Keith was a great tour guide, he adapted the itinerary to meet what we wanted to do during the day and was very knowledgable about numerous areas of Scotland and their history. Would highly recommend Heart of Sctoland Tours ltd.

We were a group of 11 looking for a one day trip around Edinburgh. The balance between time in the bus and time outside is perfect. The guide was really nice and very interesting. I definitely recommand this tour.

Such a great tour. The meeting place was easy to find. The small group tours really are the way to go. They allow for more personalized and flexible tours. Our driver, Paul, was knowledge and friendly. He took us to a couple extra spots in addition to all the places in the description. It was a rainy but beautiful. The lunch spot was okay food but it was with good company. We had were given multiple photo stops. The distillery was interesting and the scotch was good. The castle was neat. We would definitely book with this company again and would definitely book with Paul again. Great guide.

The entire trip was a blast despite the rain. Alan was wonderful and extremely considerate. I was traveling with my elderly mum who is over 70 and can barely.walk but Alan was very understanding and helpful. His knowledge and the little snippets were interesting and unusual. An excellent tour - must travel by the wee bus at least once when you're in Edinburgh.

Eddie our driver was very knowledgeable and made the time fly by. This is a well priced tour and although all tours seem a bit rushed, this one seems to split the time pretty fair. Stirling castle was amazing, wish we had more rime there. All in all, worth it!
