Our tour of Old Town Edinburgh was easily arranged. The tour was informative and entertaining. We would definitely do this again. Terry was a fantastic guide around Old Town Edinburgh for us. She is very personable and witty. We very much enjoyed our tour led by her and learned a great deal.
This was a fantastic day. We came away really feeling like we knew the city. Jenny was incredible. She had a wealth of knowledge about the city and its history and presented it with personality and style. We got to see not only the highlights, but also some of the off-the-beaten path spots that you only get with a tour guide like Jenny.
Jenny was a great storyteller! We really enjoyed our time with her on this tour. Thanks for making our trip more meaningful!
