My family and I went on Victor Aitken’s walking tour of Edinburgh today, it was so interesting that we spent 4 hours with him! That’s a record for our family! Since it was only the 3 of us, he asked us questions about our interests to customize our tour and as we asked questions during, he continued to tailor it throughout our walk. He’s knows the city well and has a wealth of knowledge. Not only did we get a great history lesson, it really was a great walk. I hope to be able to visit again and be able to take another tour with him!

I thoroughly enjoyed a friendly and informative tour with our guide Vic Aitken. Extremely interesting and Vic obviously has an extensive knowledge of Edinburgh. I would recommend this tour to others.

The tour guide was very friendly, cheerful and well informed. She provided us a thorough tour of the Royal Mile. The tour was also flexible as we could ask for specific things we might want to focus on. Highly recommended!
