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

Peter is incredibly knowledgable about Edinburgh and it's wonderful Castle! Our group of 3 (a 70 yr old, me - a 61 yr and a 34 yr old - all women) hired Peter to take us on his Edinburgh Old & New tour. It was a misting, cool morning Sunday morning when we met him at the entrance to Edinburgh... More

Peter Hamilton's tour of Edinburgh Old and New was absolutely perfect for our group of 3 adults and 4 teens. The 2.5 hour tour was the perfect length and speed. Peter is a wonderful guide with interesting stories, legends, anecdotes and facts that kept everyone's interest. Peter is charming, entertaining, and incredibly informed, and we highly recommend any tour with... More

A fantastic tour of Edinburgh. We were a multigenerational family group of 6 - had only an afternoon and wanted to see as much as possible. Peter was the perfect answer. From his prompt response to my first inquiry, his help in designing the perfect tour for us to the tour itself - everything was amazing. He met us outside... More

We arrived in Edinburgh early afternoon after a train journey from Ely, Cambs. An hour later we were welcomed by a hearty, cheerful, kilted gentleman of a certain age and given an introduction to the city where we were to spend the next four days. For two hours we were kept entertained in an informative way about the history, culture... More

We scheduled a private walking tour with Peter on the first full day of our stay in Edinburgh, and it was a great experience. We told him our general interests ahead of time, and he made sure to include everything (and more!) that we were curious about. We learned loads of great stuff. The tour was a fun introduction to...

Peter was as good as advertised. He entertained the kids and taught us a lot about Edinburgh and its history.

Becoming hooked on city guides, the quality of this one was no exception. Peter was a bundle of joy and full of interesting facts. I'm Scottish ( alright I'm from Glasgow) and into history, so I thought I knew my stuff, and like most good talks I knew about 90% . the extra 10% that Peter brought out was well... More
