Dear Nicole Thank you so much for your marvellous Review. You can say that again about the rotten weather., Phew! I also enjoyed the bracing walks up Calton Hill and the good company of your staff. We all learnt a lot and had a good laugh at the same time. Nicole, you are more than welcome to contact us again for more walks with your excellent and cheerful staff. Best wishes Stuart U

Dear Chaylee Many thanks for your superlative Review of our most enjoyable Tour together. I am also delighted that your 16 yo also really enjoyed it. You and Jack must be so proud of your three most beautiful daughters. You got a bit cold but actually you can thank your lucky stars that it was not at all cold for this time of year in Edinburgh! I very much enjoyed ALL your companies and the searching questions you ALL asked. You really must come again to Edinburgh. Best wishes Stuart U.
