Our guide, Alan, was a charming host and expert guide. He adapted the itinerary reflect our interests and was extremely knowledgeable of the history and culture of the city of Edinburgh (as well as just about any subject that arose in our conversation). We had a grand time and highly recommend Alan to those who appreciate a personalized tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carole! Thank you for your lovely review,. I'm delighted that you had a good tour, it was my absolute pleasure to show you around the city. Best & warmest regards, Alan

Our group of 6 travelers from Boston was very lucky to have Alan as our guide in Edinburgh. He is an amazing person, very interesting and knowledgeable in everything from history and culture to economics and politics. It was an unforgettable pleasure to see the beauty of Scotland and Edinburgh he showed us. Unfortunately it was only half day with Alan. It was hard to say "good bye" to such a perfect guide. We hope to meet him in a future and we would definitely recommend Alan's tours to all our friends.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Liza! Thank you for your review and kind words. It was my absolute pleasure to show you around our wonderful city, hopefully it will have made you all the more detirmined to come back and visit us again? Best wishes & fond regards, Alan

We loved our guide. Alan gave us a tour of Edinburgh today. He was very knowledgeable, but also fun. I was with my two children ages 6 and 14 and everyone had a great time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Elena, I'm delighted that you enjoyed your half day tour and were not tooooooo tired at the end of the day? It was an absolute pleasure to show you and the boys around, and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your vacation exploring the Highlands. Warmest regards, Alan

We pre-booked two tours with Alan. First, the half day Edinburgh tour and then two days later, his full day tour which he customized for us. We were not able to check into our reserved flat until later in that first day and thought this would be a good way to spend some time and get our bearings. Allan picked us up from the train along with all our luggage. He gave us more than we could have hoped for. He made sure that we were all engaged, my three teen plus children were mesmerized.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bonnie, Thank you for your lovely review, I truly wish that I could have spent more time with you all. Perhaps, if you ever come back to visit again, you will get in touch and allow me the opportunity to organise your tours? Very best & warmest regards to the whole family. Alan

We very much enjoyed our tour of Edinburgh with Alan. Although we could not depart our ship on time, Alan was very patient and extended our time at the end to compensate for the late start. He was well-dressed for the occasion which added to the ambiance of our time together. He shared a number of entertaining stories while being very informative of the area. Alan was also sensitive to our needs throughout the tour. We had lots of fun with him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely review! It was my absolute pleasure to show you around our wonderful city!! Regards, Alan

Alan was a wonderful guide. He had good historical references that he could relate to everyday. I appreciated his concern for my physical limitations and made the tour very convenient and comfortable for me. Our only regret was that we didn't book a full day tour with Alan.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cheryl. Thank you for your lovely review, it was my absolute pleasure to show you around our wonderful city. Sorry that it has taken me so long to respond to your comments. Regards, Alan

It could not have been a better way to spend our day in Edinburgh then to spend it with Alan. He picked us up in his glorious high cabin 8 passenger van and new exactly where to take us and what to show us. Great sense of humor (terrific Sean Connery imitation) and just a delightful way to spend the day. Very impressed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Mike!! Thank you for your wonderful review, It was a delight to show you around our Capital City. Warmest and best regards, Alan

Alan Fee was a fantastic tour guide. He is very personable, accommodating, and has a good sense of humor. He has a wealth of knowledge of Scottish history and is able to integrate stories of both historical and modern Scotland in a very entertaining way. We loved his stories of how various modern phrases are derived from incidents in history. His love of history is evident. He suggested a great place for lunch too! Our group highly recommends Alan for any of his tours.

Alan was very pleasant, a lot of fun, and had a very good grasp of history (not only Scottish history but world history and how the two worked together to get us to today). We would love to had more time with him and have him meet us in in Invergorden the following day. But such is life. Good luck to Alan, wherever you go. We love you.

Alan was absolutely fantastic!! His love of Scotland was infectious and his sense of humor kept us all in stitches. He made our short time in Edinburgh worth it. I really appreciated the extra attention he gave to my 12 year old, he really made her feel included. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Suzanne! Thank you for your lovely review. I'm delighted that you had a good time and enjoyed your tour. See, I told you that haggis was GREAT!!
