Excellent tour. Alex is very eloquent and knowledgeable and could produce interesting facts on any subject raised, including the accuracy of fictional depictions of Scotland.
So we totally failed the Scottish history questions that our docent posed at the beginning of the tour, but he got us on track by the end of the tour! I also like that we ended the tour at the Carlton Hill, which I suspect was in direct response to the group's interest. He was fantastic.
This was our first experience with Context Tours and it was great. Our guide, was excellent. The perfect balance of information, knowledge and experience. We will use your services again.
