Our guide Gillian was fantastic. A fascinating tour delivered with bags of enthusiasm keeping us all engaged and laughing on occasions as well as wincing at some of the dreadful things that’s happened in the 1700s! We were two Middle agers and two twenty somethings and Gillian got it spot on. Thank you👍

Spent the day with Will touring the city of Edinburgh. We covered old town in the morning and new town after lunch. Had been to the city many times before, but had never taken tour. Found the day fascinating. Learned a lot about the history of Edinburgh, but also about what it is like to live there now. Will did a great job. Was a pleasure spending day with him. Highly recommend.
