I cannot say enough about this company!! This was our second tour with them. First in London with Stephen the owner who is SO involved and truly cares about his business. I am a pop culture junkie and he made an entire tour up for me! Andrew in Edinburgh was the same. Tell them what your interests are and they will go above and beyond to give you the history of the locations but also make it special for your interests! As someone with chronic illnesses I appreciated that they checked with me ahead of time to let me know there would be steep hills and stairs and offered to hire a car if I needed it (I didnt). I appreciated tips on what to expect, how to dress etc. The castle is functional and can be busy in summer months but the line to get tickets wasnt bc we got loads of history while we waited in line! Exploring the castle at our own pace was lovely. There were castle guides with MASSIVE groups, it was so nice to be off on our own to really take it all in. Lunch after was lovely. It was nice to hear Andy's personal family history rather than just the stories off the plaques. We got so many tips on places to eat etc! I will be hiring them again when we come back in the fall with our extended family... Because, we are getting married at the Castle!!! Thank you so much Andy and Stephen. You are far too overqualified hahaha but I appreciate that you do this out of love for your cites!! See you soon!!!

Thanks so much for your kind review. It was so nice to meet someone so enthusastic as to allow us to create personalised tours. It was a real pleasure to meet you and I know Andy feels the same. Can't wait to meet you again when you return for your big day. Congratulations :-) And thanks for touring with us at Ye Olde England Tours.
