Amazing!!!

Our guide Peter was truly wonderful. From Greyfriars kirkyard to the royal mile to the center of New Town then all the way to Edinburgh castle, Peter showed us everything Edinburgh has to offer. He was knowledgeable, entertaining, but above all passionate about this great city. We learned a great deal from him and would highly recommend him to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

The tour was very interesting, informative and funny! Just perfect!

Our group had a great time during the tour and we kept remembering that things Peter had told us during the tour for the rest of our stay. It was very informative but presented in a way that you could remember the information, stories and events. I can only recommend the tour with Peter Hamilton, it was personalised especially for us, he had done research on Switzerland to draw comparisons, e.g. feet, yards, miles vs. meters, kilometers, and many more things. We had told him what we were interested in and he came up with a great tour that met our interests and answered our questions. We saw things on this tour, we would not have known existed. I'd book the tour again without hesitation. It's worth it!
