What people are saying about George Street, Edinburgh
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!
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!
We have been to Edinburgh twice before and have mainly focused on the Royal Mile along with Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace. This time we opted for the Hop on Hop Buses and bought the Grand Tour (3 tour bus companies for 1 price) so we could take 3 different routes. 2 had audio guides and 1 had a live tour guide. Fantastic decision as we saw parts of Edinburgh that were hidden to us before. Booked the tickets before the trip and it worked like a charm!
Took a 24 hour ticket and did all 3 tours in a day. This is the best way to introduce yourself to the city pointing out the highlights. Should have taken the 48 hour ticket and made more use of the Hop on Hop off option. But hey -ho, because of this tour will be back in Edinburgh to take in the attractions and actually visit more of them.
Thank you Richard for the walk and you insights in Edinburghs history, geography and gastronomic. We tried the food and the Last Drop today and it was very very good - especially the chocolate brownie at the end. One of the best I have had - and none of them was ever in a pub. Many thanks again.
