Carol W.United States
Tales were appropriate for the tour, but presentation was lackluster, amateurish and eventually downright boring; perhaps 10-yr. olds would have enjoyed his bag of tricks. After an hour and a half of being led through dark AND filthy Edinburgh with us sometimes wondering about our safety we called it quits. One by one each of us felt we had been the victim of highway robbery ($179 tour cost). I would not recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I‘m sorry the tour did not work for you. Your review provides me with an opportunity to reassess. Reviews are usually good, that does not mean to say your comments are any less valid, it perhaps just adds some perspective. I aim to show the darker side, however in future, I will reassure people they will be safe throughout. Props which may have seemed amateurish to you are chosen to be theatrical, without being frightening. I appreciate this was not to your taste. Be assured I will review all aspects.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We are sorry about Carol´s experience and we are glad to see again why Peter is such a great professional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Peter Many thanks for your rating, it is much appreciated. Peter.
My adult daughter and I decided to do something different and so we booked this tour. It is definitely a different tour then we have ever done. Peter is a very engaging gentleman and story teller who knows the city. We had a few laughs and thoroughly enjoyed this. If you want something different, entertaining and informative then you will have a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mark This tour is a bit different from the usual city tour, glad you enjoyed it. Kind regards Peter
