Our walking tour of Edinburgh with Hugh was fantastic! We felt we were given “a key” to the city. Thank you.
My tour with Terry was excellent! She is a university lecturer in history and she provided a comprehensive, very detailed explanation of the many Edinburgh historical sites we visited during our three-hour custom tour. I highly recommend Terry and this company!
As usual with Context, this was an outstanding tour. We seemingly walked the entire city (in a good way!), and I got a real "feel" for both the geography, the historical highlights, and lots of quirky local insights.
