Irene is a very good guide. She knows very well the history , information. Also very nice and polite
Jenny was incredible- very thoughtful and knowledgeable about Scottish history and tradition but also very personable and made us immediately feel comfortable and at home. We threw tons of questions at her which she answered with such impressive knowledge of history and enthusiasm. We had an amazing time with her and are so lucky to have been with her today!
Jenny was knowledgeable and warm. Provided detailed pertinent background. This was so important in understanding the history, but also useful for discussions about future trends in Edinburgh and Scotland in general.
