This is where the Saints & Sinners tour guides come in, they bring Edinburgh Alive!!

This was an interesting look at old and new Edinburgh by Peter, and I think it would be useful both for new and repeat visitors to Edinburgh. The information was given in a friendly and lively way by this proud Scottish man and it made us want to return back to the city and explore again.

Went on a lovely 2hr walking tour (Edinburgh – A Tale of Two Towns) around the centre of Edinburgh which consisted of me, the tour guide & his colleague who was looking on (I’m terrible with names. So sorry.). Great for those who already know Edinburgh & Scotland. Many an 'Ah!' moment as things clicked into place & I learnt... More

We booked our tour with Peter in the last minute in Edinburgh, realizing that we would never be able to put the magnificent city’s history into perspective without some help. We met Peter on a sunny (yes sunny!) and warm day in Edinburgh and spent the MOST delightful four hours with him. His knowledge of Scottish history is encyclopedic but... More

My wife and I were able to allot only two days in Edinburgh so we wanted to make the most of our time rather than randomly ticking off the noted tourist highlights. Peter was recommended by our hotel concierge. We were not sorry. Peter rapidly determined what our interests and our level of prior knowledge, and adjusted his "Old Town-New... More

My family (Me, DH, and 18 yo twin boys) went on Peter's walking tour of Edinburgh (Old and New Town) July 4th, 2014. Before this trip, I had never booked a private tour guide. I had been to Edinburgh once before, but I felt like I was missing a lot touring it on my own. Peter's tour was everything I... More

Peter was recommended by a client of mine, and we were not disappointed! We had a lovely tour with him of both Edinburgh Castle and Old Town. He was extremely knowledgeable but presented the history of his city in a very interesting way. The time flew by! It's such a beautiful city, made even more special by the history Peter... More
