We had an absolutely wonderful time spending the afternoon with Rowan in Edinburgh. He was friendly, funny and knowledgeable and obviously enjoyed sharing his insights into this gorgeous city. Highly recommended. Donna & Gary from Key West.

We are happy to pick up our clients from South Queensferry for a small surcharge as it is outside the city centre. The drop off point is always in the city centre unless you request otherwise. Thanks for the question Robyn.
