“Wonderful Experience! Like a good friend showing you around his home city!”

September 2019 was our first trip to the UK. Friends who had lived in Scotland while attending seminary had raved about Edinburgh, but we have limited mobility and I was concerned about how best to appreciate the city in our limited time. The reviews on TripAdvisor sold me on Edinburgh Cab Tours, and we had an outstanding 1/2 day tour with Andy. He was punctual and considerate, and as an Edinburgh native extremely well-informed. He customized the tour to the day (Edinburgh had some roads blocks due to a film shooting during our visit) and to our interests (I work in the financial field but never would have thought to visit Andrew Carnegie’s birth place in Dunfermline, which we enjoyed very much). Andy had entertaining, informative stories that helped us understand Edinburgh’s history in a way we wouldn’t have on our own. We will definitely use Edinburgh Cab Tours again if we return to Edinburgh, and even though we saw a lot in only four hours, I’d be likely to choose to spend an entire day touring with Andy.

December 2019 As return overseas visitors to Edinburgh we can highly recommend the private; Edinburgh Cab Tours. Andy’s professionalism, communication and punctuality make for a wonderful experience. Whether it be City Centre Tour or Day Tours, the blend of history, fun and the modern day along with a very comfortable vehicle are top notch. This time we indulged in the Scottish Borders Tour, Outlander Tour and a Highlands Distillery Tour over three separate days, Andy’s depth of experience with some hidden gems for good measure are a delight.

We are a family of 7 and were having some difficulty finding a guide-cum-driver tour. And we found Edinburgh Cab Tours. It was a very fruitful and enjoyable experience especially with Andy by our side, always providing us with an abundance of Scottish history and Outlander filming facts and references. Throughout the journey it was very smooth, bottled water and snacks were offered, never an awkward silence, definitely worth the bang for your buck. We really appreciate it Andy! Will definitely recommend you to relatives and friends. Emir

Cannot say enough about how much Andy and his tour was the highlight of our trip! Very professional service and knowledgeable about Edinburgh and the amazing history. Definitely a must do when visiting.
Andy, our tour guide, met us in the lobby of our hotel at precisely the time he promised and carted us away in a luxurious 6 seater Mercedes. He is a charming man that has an incredible amount of knowledge of the history and the sights in Edinburgh. Our tour ended on the grounds of Edinburgh Castle and we enjoyed every minute. We came away with a ton of knowledge and appreciation about this beautiful capital city of Scotland. If you're visiting Edinburgh please start your visit with Andy as your guide for an introduction to this wonderful city. I recommend him highly!
