We had a fantastic day with Bob! He took us to the Castle and told us about it giving us stories of the inhabitants and towns people. We enjoyed learning about the Royal Mile from a humorous perspective. Bob was accommodating, personable, and flexible. Prior to our tour he quickly answered my emails. He arranged a van/ driver to accommodate our party of 7 which was perfect for touring and our driver, Alex, drove us safely to our destinations. Bob's friendly manor and humor made this tour a delightful time

Wow, Robert was spectacular! He created a great itinerary based on his questions and our input for a perfect tour of Edinburgh. And he included the two most historic parts of the city (joke- you'll have to ask him to show you)! And he pushed the tour over his allotment so we could experience the Rosslyn Chapel slightly out of town which we were s happy we did!

A very nice gentleman with good knowledge of the area. If you use him plan out the the sites to visit in advance. We didn't and it probably made for less of a tour. That was not his fault, but ours.

Bob McCulloch is a wonderful guide who gave us a fantastic city tour during our first visit to Edinburgh. He is also a great gentleman who will stay in our hearts for years to come. Bob showed us the highlights of this fabulous city with a wonderful introduction of where all of the sights are, the history of the city and Scotland, and most importantly to us, the amazing history of golf in Leith and Edinburgh. A day with Bob was the perfect end to a wonderful cruise. We were delighted with our choice.

Bob was a great guide! He did exactly what we needed which was a wonderful overview of the Edinburgh area with many great Scottish stories thrown in along the way. He made good use of our time since the city was crowded the day we came and we were able to see quite a lot even so. My father is in a wheelchair and Bob accommodated that very well. We highly recommend his tours.

Our day-long tour of Edinburgh with Bob couldn't have been better. We were so glad that we hired him to get the most out of our short stay in the city. It rained most of the day so but we still were able to tour the city since we were in his Black Cab - which was a great experience all in itself. He included all the important sites, but also tailored the tour to our interests. Bob was both entertaining and informative and my husband and I would highly recommend him.

The tour was OK. The taxi used for the tour is not very comfortable for day-long rides. The guide is an expert on the places and sights on the tour. Being a taxi, the seats are located further in and this made it difficult to transfer my daughter from the wheelchair to the seat or back out.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: London Taxis are used by both London and Scottish Taxi drivers to ferry people around daily there are over 40,000 used nationwide and are purpose built for the comfort and leisure of the customer, with full government backing to their style and design. They are also purpose built to take wheelchairs, however when you have a wheelchair person and four other people in a vehicle it can become a tight fit. I am pleased that he liked the historical fact given to his party during the day.

Our tour with Bob was absolutely delightful and so very informative! He was full of knowledge, history, stories and lore -all things Edinburgh- and so personal and charming, we hated saying goodbye to him. Our only regret was to not have booked him for the entire day, as the tour was exactly what we had wanted, only better! He will start off as your tour guide, and by the end of the tour you will have made a wonderful friend and learned more than you thought possible about such a beautiful city.
