A perfect way, to enjoy a day in Edinburgh. Peter's knowledge and enthusiasm of the city made the six hours fly by. Visits to the iconic sites like Calton Hill and the Castle were combined with off the grid locations like graveyards and the amazing RSB property of Dundas House. Peter's ability of weaving local folk law stories with Scottish history transports you from the cities past through to the present. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ian Glad you all enjoyed the tour. Peter

Peter combined a rich knowledge of history with lifelong experience in Edinburgh. He interspersed stories of growing up in the area with explanations of cultural, geologic, political and historical significance. We really appreciated Peter's adeptness in modifying our day to suit our interests and physical abilities. His rapport and genuine interest was evident throughout our trip. We would definitely recommend Peter and hope to see him again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jim Good to hear that the tour went well for you both, all the best for the future. Peter
Peter was a terrific guide, he tailored the tour for us, which was great. Peter is extremely knowledgeable about Edinburgh's history, he could answer all our questions. We had an amazing day, our 14 year old loved hearing about Edinburgh's history, Peter knew exactly how to keep her interested.

Peter was a excellent guide. He was a good story teller. He tailored my tour to my interests. It was an excellent tour to take the first day of my trip to get familiar with the layout of the city. I felt afterward that I could walk around and have a good idea where I was. As a American He taught me how to cross the streets. I needed to know where a post office was and he showed me that. He showed me where to get the bus to the airport. I learned a great deal about the history of the city.

So, my nephew and I took the "How to Tour Edinburgh in a Day! (7hrs) Full Day Private Tour" tour today with Peter. Peter was waiting for us in the lobby of our hotel early, and took the time to sit down with us and discuss how we wanted the day to unfold. It was a fantastic tour, time well spent with a very knowledgeable man who had many great stories to tell. I can go on and on about our experience, but space is limited here. If you are planning a trip to Edinburgh, all I can say is contact Peter!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James Thank you for you kind words and it was my pleasure to take two good guys around the castle and city. Hope you enjoy the Highlands and safe journey home. Peter.

Our tour of Edinburgh couldn't have been better, all thanks to our wonderful tour guide, Peter. Peter was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and relaxed. Although we covered a large amount of territory in the 7 hour time period, his warm and calm demeanour made the entire tour seem like a very well informed family member was showing us around his beautiful city. It was evident from the start that Peter was very proud of his city. The historical details were relevant and very interesting. Super!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi No Can I just say that I had great time with you guys as well. Peter.
Great guide, a lot of knowledge, very friendly, lots of histories, and experience. Would definitely book tour with him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Xavier Many thanks for your comments they are much appreciated. Peter

Peter is a nice and courteous gentleman who made us walk all through the best points of attractions in Edinburgh. He is very knowledgeable and we felt the whole atmosphere of the city. We spent almost the whole day with him (8 hours) walking all around the Old Town, so if you are going to hire him, bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes, your camera and your enthusiasm for starting your exploration!
Chuck WeldenUnited States

Having booked Peter for a 7-hour tour of Edinburgh last weekend, we were delighted with his knowledge and professionalism. He pitched the tour just right in relation to our group of 4 and was enthusiastic and inspiring. The smooth Scottish accent of course helped!!! Thank you Peter for enlightening us all.

Kelly TallioUnited States
Peter was a joy to spend the day with. We were only in Edinburgh for 3 days and booking the tour with Peter was the best decision. He showed us so much of his wonderful city and in a very informative and charming way. Do not hesitate to book this tour. He is very knowledgable, adaptable and most importantly a kind gentleman who is obviously very proud of his heritage and city. I will not hesitate to recommend both Edinburgh and Peter to my friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kelly It was great to meet you both, and a joy for me to have two people so interested in the city. If you are ever in Edinburgh again drop me an email so we can meet up. Kind regards Peter

Kathleen McCleskeyUnited States
What a great day. Peter was really great. My husband had injuried his knee right before we arrived. Peter was good about checking to be sure we could all climb the hills and steps to get to our distinations for the day. We say many of the highlights of Edinburgh and will come back to see more. Peter's knowledge and stories were great. We learned a lot of history and for me that was really enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kathleen It was my pleasure to take you all round. Kind regards Peter
Peter was fantastic! It was like a super, condensed history class with a cardio work out, but told like story. I thoroughly enjoyed my day. Rebecca
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Rebecca My thanks for you comments they are appreciated, and I enjoyed your company as well. Peter
Janet D.United States
We were in Edinburgh for only a weekend. Having Peter as our guide was the best way to see the city. He shared the history interspersed with stories & interesting tidbits. We got a sense of the past and culture of the old & new Edinburgh. He also took us through back streets to avoid the crowds. Even though it was a fast-paced day, we felt as if we were spending a relaxing day with a friend. Peter was superb, and we hope we get to see him again. You'll have an awesome time if Peter is your guide!

We had been to Edinburgh 8 years ago for three days and enjoyed this day more than 8 years ago. We enjoyed Peter's wit and his knowledge of Edinburgh. Would highly recommend him. We are seasoned travellers and we got our money's worth as well as our exercise! Thanks Peter Dave and debbie
William JonesUnited States
What a fantastic day!! Peter's knowledge of Scottish history and Edinburgh made the entire day very interesting. When you throw in his subtle Scot humor and wonderful story telling, you have the makings of a highly entertaining and informative day. You could never learn so much on your own!
