BOOK EDINBURGHíS OLD TOWN HISTORY TOUR Greyfriars Kirk
“Robert didn't just exceed our expectations, he smashed through them with huge amounts of information delivered through factual anecdotes laced with good humour. Two hours flew by, and our new appreciation for Edinburgh is only topped by our respect for Robert. I defy anyone to remain un-informed by this master-educator.” Jonesey01 - TripAdvisor review - 1/10/17

Private Tour 

“First of all regardless of what I write I will not be able to share how much my family enjoyed this tour. I truly wished I booked more time with Robert, he was the best! My family booked a private tour so our children would have time to focus and interact with Robert. We wanted them to learn about the unique history of Edinburgh and the entire experience was without parallel… Overall, I hung on every word Robert said. I will be contacting him again, he has been the best tour guide we have had in years.” CircleMajik- TripAdvisor review - 2/6/2018

“I was on a tour with Robert last Saturday. It was so wonderful because he's such a fantastic tour guide with such a profound knowledge of the history. It was a great joy to listen to the stories about the Old Town. The visual aids he uses are a perfect addition to them and as you see the 'then and now' you get a better idea of what the Old Town must have been like. Robert is so friendly and patient and has a good sense of humour. His enthusiasm is contagious but never ever boring. I highly recommend this tour because I enjoyed every minute of it.”
