We really enjoyed our walking tour with Peter. He picked us up in New Town at the flat we had rented and then walked us around new town, old town, grass market and catered the tour to our interests and tastes. He was informative and a pleasure to talk with during our tour. He was also very prompt in getting... More

We booked a private tour with Peter and really pleased we did so. If you love history then definitely try this. Peter met us in our hotel reception and we discussed what the tour would involve. We saw many things that we wouldn't have seen just wandering around ourselves and all the historical facts were fascinating. This tour is suitable... More

Peter took the four of us on an excellent guided tour through Edinburgh. He was funny, entertaining and informative the whole way. He even adapted the tour to fit into what we had previously seen and were planning to do so we didn't receive the same information twice. Would highly recommend!

My wife and I had Peter guide us on two consecutive morning tours around Edinburgh. We were met at our Hotel promptly and enjoyed every minute of both days, as we had a basis of what we wanted to see, but actually made adjustments as we went along. I have been on several walks in other European cities, and these... More

We really loved our private 'tale of two towns' tour with Peter. It is an excellent value for your money, and Peter is such a knowledgable and kind tour guide! He met us in the reception of our hotel, and begain our two hour walking tour from there. Peter immersed us in the history of the city by taking us... More

I have just been to Edinburgh on a weekend away with 5 girlfriends. after much deliberation I chose a walking tour guide company who were incredibly helpful - however the date I gave them was Friday the 13th of February and not March so I had to look again! Fortunately I came across Peter at Saints and Sinners! He arranged... More

Having only three days in Edinburgh, I knew it was essential to hire a guide. After reading reviews both here and on Toursbylocals.com , it looked as though Peter was the man for the job. Well...was he ever! My friend and I spent a lovely, sunny 7 hours with Peter exploring the most beautiful and friendly city of Edinburgh. Without... More
