We were impressed with both Peter's fund of knowledge as well as his ability to keep all ages engaged. He was accommodating with regard to the seniors who were with us and added a bit of whimsy for the children. He went above and beyond researching specific places we wanted to explore. Would definitely recommend him for family groups!

Peter is a great tour guide and highly recommended. He made the tour not only interesting for us, but for our 10 year old son as well. He is very knowledgeable about the city, and its history. Being a former guide at the castle, he has insight into many small details of the castle itself. He arrived early at our hotel for our walking tour, and even spent more time with us than originally allotted. I researched all the local guides before choosing Peter, and I know I made the right choice

Excellent presentation of history and the environment of the castle, Peter knows his stuff and it's very interesting. Only criticism is minor - he was a bit "mechanical" at times, probably because he does it day in day out. But undoubtedly best way to get a real handle on a new place and edinburgh was fab.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. I take on board your comments and thank you for pointing out how you felt. Things were a little rushed, given we had an hour less than we thought, however this should not have affected my delivery of the tour. Thanks again.

Peter was a wonderful tour guide around Edinburgh! Our group was 6 college age girls on study abroad from America. We only had 2 full days in Edinburgh, so this tour gave the perfect balance between seeing classic sites and a deeper look into the history of the city. Peter showed us so many things in only 4.5 hours! He not only gave us the history of the city, he also brought in personal experiences, funny stories, and tried to find ways to throw in some Scottish-American history, too! Great tour!

Wow, can't say enough about Peter. He was so knowledgeable, entertaining and animated. Kept us laughing. Not sure why others say you can do Edinburgh on your own. You miss so much without a guide. We went down side streets and alleys and learned so much about Edinburgh and their famous residents past and current. I was impressed by how he was so attentive, making sure we kept up with him and could hear him. A true gentleman. I could go on and on about Peter. Had a wonderful day in Edinburgh!
