We can only praise and recommend Alexander so much. We spent four hours in his company this morning as we were given the most comprehensive, professional, warm and funny tour of Edinburgh. If you wish to get full value for money and be in the company of someone, who is wasted as a tour guide, then please look no further.
Taken to some lesser known attractions, looked affer, given a vast amount of knowledge and history of Edinburgh and Scotland.
We can only recommend and would definitely use again when we return.
Many thanks.

Had a wonderful afternoon touring Edinburgh with Alexandre. From planning the tour to completion of the tour Alexandre was polite, knowledgeable and accommodating. We made a few adjustments to his usual itinerary and we saw so much more of Edinburgh than we would have seen on our own. From well known monuments to out of the way streets (news) we totally enjoyed our tour.

Wonderful half day tour of Edinburgh- Alexander was extremely knowledgeable and we felt that we really got a very good understanding of the somewhat complicated history of the Scots and this area. The vehicle was immaculate and very comfortable. It is plain to see either our guide has a history degree or is just extremely well read on the subject. Alexander still made it fun however and we would certainly highly recommend this tour!!

Hi Cheri Thank you so much for your kind words! It was my pleasure to show you Edinburgh and take you through the fascinating history and historic sites of the city. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Scotland and driving on the 'correct' side of the road in the north was easy going ;-) See you all again one day I hope. Alexander

If you do one thing in Edinburgh then make sure it’s a tour with Alexander! We had the most amazing morning touring this beautiful city in the comfort of a spotless Mercedes minivan. Our party of 5 ranged from ages 18 to 82 and our time was equally enjoyed by all. Lots of interesting information, humour, history, discussion and sightseeing. We even managed to squeeze in a cake, coffee, and comfort stop! Highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a bespoke, private tour. Thank you Alexander, we had a ball, it was certainly the highlight of our trip to Scotland.

An excellent tour. I booked this with my Mum who has limited mobility and it was a great way to see the highlights of Edinburgh in comfort and without too much walking. Alexander was friendly and helpful, keen to ensure we both got the most out of the experience. He is a knowledgeable guide with lots of interesting and fun facts about the places he showed us in Edinburgh. A really enjoyable afternoon.

Alexander has a fantastic knowledge of his own city. His van is immaculate and spotless. After being picked up from our accommodation he asked if there was anywhere we especially would like to see and my wife wanted to see the Britannia, which we did. I can thoroughly recommend his tour to anyone who wants to see the city from the comfort of an armchair. You also get to see the odd nooks and crannies you might miss on your own.

Sandy was an awesome and knowledgeable guide. We only had a short time in Edinburgh and he made our visit unforgettable. We had an issue with reminder of our Scotland trip to Inverness and he went out of his way to help us resolve our issue. He saved our trip.

Sandy was such an interesting and knowledgable guide. Although our trip was quite short we packed so much into the time we had. We will definitely do another tour on our next trip to Edinburgh. Would highly recommend this tour. Fun trip.
See you again Sandy. All the best.

Alexander gave us the perfect introduction to the city and enough history for us to feel much more grounded when we explored on our own the next day. Also covered more sites in one morning than we could possibly have done in our short time. At the end he took us to a small local pub on the water which was just perfect and left us close enough to walk to the Yacht Britannia to continue our day.
