Irene was an absolutely delightful tour guide. Her knowledge of the Old City was beyond brilliant! We learned so much about the history of Scotland and Edinburgh. It was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend Context and specifically Irene to all!
Kate is a remarkable…. Encyclopedic and engaging tour guide. We really couldn’t have asked for a better guide!
Hugh was fantastic. We've done many Context tours over the years in many cities, and Hugh was one of the best we’ve had. Exemplified the style, content and manner of a great Context tour. Hard to improve.
