Ok, dear reader, did you notice that Andy has Excellent scores on TripAdvisor, and only Excellent scores, at least as of this writing? There are many reasons for those scores and the accompanying write-ups. My wife and had a great day with Andy recently on our first day in Scotland.

I live in the city but my mum and her friend were coming over for a weekend. Time was limited and I wanted to make the most of every opportunity to share this beautiful, historical city. Andy picked us up and brought us to lots of Edinburgh's gems, sharing nuggets of information with us at each stop. He was interesting,... More

We lucked into Andy during our hotel check-in when I remarked to the front desk about a less than satisfactory tour we'd taken in London. The hotel suggested Edinburgh Cab Tours, so after a few minutes of on-line research we asked them to check availability. Fortunately, Andy was available the next day. He arrived promptly at 9:00AM and for the... More

First rare tour! I took my mother who had visited Edinburghmany times. Even she was taken to places she had never visited and learned a lot of new information. Andy is very knowledgeable and a very friendly guide, making us feel very confortable. I would thoroughly recommned Andy as an alternative to larger bus tours.
