Will was totally engaged in the tour. Entertaining, taught us so much, right down to the city pump and most people being right handed. Alwayas with a good sense of humour. The time just flew by. Highly recommend Will.

I’m so glad you enjoyed the stories, history and facts that prove everything in the world comes from Scotland. Many thanks, Will

Will is just a terrific guide. He's friendly, funny and incredibly smart. As near as I can tell, he knows all there is to know about Scotland in general and Edinburgh in particular. It was a pleasure to spend part of our vacation with him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tracy, you are too kind. I love my city and love my country, as you now know, everything comes from Scotland and Edinburgh. Hope to see you all again one day. Will

Will took my parents and some other family members around Edinburgh last Saturday. I got this WhatsApp from my mom on Sunday, "Will was amazing ... AMAZING! We had such a great time with him and learned so much." While I wish I was there with them, I did book the tour with Will and he was kind and incredibly accommodating throughout the process. Thank you, Will. I have a feeling we'll all be back in Scotland soon and you'll be our go-to guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Megan, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it is very much appreciated. I really enjoyed meeting your parents and the rest of your family and it was great fun to show everyone around town and take them to the big name places as well as a lot of great spots off the usual tourist routes. It was easy to find stories to suit everyone and if you do ever come back do let me know. Kind regards Will

Will is personable, knowledgeable and weaves the Edinburgh story together across the ages and across the city. He made the city, the history and current events extremely interesting and we will always appreciate our time with him in Edinburgh. Our trip is much richer because of our time together.

William did a remarkable job entertaining 3 adults and 2 teens on Edinburgh's Old Town tour today. He knew the history and also little known insider stories which made the tour fun for all of us! Because one of our group was interested in Harry Potter, he made sure to include the Edinburgh connections to the author and the story. His enthusiasm for his city made our tour even more enjoyable!

Tour: #267926, Edinburgh Old Town and New Town Walking Tour., Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom    
Date: Dec 3/16

William is an incredibly knowledgable guide who breathes life into history during his tours. His understanding of Scottish history, the sites to see--from the major attractions to the hidden gems--and affable nature make a tour with him fun, educational and truly memorable. I would highly recommend any tour he offers, from tours of Edinburgh's Old Town and New Town to the Scottish highlands.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris, It was a pleasure to meet you and show you Edinburgh Old Town and the hidden gems in among the New Town as well. As you saw, there is a great contrast between the hustle and bustle of the Royal Mile and the back streets of the old milling village not far from the center of town. It was great to talk about everything from whisky to politics as we saw the sights and it was great to chat over lunch, coffee and a wee dram as well. All the best for all your travels to come. Will
