Irene was extremely knowledgeable and open to questions and discussion. We found her to be interesting to listen to, as well as engaging.
Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. But the basics of Edinburgh were too spread out with a lot of time just walking in Old Town with no explanation. Fewer stops with more explanation would make the tour more informative. Otherwise, just do a hop-a-bus. We learned more points of interest on the bus.
Hugh was great! Right level of information. Provided a great overview if the old town. Dis a great job of meeting all participants’ interests. Friendlt and inviting!
