Our family had so much fun with Alexander during our stay in Edinburgh. He is super personable, very knowledgeable on all things Scottish, and quite a bit of a jokester. I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting Scotland. This was our first time here, but I think even someone who has been to Scotland before can learn something new from Alexander.

Alexander and TBL accommodated my last minute request and I couldn't be happier with my 4 hour introduction to Edinburgh. Without hesitation I recommend this experience.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Laura. Thanks for your feedback! It was lovely to meet you and show you Edinburgh. I hope you continue to enjoy the rest of your time in Scotland. Alexander

2 couples engaged Alexander for our guided tour; if we could give 10 stars instead of 5 we would. His performance and our experience was exceptional. Criteria important to us included: comfortable traveling vehicle for 8+ hours; trusted, open willingness to customize the itinerary to our interests; and not being rushed. We had many direct email exchanges to define itinerary and he was professional, prompt in response and flexible. This guide experience was differentiated, outstanding and worth every $$$!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Allan, thanks for your kind words and great review! It was a pleasure to meet you all yesterday and to tour around the beautiful National Park and up to Stirling Castle. I hope you enjoy the rest of your European adventure! Until next time, Sláinte! Alexander

Date: Jun 5/19

We learned a lot about Scottish history and Edinburgh's weather (it was a rainy day!). Alexander was a great guide, who listened to us and adjusted our tour to make sure we saw what really interested us (our luncheon in the oldest operating pub in Scotland was definitely a highlight). It was a whirlwind day (and our first port stop in Scotland), but I'm glad we did it. I hope to tour again with Alexander when I return to Edinburgh for business this fall.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kathy Thank you very much for your booking and feedback. It was really great to meet Hal and yourself and show you our fantastic capital city last week. I look forward to meeting you again later this year. Sláinte, Alexander

Alexander was our most professional and polished tour guide. He greeted us in a kilt, the start of a really excellent tour. He knew his facts and the history we wanted to hear, and he was articulate in his presentation. He knew his way around the city and his personality added fun to the day. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Raylene. Thank you so much for your feedback! It was really great to meet you all and show you a wee corner of our fantastic country. I hope the rest of your trip went well and look forward to meeting you all again one day. Kind regards, Alexander.

This was an excellent tour made even better by our guide, Alexander. He is well versed in the history of the castles and all the attractions we visited. We had a great day getting to see the Scottish countryside. This is a first class operation. Would highly recommend for anyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael Thank you for your review of my service. It was a pleasure to meet you both last week as we explored the beautiful Stirling and Loch Lomond areas. I was glad that you got to try freshly caught Wild Haggis, a speciality of the region ;-) I hope the rest of your journey went smoothly. Kind regards, Alexander

We had a great time with Alexander visiting St. Andrews and Fife. He was knowledgeable about the area and answered all questions to the best of his ability. He went in with us to the historic sites and gave us more in-depth information. He was patient with us as we wanted to make changes to the itinerary. We highly enjoyed his company on our day long trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Daniel, Thank you so much for your review and feedback. It was great to meet your family and visit the fantastic Kingdom of Fife. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Edinburgh. Please pass on my best wishes to the family. Sláinte, Alexander

Alexander was more than we hoped for with the second excellent tour guide on our trip. He was kind to us and passionate about his knowledge of Scotland making us eager to learn more and appreciate the history. He took us to places we would never have known about yet gave us time to enjoy places we wanted to see. Can't wait to come back with my children so Alexander can create the love of their heritage with them. Thank you and Blessings

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Marlene. Thank you so much for choosing to tour with me and for your feedback. It was my pleasure to tour with you and explore our great country. I hope to meet you and your family again. Alexander
