Our tour in Edinburgh was absolutely wonderful. We were in an old London cab (which was a bit crowded for four people but still charming). Bob McCulloch entertained us with wonderful stories about Edinburgh and certainly was able to tell us all the history of the town and area. We always love Tours by Locals, and this one lived up to our expectations.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Hallie for your very kind review I hope the rest of your trip went well Best Regards Bob

Robert was on time, knew everything, was very funny. Felt like I spent the day with a real Scot. He has a well working but vintage cab. Great day

We had a fantastic day with Bob! He took us to the Castle and told us about it giving us stories of the inhabitants and towns people. We enjoyed learning about the Royal Mile from a humorous perspective. Bob was accommodating, personable, and flexible. Prior to our tour he quickly answered my emails. He arranged a van/ driver to accommodate our party of 7 which was perfect for touring and our driver, Alex, drove us safely to our destinations. Bob's friendly manor and humor made this tour a delightful time

Wow, Robert was spectacular! He created a great itinerary based on his questions and our input for a perfect tour of Edinburgh. And he included the two most historic parts of the city (joke- you'll have to ask him to show you)! And he pushed the tour over his allotment so we could experience the Rosslyn Chapel slightly out of town which we were s happy we did!

Robert (Bob) is a great, knowledgable tour guide! We had a great day in Edinburgh seeing so many sights! Bob took us everywhere and it was fun driving around in his beautiful little black taxi-car! We saw everything we planned on seeing and so much more! Bob was a perfect gentleman & we had a perfect day in Scotland! Bob fulfilled our wish list of sights to see & more! Bob took us to some stores to shop and to a great local pub! We highly recommend Bob, you won't be disappointed! 100%, A++++++

Bob McCulloch is a wonderful guide who gave us a fantastic city tour during our first visit to Edinburgh. He is also a great gentleman who will stay in our hearts for years to come. Bob showed us the highlights of this fabulous city with a wonderful introduction of where all of the sights are, the history of the city and Scotland, and most importantly to us, the amazing history of golf in Leith and Edinburgh. A day with Bob was the perfect end to a wonderful cruise. We were delighted with our choice.

We had been to Edinburgh before so we wanted to do something different. Robert was great. He picked us up by car and we got out of the city to see some stuff that we hadn't seen when we were there before. He was funny and entertaining with local stories.

Mr. Robert was an amazing tour guide. He was a fantastic storyteller and had our kids enthralled with his knowledge and love of this amazing area. We are very glad we used Tours By Locals and were able to meet Mr. Robert and spend time learning from him and enjoying the wonderful city of Edinburgh.

Bob was a great guide! He did exactly what we needed which was a wonderful overview of the Edinburgh area with many great Scottish stories thrown in along the way. He made good use of our time since the city was crowded the day we came and we were able to see quite a lot even so. My father is in a wheelchair and Bob accommodated that very well. We highly recommend his tours.

I'm glad we booked this tour. I don't think we could have seen a fraction of what we saw but for being able to be taken around in Bob's cab. Edinburgh is a fascinating city, and Bob is quite the raconteur.

Our day-long tour of Edinburgh with Bob couldn't have been better. We were so glad that we hired him to get the most out of our short stay in the city. It rained most of the day so but we still were able to tour the city since we were in his Black Cab - which was a great experience all in itself. He included all the important sites, but also tailored the tour to our interests. Bob was both entertaining and informative and my husband and I would highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kathleen for your very kind comments it was a pleasure to guide you and your husband round my city Best Regards Bob

The tour was OK. The taxi used for the tour is not very comfortable for day-long rides. The guide is an expert on the places and sights on the tour. Being a taxi, the seats are located further in and this made it difficult to transfer my daughter from the wheelchair to the seat or back out.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: London Taxis are used by both London and Scottish Taxi drivers to ferry people around daily there are over 40,000 used nationwide and are purpose built for the comfort and leisure of the customer, with full government backing to their style and design. They are also purpose built to take wheelchairs, however when you have a wheelchair person and four other people in a vehicle it can become a tight fit. I am pleased that he liked the historical fact given to his party during the day.
