We had a wonderful tour with Andy. Everything about this tour was exceptional. Andy met us at the dock (we were on a cruise) with a spotless car, right on time. He tailored the tour to our desires because we had specific places in Edinburgh that we wanted to see. He gave us great information about this beautiful city and took us to places we may have missed if we had tried this on our own. He even knew the perfect shop for my husband to get a handmade kilt. Definitely book Andy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Pat. Thank you for the glowing review and delighted to hear that you had a wonderful day. However, that is down to you both being such an easygoing couple to show around. So pleased that Bill was able to get a kilt after all these years. I hope to see a photo once he receives the finished article. Thank you again for taking the time to write a review. Kind Regards Andy

Our day with Andy in Edinburgh was the best tour of our 3 weeks in the UK! Andy loves Edinburgh and it shows in his enthusiasm, depth of knowledge, and pure joy with which Andy shares his city. From the minute he picked us up, until he dropped off his six happy tourists, he kept us interested! His car was comfortable, he is easy to hear and understand and he provided some extra personal touches that made our day special. Thank you Andy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Molly. Thank you for such a fantastic review. However, a tour day can only be a successful day when everyone participates in the day....and you all participated in spades. Thank you for being the perfect group to work with. Anytime any of you come back to Edinburgh, let me know and let's have another fun day. Best wishes to everyone. Andy

We really enjoyed our tour of Edinburgh with Andy. His knowledge of history, the local places we saw, and current Scottish life was amazing. His van is very comfortable and he really knows how to navigate around Edinburgh. Above all his personality and engagement with our group of 6 made the tour go way beyond the normal tour experience. We highly recommend Andy for any tour you are considering. Jim, Jeanne, Don, Sharon, Paul, and Kerri

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jim, it was my pleasure to be able to show you all around Edinburgh. I knew from the moment that I met you all that you were keen to have fun. That made my day so much easier. Please pass on my best to the rest of the Scotch fans in the group. If you ever plan to come back, give me a shout. Thanks again for the fantastic review. Andy

Andy was our guide in Edinburgh. He is so knowledgable and interesting, making our 5 hours with him very enjoyable. His large automobile made all four of us very comfortable. I would highly recommend his services as a private tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Melanie Thanks for the great review and thank you also for being such a fun group to be with. Your parents were a pleasure to meet and chat with. Please pass on my best to them both. Thank you again. Andy

Andy was an exceptional Tour Guide, he suggested several things and we customized others at the dock and everything went extremely well. He was very polite, professional and knowledgable. This was my second time in Edinburg and next time we go I would not look anyone else. Andy deserves the highest rating as a guide and an individual.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gabriel, thank you for taking the time to write such a generous and kind review. Likewise, you were a wonderful group to show around; easygoing, inquisitive and chatty. This is all a guide can ask of his group. So, thank you for being a wonderful group to show around Edinburgh and hopefully we wil all meet again one day. Kind Regards Andy

Andy was excellent. He made the tour exciting, funny and informative. I would use him again if we return to the area

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Norman, thank you so much for writing your review. Despite the cruise ship tenders holding you up and preventing you from getting to shore on time, at least you were still able to get into Edinburgh and see the highlights of the city. I look forward to your return in the future.
