A thoroughly enjoyable and knowledgeable guide who customized our introduction to Edinburgh in important and impactful ways. She really listened to our father/daughter trip needs, got to know us, and tailored the experience above and beyond (and much of that began far before the tour). We specifically sought out her tour and booked it so we could be walking with her within hours of arriving in Edinburgh - it was the perfect beginning to our stay here. We highly recommend Jen!

I booked a walking tour for my toddler, tween & myself. As you can imagine, it’s quite hard to find something that interests all of us but Jen managed it! My daughter learnt more in 2 hours than she does in her school history lessons. It was perfectly tailored to us and such good fun! She really knows her history & Harry Potter if you are into that. We will definitely book Jen when we return to Edinburgh.

We wanted something different and Doug allowed us to have that. We saw some great sites, learnt a lot about the area and were able to do what we wanted to do. Doug was extremely accommodating, knowledgable and a joy to be with.

Really enjoyed the tour with Doug! He narrated the history of the City as he took me through all the locations.He was very patient and very well informed. I would highly recommend the tour

Great guide, Richard, and fantastic city with so many interesting facts and history. Highly recommended.
