Ausgezeichnete Führung in einer Kleingruppe (10 Pers.) vollgepackt mit historischen Fakten und Insider-Tipps, die 3 Stunden sind regelrecht verflogen! Man bekommt nicht nur die offizielle Version der geschichtlichen Facts geboten, sondern auch die Hintergründe gespickt mit einer kleinen Prise Zynismus. Herr Richard Usher hat sich die Vornamen eines jeden Teilnehmers eingeprägt, jeden persönlich angesprochen und nach der Führung an jeden einen handschriftlich bearbeiteten Stadtplan mit Sightseeing-Tipps ausgeteilt. Die Shopping-Tipps waren ebenfalls prima, 100% made in Scotland garantiert! Kleiner Hinweis an zukünftige Teilnehmer: nicht pünktlich sondern am besten 10 Min. vor der Zeit am Treffpunkt sein, sonst verpasst man gleich den Anfang.

My adult sons and I did the tour with Mr Usher senior, it was a very good tour to orientate us to Edinburgh and he was very informative and well spoken. We had a lovely rest for a cuppa very good spot ( went back for scones the next day) He gave some recommendations of things to do and we did them. My sons thoroughly enjoyed the camera obscure illusion on the mile in old town the next day.

A lovely walk round old town of Edinburgh. The lady who took us on the walk, Alison, knew alot of history and was very friendly, 3 hours was unfortunately not enough time to enjoy all. if i come visit Edinburgh again i would definitely think about booking again. The only down side was that it was raining and cold but that didn't stop us.

Mr. Usher is an amazing guide, knows many amazing details about the history of the city, very Scottish and interested for people that is first time changes visiting the UK and Scotland, gave me recommendations about different places to visit in detail and was a great experience, super recommended!

Alison was fantastic: great story teller, putting the physical remnants of Edinburgh’s history into context w/the events that shaped the city. Please update your site to recognize that Alison may guide the tour get credit and so that clients expecting one of the Ushers aren’t disappointed.
