Martin is a fabulous guide. His knowledge of Edinburgh is unbelievable. We had his services on Mothers day. He had arranged a tea tutorial at a tea shop. It was perfect. He also reserved a table for us at a lovely restaurant where we could try Haggis and sample Scotch. One of our party had mobility issues but he didn't miss a thing. When we were on a walking tour with Martin his driver Alistair took our friend on a tour around the city that he thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you both for a wonderful day.

What a great tour of Edinburgh! We wanted to learn more about the city, and we were lucky enough to have Martin as our guide. He loves this city and is so willing to answer questions and provide insights. There were places we had passed by of which we had no idea of the significance. What a great opportunity to step outside of the role of tourist and learn about Edinburgh from an insider. Thank you for a great day Martin. And thanks for pacing yourself to the slower legs of these Canadians!

Our tour with Martin was terrific. He met us at our hotel and then we walked up to the Castle to tour the castle. He pointed out items of interest on our way to the castle and helped us buy our tickets quickly. He explained all the buildings in the Castle and then let us explore on our own. He then took us along the Royal Mile and other spots explaining the history of various buildings. He gave us a quick tour of New Town and left us with some great recommendations for dinner. A lovely tour!

He arranged for an excellent driver, Alistair, who would drop us off for travel on foot and then pick us up smoothly under extremely crowded and difficult traffic conditions. Martin and Alistair worked as an excellent team in getting us through the major tourist sites. My wife uses a wheelchair when she travels because she has impaired mobility.

This was our second full tour day, and for this tour we had a car and driver. It turned out to be a good choice, as there was a bit of a drizzle that day. We loved experiencing all of Scotland's weather-- it was perfect! With the drizzle gone, Martin took us on a walking tour along a river. It was a remarkable area that we didn't know about at all. The houses along the river were spectacular, as was the scenery. We also visited an historic home, and some other sites, and had a very tasty lunch.

Martin was charming and very energetic. I wish he had given more input as to how we should use our tour time. I feel for $1200 we should have seen more of Edinburgh and the area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I regret the tour did not live up to all your expectations, and in view of your comments I have revised the URL for this tour to explain which optional visits are in town and which are out of town.Your husband, son and grandson appeared to so much enjoy the options chosen in the city for our tour that I have developed for other customers a tour incorporating these attractions.

We had a wonderful day with Martin. He picked us up at the pier, gave us a riding tour of Edinburgh and then took us to the castle for a tour and walk down the Royal Mile, with a few side trips. All the while explaining things along the way. He is very knowledgeable and entertaining and we couldn't have asked for a better time. I would recommend Martin to anyone desiring to see Edinburgh.

We recently had a wonderful visit to Edinburgh and had a fabulous tour of Edinburgh Castle and the Royal mile with Martin. Martin promptly arrived at our hotel- we had a great tour of the castle. Even more remarkable was our walk down the Royal mile - Martin was a wealth of knowledge, funny, charming and connected with our small group so well. The highlight was lunch at the law library- a true hidden gem that we would never have found otherwise. By the end- Martin was an old friend-

The tour itself was wonderful. I highly recommend Martin he is a knowledgeable and great guide. HOWEVER, on the morning of the excursion, due to a communication error between Martin and my travel agent I was forced to pay an extra $200 dollars for a larger van because he had me down for only 7 guests, not the 13 I originally booked. This greatly detracted from our tour experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: For the record the booking confirmation recieved from travel agent was for 7 visitors. I managed to obtain an alternative vehicle and leave on tour within 30 minutes. The extra payment was the normal difference in cost for this tour when using a 16 Seat in place of an 8 seat vehicle and no way covered the extra cost I paid to obtain a larger vehicle instantly.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We were sorry to hear about the miscommunication, and have refunded Mr Williams $200 for the extra cost of the rental.

I know that we saw more in one day with Martin than we would have seen in several days on our own, and we learned so much more from Martin than we would have on our own. I highly recommend touring Edinburgh with Martin. This is my second tour with Tours by Locals (1st in Paris in 2013).

Martin is Edinburg. His knowledge and love of the city is contagious. He knows every nook and cranny of the city.He dresses in local attire. His car tour of the city was impeccable;it hit every important site. His tour of the Palace was all encompassing as was the walk down the mile long road. He did allow us a WEE few minutes to shop on the way to castle. In his enthusiasm to explain every fact, we ran out of time and had to view the castle from the outside. We never had a chance to go inside.
