What people are saying about 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!

Edinburgh Uncovered Private 3-Hour Group Tour Reviewed by Marie-Louise, 03/04/2016

Friendly, honest, informative tour, without theatrics

Truly one of the most enjoyable tours I have participated in. The group was small (five people - says never more than 10), the guide a local (member of the Usher family, who have lived in Edinburgh for several generations, at least, and so very knowledgeable. The two other tours I had in Edinburgh were led by foreigners, who focused on acting and theatrics to tell stories, as opposed to just relating facts and information. Further, the Usher's will adjust their tour based upon the needs and desires of their participants, as opposed to a canned script. Recommend the Usher's tour to anyone truly interested in learning about Edinburgh in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. A+ in my book!

Edinburgh: 3-Hour Guided Walking Tour Reviewed by Michael, 25/02/2018

Fun and informative walking tour of Edinburgh

I had a great time exploring Edinburgh with my private guide Rafael. Rafael was great in replying to my messages about meeting point and itinerary before the tour, and we had no troubles meeting on the day. We walked around Edinburgh for over 3 hours, exploring the old town and all the important sights. Rafael was very personable and fun to chat to, and was able to tailor the experience to what I wanted to see. He was able to mix both historical information with entertaining stories, so it was never boring and gave me a good overview of the city. Overall I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Edinburgh.

Excellent. Very informative, great comeraderie.

Truly enjoyed the day. Booked an eight hour walking tour focusing on the historical aspects of Scotland, starting out at the Edinburgh Castle, walking the Royal Mile and the Palace, with other highlights pointed out and discussed. Enjoyed a great lunch with our Guide, Doug, as well as a end of tour cocktail. Most enjoyable way of touring, flexible, personal and most of all, informative. Was like touring with a member of the family, who was very knowledgeable about Scotland, Edinburgh and all the activities we visited. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Well Done.

Private Customizable Edinburgh Tour With a Local Reviewed by Anonymous, 08/09/2019

Perfectly tailored to our expectations...

Our guide, Gordon, was personable, funny and interesting and knew an incredible amount about the history of Edinburgh and Scotland. He started by asking us exactly what we hoped to get out of the tour and adapted as required. We were full of questions and he always knew the answers as well as having many interesting or amusing anecdotes that made the tour more interesting than being told a stream of dates and facts. We had a tremendous time and couldn't have asked for a better guide. Thanks Gordon!
