First of all, you cannot beat Sara's response time to confirm a tour within 5 minutes at 6pm one night for a tour at 11am the following day....how impressive!!! And then we met the knowledgeable bubbly young woman in person, who took us around old town, pointing out so much history, architecture, geology and fun little stories. Thank you Sara for the most delightful 3 hours. We learned a lot and will come back for more!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elisabeth, thank you so much for this marvellous review: it was a true pleasure to meet you all and show you some of my favourite spots in Edinburgh! Hopefully see you again in the future! Take care and be well, Sarah

Sarah C. made our first day in Edinburgh so wonderful! She instantly made us feel at ease and right at home with her genuine warmth and her incredible knowledge of this extraordinary country and town. We were initially very overwhelmed with all of the options for the following days and Sarah was kind enough to send us a very detailed email with places for us to visit based on our interests. I would HIGHLY recommend booking your tour while in Edinburgh with Sarah; you won't be disappointed!!

I was wise enough, to select Sarah to guide my 2 friends and myself in Edinburgh for 2 half day tours— Oct 2 and Oct 3—Old & New town. I emailed Sarah several times with questions—she was more than responsive—emailed links to restaurants, cultural venues and and historical sites, which were quite helpful. Even if she hadn't done so, she was wonderful—a perfect choice.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, Phyllis and Julia, thanks a thousand for your fantastic review! Spending time with you all was magic! I am so glad you enjoyed out two days together as much as I did. I wish you all the best and I hope to see you again in the future! Take care and be well, Sarah

Sarah was brilliant. Her energy, enthusiasm and passion for what she does carried us through a cold, wet, windy day and made for a fantastic tour. Without her we would have found a warm spot and stayed inside but Sarah was not deterred and as a result we enjoyed a day that will give us wonderful memories for a very long time. Sarah demonstrated a detailed knowledge of the history of Scotland and specifically Edinburgh and she was able to combine it with some really interesting anecdotes of characters.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Frank, Maura, Paul and Noreen, thanks a million for this fantastic review! It was really amazing to meet you and share with you my favourite spots in the city and of course stories and legends connected to the territory. We really had a lot of fun together!

Sarah was a superb tour guide. She met us promptly and we headed out. She gave us a full agenda filled with history, anecdotes, and pertinent information about the city and sites. She was accommodating to a few things we specifically wanted to see and even researched something I had mentioned prior to meeting her. Finally, she recommended some dining options and the first one we tried was as good as she said. I highly recommend Sarah and ToursByLocals. What a great time we had!

Extremely nice experience! Sarah was the perfect guide for us because she adapted so well to the different levels of English within our group, explaining again (and again!) patiently and also giving us time for translating until everybody was on board. Sarah is a very likable person and we all felt so comfortable during the tour - it felt almost hard to say good-bye to her at the end! She also offered that we could send her a mail later if we still had questions which I thought very sweet. Top marks!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vielen lieben Dank guys for your wonderful review: it was fantastic to meet you and have you on my tour! We really had a fun time and it was great to share my love for Edinburgh and its history with all of you. Hopefully see you again in the future, Sarah

She greeted us both mornings with gifts of traditional Scottish treats, made lunch reservations for us, and had good recommendations for dining and shopping.

We had a wonderful introduction to Edinburgh with Sarah's competent guidance. She took us to many places, both typical tourist spots and out of the mainstream. Sarah is a wealth of knowledge and shared so much with us including history, architecture, contemporary and local culture. She is a pleasure to be with -- we enjoyed her company immensely.

Sarah put together an excellent tour for four adults of Edinburgh Castle, sharing with us the history of Edinburgh, and the story of the castle. Even though the crowds were huge, as we were here in the midst of the Edinburgh Festival, she was able to keep us moving and see all the main sights. We even got to experience the "haar",Edinburgh's version of misty, spitting rain, amidst the Castle heights. She gave us a great recommendation for lunch. Thanks for a great morning, Sarah.

My family and I met Sarah to discover the myriad historical/cultural sites the city is rife with. Sarah helped us accomplish that and much more. From the beginning she was accommodating and personable in a way that can only be genuine. More than that she presented us with no small amount of historical and cultural information which often took the form of entertaining conversation rather than lecture. Sarah's tour-guiding capabilities was exceptional and she clearly has a knack for this.

Sarah was fantastic! She made it easy to connect and was flexible with time as we were running late. So relaxed and warm and then we set off on our tour. While engaging in a brief overview, she would guide us to a spot you would not find on a tour guide map and share a fascinating story about it. She was so knowledgeable not only about the history, but knew of interesting tidbits of architecture, the culture and a deeper history. Worth the personal tour versus the mass group guides we were passing.

What an absolutely delightful morning I had with Sarah. Her knowledge of history ( not only of Scotland and the United Kingdom ) is vast with lovely memorable stories that made the history zing with life. Sarah is warm and personable courteous and respectful. She also has a great sense of humour which gave the tour warmth. If ( and I intend this) I return I would specifically request Sarah again and of course I recommend her most highly to any tourist with an interest in the history of this region.

If you want a truly personalized tour with an amazing guide, Sarah is your girl. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile was exciting. Sarah knew all the historical gossip of the area that you would never hear if you were on a typical group or cruise tour. Your day is adapted to YOUR desires and not necessarily preprogramed. Sarah is warm, funny, and extremely intelligent. The 7 hour tour flew by. We ended our day feeling like we made a new friend. You'll never regret it.

She tailored our tour to our family that includes two teenagers and made it loads of fun. In addition to history she took us to the best ice cream spot in town, a wonderful whiskey lunch (minus the spirits for some) and she was ready to make adjustments at any moment. We were sad to say goodbye to her!

We did two tours over 1 1/2 days and Sarah was a joy to tour with. Bright, knowledgeable, personable she knows every crook and crevice of this beautiful city. Her history knowledge with every date of every King and Queen was superb as well as knowing their back stories. But what separates guides is their ability to share the unusual that is not in the guidebooks and again her knowledge of the city shone through. We highly recommend her.

Sarah took us into the old town. First we had a good coffee, after that the tour started. Sarah is a pro and did the tour with enthusiasm and ,most important, humour. What a wonderful day we all had! Thank you so much Sarah! Sijb, Michel, Jan, Ruud

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your splendid review! It was an absolute pleasure to meet you all and show you around this marvellous city. I had such a great time with you T4, you really rock! Hartelijk dank and hopefully see you again in the future, Sarah

Sarah joined us (9 French) for an introductory walking tour of Edinburgh. Our first contact was by email and Sarah's messages were clear and very helpful. She understood our requirements and replied accordingly, making my life (as the organiser of our trip) much easier. She joined us on time at our Airbnb place. The group enjoyed her very friendly manner and her wonderful stories about the city. She spoke French whenever she could and was very patient, adapting her tour to our needs as we went along.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your wonderful review! It was a true pleasure to meet you and the group. Showing you around was great: everyone was so interested and enthusiastic; what a splendid bunch of people! Please say hi to all of them, I wish you all the best and hopefully see you again in the future, Sarah

G R E A T! Sarah was really great. Everything started with a surprise (I can't tell!). The day was with a heavy rain ( it were raining cats and dogs.) Even so, I forgot the rain hearing Sarah explaing me all about Edinburgh (monuments, people, history, a hops, and a lot of minimal details) that only a person who knows a lot of the place could tell. We spent all the evening together and the hours flown away. I recommend she if you want to visit Edinburgh differently. Thanks you very much Sarah!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the kind words Sebastian and it was a pleasure to show you around! I'm so glad you enjoyed the tour despite the terrible weather (you are a hero!). Enjoy your romantic trip to London with your wife and hopefully see you both in Scotland in the future! All the best, Sarah
