Tour: #388533, In Depth Edinburgh - a Half Day, Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom    view tour
Date: Oct 4/18

David arrived promptly with an excellent tour of both the "Old Town" and "New Town" in Edinburgh. Only had time for a short half-day tour but well worth it since David really showed the top spots in town with suggestions for other sites if time allowed. High-light of tour is the Firth with the 3 Bridges! Breathtaking! Would recommend highly and hope to get back again for another tour!

The best 2 days we have ever spent with ANY guide and we have had some really great guides! David understood 3 year old kid needs and 45 year old son Clan history dreams. USE DAVID! He will work with you to the limits of his ability. Always went the extra mile and sometimes extra 200 miles to see that we got the trip of our dreams. He was the best!

David was a fantastic tour guide, very much in tune with our requests and interests. He was our guide for 2 days. He showed us truly stunning sights of Scotland that we will never forget. He altered the schedule based on our requests and interests and my son was very happy to see the inspiration for Diagon Alley, that David made a detour to show him. :) Great visit to Scotland - thanks to David! Lina

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: As I said previously on the feedback from the other tour thanks very much for your booking, it was a pleasure to show you around.

David was a fantastic tour guide, very much in tune with our requests and interests. He is very energetic and was very happy to show us his favorite sights. We had a packed schedule, including a visit to the Tattoo. David made it all possible to get everywhere on time. He knows the city, good shopping and fun places for our teens. It was like having a friend during the trip. Go Hibs! If you want a fantastic tour- I highly recommend David! Lina

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much Lina. I thouroughly enjoyed the company of you and your family and it was a pleasure to show you around. The boys behaviour and manners are an absolute credit to you. Thanks again.

The car, a taxi, is extremely uncomfortable. It seems to have no shocks. Two out of 4 have to sit backward. There was an event that made some sights impossible, however guide seemed to be not very enthusiastic and was separated from us by glass, making it hard to converse. He tried his best under the circumstances.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry to read your comments Judith, I can accept travelling by taxi is not for everyone however I do make it clear my tours are taken in a taxi and the vehicle on the whole proves very popular. I’d have to defend myself and my vehicle from your reference to “no shocks” , my car is meticulously maintained and inspected by Edinburgh City council licensing department. The cycling event that closed most of the Old Town to traffic was indeed a disaster and made it impossible to conduct the tour as normal.

We had a very good tour with David in Edinburgh. We told him we would like to see the Royal Yacht, The Britannia so he suggested we do that first on the tour. He told us to take our time while he waited for us. After we had coffee at the Tea Room aboard the yacht, we rejoined David to tour the rest of Edinburgh. He showed us the highlights of the city as well as driving out into the countryside for some amazing views of the city. He got us very close to the castle to take pictures. Would recommend!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed it folks, it was a real pleasure spending the day with you both. Hopefully our paths cross again some day. David.

David was absolutely amazing! We fell in love with him immediately! Very personable and easy to talk to and full of knowledge! We had done an amazing tour of Edinburgh the day before with one David's colleagues and wanted to see more of the countryside this day . Not knowing exactly what we wanted to see, David took the lead and we had a fabulous day. This is about my 6th time i have used Tours by locals and I have an outstanding experience every Time! I'm sold on this group!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I’m glad you and Tommy had a great time Paige, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you both and show you around. Enjoy the rest of your trip and have a safe journey home. I look forward to seeing you again some time. David
