Much enjoyed our recent tour with Rowan. Not only was he knowledgable about his city and it’s architecture he had a good sense of humour which is always a good sign.
Not only did he take us to the more obvious places a visitor would enjoy seeing but also took us to areas off the beaten track. We much enjoyed our visit to Dr Neil’s garden located in the village of Duddingston, a botanical delight with lovely views of the adjacent loch. Open to all with no entry fee it is a delight with the added advantage it is next to the lovely 12c Duddingston Kirk.
Thanks Rowan for a memorable trip.

This was a wonderful tour around more "far reaching" sites than I wanted to walk. Rowan did a great job sharing history, architecture, and stories about his lovely city. I would highly recommend this to anyone who would like to find some of Edinburgh's more hidden areas that aren't on the regular city site seeing busses. It is wonderful that Rowan and his brother will personalize your tour for your needs. I will be using Mini Mack Tours again when I return to Edinburgh in 6 months to see more of this beautiful city.

Had a fantastic 2 hour tour with Andy in his Mini Cooper. Smashing bloke, very personable and knowledgeable for a start. Took us around some great “ off the beaten track” gems in the comfort of his Mini Cooper. I’m 6’3” and was slightly concerned beforehand would I enjoy 2 hours in it, but fear not, it’s like a tardis, loads of room for us big lads.

We managed to grab some amazing views of the city and some history thrown in too. Far better than a bus tour in my opinion.

Collected us from the hotel on time and dropped us back to wherever we wanted.

A sound guy and we wish Andy all the best.

We just came back from an amazing morning with Andy seeing and hearing about all the beautiful sights in Edinburgh. Being in the mini was a lot of fun and enabled us to get to areas we wouldn’t have been able to see otherwise. Andy is extremely knowledgeable, being born and raised here. Super friendly, can’t wait to come back and try his other tours !!

After a hiccup in our booking, all my fault, Rowan was with us within 30 minutes. This was outstanding customer service. My Aussie friend, with one day to spend in Scotland, was able to see the sights in style and have a fun and informative tour. Rowan was charming, genuine, enthusiastic and a perfect host to Edinburgh. Great value for money, I would highly recommend you give MiniMack a go.

Unfortunately the streets near Arthur's Seat and Parliament were blocked off the afternoon of our tour, but Rowan made the best of it and drove us in the Red Rocket to South Queensferry instead. We also went to Dean Village and finally were able to get to Calton Hill. Rowan is very knowledgeable and personable. At the end of the tour he gave us a map with recommended sites and restaurants. I highly recommend taking this tour.

Its a pain when some of the roads are closed, but there is always something else cool to see in the city. Glad you enjoyed it. Cheers Rowan.

Hi! This two hour tour was such a wonderful experience and I believe it is due to Rowan's love for his country. He was so kind too. It was great to see the city with someone who is a native. We definitely recommend and totally worth it.

Thanks to Andy for a great 2 hour tour of the city. This was a great way to see all the main sights and some of the lesser known ones, that we would never have found on our own. Being a personal tour gives you the freedom to spend more or less time at certain locations and is a lot more interactive compared to a group tour. We really got a feel of the city and even went away with some great recommendations of where to go during the rest of our visit.

My daughter and me toured with Andy. He showed us everything that one should see while in Edinburgh. Witty and informative. I recommend you take this tour. I don't know that we would've seen as much had we not.
