Irene was an amazing guide. You are lucky to have her on your team. My sister and I did the Old Town tour and the New Town tour with her. She is incredibly knowledgeable and a great teacher. It was obvious she is very passionate about the subject matter. Even though I had been to Edinburgh several times and have read a lot of history, Irene made the tour a terrific experience as she quickly pivoted to provide deeper insights and discussion that went beyond what my sister and I already knew. On our second tour, she surprised us with a printout of an article we had discussed on the first tour. It was very thoughtful, and we loved having "homework." She is a genuinely lovely person and we really enjoyed chatting with her. Expert in her field and a tremendous teacher/guide. Thank you.
Jenny was terrific! Very knowledgeable and friendly. She took us to just the right spot for photos. The depth and breadth of her knowledge was amazing and she kept us interested and engaged for the full tour!
