Thank you David for a delightful tour of Edinburgh. It was fun, informative and enjoyable. You are very knowledgeable and easy to be with. I appreciate you understanding my inability to walk long distances and the fact that you were able to accommodate me so well. Thank you also for being flexible and allowing us to tour a small scotch distillery close to Edinburgh. I would highly recommend you to everyone. Thanks again!

We had the best tour of Edinburgh with Dave. He provided a tour that included the sites we wanted to see as well as knowledgeable tour of the city. I emailed him ahead of time that my mother used a walker and he structured our tour to accommodate limited walking. He was exactly on time, included some water and snacks and answered questions. This is not a robot tour, but a specialized experience including some folktales. If you want a great tour, HIRE DAVID.

David started our tour with a taste of Scotland treats which were a nice surprise! He made us feel welcomed and was extremely knowledgeable. We were really excited to try local foods (haggis and a deep fried mars bar) which he made possible during our busy schedule. David was extremely friendly and kept great conversations throughout the tour! Thank you David for given us an amazing and comfortable experience of Edinburgh!

David is an outstanding tour guide, with a strong knowledge of Scottish history. He catered the day to our interests and he stopped multiple times for local photo opportunities. The St. Andrews tour and our time with David exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend him to others.
Sue WeiermanUnited States
I asked David to plan a tour with special requests of seeing the Kelpies and also time to climb the Wallace Monument. He was great with communication as we planned the tour, and he also added a couple of items that were important to us, such as Calton Hill and an authentic souvenir store. The cab was spotless with big windows, and being a cab driver, David also took us to the airport on the morning we left Edinburgh. He is super!
Sue WeiermanUnited States
We took two tours by David, and each time, we were extremely pleased by his kindness and knowledge. The Scottish Borders tour started up by Arthur's Seat, and then to Scott's View, Melrose Abbey, Abbotsford House, and Rosslyn Chapel. All places did not disappoint, including a nice lunch in the middle. David was very good at finding out our wishes, and ensuring that we were able to spend adequate time at each place, and also, to take photos and buy postcards.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your review Sue. I had great fun both days and am delighted you enjoyed your time in Edinburgh. David
Mildred LauHong Kong
David was a wonderful guide! He made good use of the 8-hours to show us all we wanted to visit. He was very knowledgeable about the sites and the history. We enjoyed so much in Edinburgh with this professional guide. Looking forward to seeing him again for our next visit. Thank you so much, David!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind review Mildred, I had a great day with you all and was delighted you enjoyed your time in Edinburgh.

David was super! He made our day in Edinburgh really special. He customized the tour to make sure we saw all the things we wanted to see and made suggestions on things to see that we didn't know about. He was very knowledgeable about sites and history and was a fun guide. Highly recommend and we will use him again when we are back to see more. Thank you, David!!

Christa SokolitzUnited States
David G. was a fabulous guide! My husband and I really enjoyed learning about the history of Edinburgh and seeing some of the most interesting & famous places. David also kept it interesting for our daughters (age 9 & 12) by mixing in some Harry Potter stops. He also kept them going with great snacks & waters. First class tour and even better tour guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed it, it was a pleasure spending the day with you all. I look forward too seeing you again sometime. Ps, Cheers for the beers David, they tasted great!!

Byron CalhounUnited States
David arrived promptly with an excellent tour of both the "Old Town" and "New Town" in Edinburgh. Only had time for a short half-day tour but well worth it since David really showed the top spots in town with suggestions for other sites if time allowed. High-light of tour is the Firth with the 3 Bridges! Breathtaking! Would recommend highly and hope to get back again for another tour!

Only way and only guide to see the Highlands! Knowledge and understanding beyond expectations. FANTASTIC!
Mary SinclairTULSA, OK, United States
The best 2 days we have ever spent with ANY guide and we have had some really great guides! David understood 3 year old kid needs and 45 year old son Clan history dreams. USE DAVID! He will work with you to the limits of his ability. Always went the extra mile and sometimes extra 200 miles to see that we got the trip of our dreams. He was the best!
Lina ZelikoffUnited States
David was a fantastic tour guide, very much in tune with our requests and interests. He was our guide for 2 days. He showed us truly stunning sights of Scotland that we will never forget. He altered the schedule based on our requests and interests and my son was very happy to see the inspiration for Diagon Alley, that David made a detour to show him. :) Great visit to Scotland - thanks to David! Lina
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: As I said previously on the feedback from the other tour thanks very much for your booking, it was a pleasure to show you around.
Lina ZelikoffUnited States
David was a fantastic tour guide, very much in tune with our requests and interests. He is very energetic and was very happy to show us his favorite sights. We had a packed schedule, including a visit to the Tattoo. David made it all possible to get everywhere on time. He knows the city, good shopping and fun places for our teens. It was like having a friend during the trip. Go Hibs! If you want a fantastic tour- I highly recommend David! Lina
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much Lina. I thouroughly enjoyed the company of you and your family and it was a pleasure to show you around. The boys behaviour and manners are an absolute credit to you. Thanks again.

Judith HolzmanUnited States
The car, a taxi, is extremely uncomfortable. It seems to have no shocks. Two out of 4 have to sit backward. There was an event that made some sights impossible, however guide seemed to be not very enthusiastic and was separated from us by glass, making it hard to converse. He tried his best under the circumstances.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry to read your comments Judith, I can accept travelling by taxi is not for everyone however I do make it clear my tours are taken in a taxi and the vehicle on the whole proves very popular. I’d have to defend myself and my vehicle from your reference to “no shocks” , my car is meticulously maintained and inspected by Edinburgh City council licensing department. The cycling event that closed most of the Old Town to traffic was indeed a disaster and made it impossible to conduct the tour as normal.

David was very knowledgeable and accommodating, not sure what more you can want from a driver/guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed it Charley, the weather was good to us. I thoroughly enjoyed showing the two of you around. Enjoy the rest of your trip. David
Wayne RudisillUnited States
We had a very good tour with David in Edinburgh. We told him we would like to see the Royal Yacht, The Britannia so he suggested we do that first on the tour. He told us to take our time while he waited for us. After we had coffee at the Tea Room aboard the yacht, we rejoined David to tour the rest of Edinburgh. He showed us the highlights of the city as well as driving out into the countryside for some amazing views of the city. He got us very close to the castle to take pictures. Would recommend!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Glad you enjoyed it folks, it was a real pleasure spending the day with you both. Hopefully our paths cross again some day. David.
Paige HuttoUnited States
David was absolutely amazing! We fell in love with him immediately! Very personable and easy to talk to and full of knowledge! We had done an amazing tour of Edinburgh the day before with one David's colleagues and wanted to see more of the countryside this day . Not knowing exactly what we wanted to see, David took the lead and we had a fabulous day. This is about my 6th time i have used Tours by locals and I have an outstanding experience every Time! I'm sold on this group!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I’m glad you and Tommy had a great time Paige, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you both and show you around. Enjoy the rest of your trip and have a safe journey home. I look forward to seeing you again some time. David
