Paul gave us an excellent and rich lesson in Christian heritage. Through this tour, we've learned so much about the roots of reformation, the pioneers and hundreds of people who gave their lives for standing firm in the true Gospel. We also learned about how these Scottish Christians had impacted society in so many ways such as science and medicine. Also visited many places like the Scottish reformation society where many of the reformation forefathers met up. A must see if you are a Christian. If you are from a different faith, I still recommend this tour since it is very educational and it will give you a deeper understanding of christianity.

We had an wonderful tour around Edinburgh with Paul. I have been on a couple of 'Covenanter' tours aound edinburgh previously, but this tour was by far the best. Paul's knowledge is phenominal, and to have access into some of these historic buildings was very special. I would highly reccomend this tour, it has made me realise the role that christianity played in making Scotland such a great nation.

We had an extremely informative tour around key places that feature in Scotland's formative history. Paul James-Griffiths is excellent at packing a large amount of information into the two hour tour, yet amazingly i was able to absorb what was said and feel I learned more valuable history in these two hours than all my time in history class at school! It is amazing to realise the impact that Christianity has had upon Scotland from such an early stage in it's development, and the influence that this has had in bringing the world to where it is today. I highly recommend this tour for its educational, eye-opening aspects. If you want to understand Scotland's formation, its 'Reformation' and then subsequent influence on the whole world, book up a tour with Paul and Isolde. Very glad I came.

Had a great, well-spent two hours in Old Town area. Paul and Isolde were very welcoming and knowledgable in Edinburgh history. Really good to know how early Christians shaped the world we live in now and how God moves all throughout our lives. The group from Perth whose with the trip was also lovely and friendly. We visited some buildings otherwise we would not if not for the trip like the meeting place of early theologians. Thanks Paul and Isolde!
