Toby picked us up promptly and we started our tour of Rosslyn Chapel, Craigmillar Castle, Edinburgh Castle, Rebus and Harry Potter sites, Old Town and New Town. Toby was engaging, knowledgeable and personable. We had to change some of our plans because the Queen was in residence and some areas were closed but he still managed to keep our tour flowing smoothly.

Toby was flexible and knowledgeable. With very bad traffic conditions , he was able to maneuver as best he could to make good time. He suggested skipping Edinburgh Castle in favor of Rosslyn Chapel and Holyrood....good move. Interesting conversationalist.

Toby was a pleasant and knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed our full day tour despite the frigid temperatures.
We spent a very pleasant full day with Toby. Driving plus walking was an ideal formula as it was cold and windy and this also allowed us to visit places outside of the city centre such as fascinating Craigmillar Castle. Toby is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Edinburgh, its history and its architectural beauties. He offered us glimpses into secret corners of the city, made every stone and brick come alive with his stories, and was always happy to answer our questions. A top class guide!

excellent tour guide and very informative
Toby is a terrific guide. He is extremely knowledgeable and funny, kind and courteous. He showed us around Edinburgh and the surrounding area on the day after an overnight flight, making the first day of our trip to Scotland very special. Highly recommended.

Toby is a delight. If you are interested in architecture, art, and history of Scotland, he's your guide. It's like having a tour with your favorite college professor with deep insight into lots of the sights you will see. If you're looking for an actor to entertain you with questionable ghost stories, seek elsewhere. We had a wonderful time on two different full day tours with Toby. You will not regret your decision to book with him.

This was just exactly the tour I wanted--got around the city a lot, saw lots of architecture and sites/sights, went outside the old city, went to a museum I wouldn't have gone to otherwise, had a wonderful lunch. It was interesting and enlightening! And Toby was so helpful with getting around in the city and restaurants close by where I was staying. Thank you so much, Toby!

This is my second tour with Toby and it was a wonderful combination of visiting sights per my requests and his suggestions. Toby is knowledgeable, polite, and kind and is a wonderful tour guide. I highly recommend him to be your guide, especially if you have a sincere desire to befriend all things Scotland.

Was very knowledgeable about the history and architecture. Was very accommodating and flexible. We were;t sure what we wanted to see and if we wanted to walk or drive but Toby was happy to show us whatever we wanted to look at.

Toby was prompt and took us all over the Edinburgh area in his spotless Saab. He suggested spots, we voted then off we went. We were with him for 8+ hours. We finally had to throw in the towel. About 5 hours were spent outside of city centre with the rest walking or driving. But Toby let us dictate the split. He knows the architecture and long history of Edinburgh which was a plus and the reason we chose him. We recommend Toby to those who want an in depth tour of Edinburgh and surroundings.

Toby is very knowledgeable & personable. His flexibility was a real asset which more than met our needs. Even while his accent proved hard to understand at times, we thoroughly enjoyed him as a tour guide & look forward to Glasgow!!! Excellent tour!

Great tour, great vehicle. Took us to places we didn't even know about in the area. Highly recommend letting him make suggestions to where to go and what to see with only a few details on the highlights you had in mind. Overall a great tour and guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a very nice day out and we certainly fitted lots in !
Carol SchmidtUnited States

We had a delightful day with Toby. We took the scenic route along the coast up to St. Andrews and stopped at a local festival along the way. He is very knowledgeable about the history of Edinburgh & Scotland. The four of us had a great time & highly recommend Toby. He's also a good driver. As American's we are not used to being on the other side of the road, but we felt very comfortable with him.
