Review by FL Dorman, State College, Pennsylvania, Trip Advisor, Level 5 contributor : "Absolutely the best tour, hands down"
I've taken at least 10 tours in Edinburgh over the last 15 years or so. I've also toured in many other locations, and can say without doubt that THIS IS THE EDINBURGH TOUR TO TAKE! Stuart was extremely entertaining and knowledgeable. I had no idea as to his "connections" to the area...I wish I had before the tour. I can't imagine a better person to chat with, wow!

Review by, Sabrina S., Trip Advisor, Level 3 Contributor: "Amazing day!"
My husband and I booked a private walking tour with Mr. Usher and had an absolutely incredible day. From 10 AM to 6 PM, we not only explored the city and its main attractions, but listened to the most delicious historical and literary anecdotes. Stuart will tell you all about the different architectural styles that can be seen in Edinburgh, the picturesque facts behind some very curious pub's names, and stories about Queens and Kings of yore. He will also tell you about real characters that inspired literary creations and even about criminals that used to terrorize the Old Town centuries ago. If you like history, literature and are not afraid to walk, this is your tour. Mr. Usher is a gentleman that loves Edinburgh and knows pretty much everything about it, and is also the best company for a pint or a cup of tea.
