We had a great tour. Peter's knowledge of his city, its history and legends is extraordinary. He's great at avoiding the crowds and seeking out interesting sites and stories off the beaten track. A lovely man and a very worthwhile tour.

We thought we knew Edinburgh pretty well having stayed here on numerous occasions. However, our guide Peter's knowledge and enthusiasm for the history of the city provided a greater understanding how Edinburgh has arrived at what it is today. We visited parts of old & new town that we have never seen before. In summary it was a superb walk... More

Having been to Edinburgh many times before, expectations were for a few tidbits and lots of fodder. Quite the contrary, Peter delivered huge amounts of new insight that put a wonderful light on Edinburgh and impressed a full time skeptic traveler like myself. Bravo! Well done. Strongly recommended for anyone who wants to learn from a real local who has... More

I went on a group tour led by Peter. It was very enjoyable and informative. We stared in the Old Town and ended in The New Town. Even though I had been to Edinburgh before, I learned a lot from Peter's stories.

Really enjoyed this tour! Definitely worth doing when you first get to Edinburgh. It helps you get your bearings and understand the history of the city. Just make sure you have enough time because it is two and a half hours. Our guide Peter was fantastic. He was incredibly informative and gave us insights in to the lives of the... More

We booked this tour through the Fringe festival site and had a wonderful tour guide, Peter, who took us through both old and new Edinburgh. He was a great storyteller and historian with a true love for this city. I would highly recommend this tour or any others that Peter leads!

We booked a private 2.5 hour walking tour with Peter for our first full day in Edinburgh, but the time flew by. We started off in the Old Town section of Edinburgh and made our way through the Old and then the New Town parts of the city. Peter was extremely knowledgeable. We learned so much about how people lived... More

In one afternoon we learned so much about Edinburgh's history, culture and hidden gems. Our guide, Peter was knowledgeable, entertaining and flexible as he customized the tour to meet our interests. This is the best way to discover a city, by spending an afternoon with an excellent local guide in a small group setting.

We took the tour yesterday with Peter. Originally we had booked with someone else, but due to an unexpected occurrence had asked Peter to take his place. Peter happily took over and gave us a wonderful experience. The tour started at Edinburgh Castle. We learned a lot about that and many other interesting information as we toured Old Town seeing...
