    Spending the day with Alexander on a private tour of Edinburgh was like visiting a new city with a wonderful family friend. Alexander met us at our hotel promptly in his spotless van and we were off and running. We started with an overview of the city at Calton Hill. We were immediately impressed with his knowledge of the city, as he pointed out key landmarks and we talked about how we wanted to spend our day.

    Our host Alexander was very flexible and adapted the tour according to our requests and the weather. He had a deep knowledge of routes and destinations and knew exactly when to explain or introduce facts or curiosities about the Scottish history. Alexander went above and beyond to provide us with the most original experiences and made us feel trully welcome.

    We had a fabulous time touring Glasgow from Edinburgh. It was our first time to see Glasgow and our tour guide, Sean, made it a fantastic experience. I was with my husband and 2 kids and Sean was flexible enough to allow us to create an itinerary catered for kids, as we went along. He was also patient in answering my kids’ questions and listening to their stories, even on dinosaurs haha. He also explained a lot about the culture and history of Edinburgh and Glasgow, which was very helpful for us. Sean let us take our own pace, the van was very clean. He was on time in picking us up and Alexander even saw us off. They are very hands-on. Highly recommended! Thank you so much!

    If you do one thing in Edinburgh then make sure it’s a tour with Alexander! We had the most amazing morning touring this beautiful city in the comfort of a spotless Mercedes minivan. Our party of 5 ranged from ages 18 to 82 and our time was equally enjoyed by all. Lots of interesting information, humour, history, discussion and sightseeing. We even managed to squeeze in a cake, coffee, and comfort stop! Highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a bespoke, private tour. Thank you Alexander, we had a ball, it was certainly the highlight of our trip to Scotland.

    We had a superb & wonderful experience. Alexander, our tour guide, enthralled us with the abundant history of Scotland which made us appreciate & love it more… This is a highly recommended tour agency specially if you’re travelling with a little one. Indeed, a tour that we will remember in our lifetime!

    We had a great day! Sean was an excellent tour guide. Saw a little bit of everything. First we hit a few of the Outlander filming sites, then we were off to St. Andrews. Had a nice lunch in the club house where after we had some time to shop, touch the North Sea and see the golf museum. Next we enjoyed some delicious gin and whisky tasting, not Sean…he was driving. And we ended our trip back to Edinburgh driving along the coast stopping at some quaint fishing villages. What a great way to experience Scotland outside of Edinburgh. Highly recommend this trip.

    We spent several days with Experienced Tours in Edinburgh and then in London and had an excellent experience. Alexander was extremely helpful with planning the itinerary. I was traveling with my mom who has some mobility issues, and all of our tour guides were very accommodating.  David was wonderful; we learned so much and really enjoyed our time with him. All of the vans were comfortable and spotless and all of our guides were an absolute pleasure.

    I had less than a day to see as much as possible of Edinburgh and could not have been in more capable hands. Alexander was professional, so easy to get along with and seemed to have endless knowledge, not only about this beautiful city, but included many anecdotal pieces of information that made this a perfect tour for me.

    Wonderful half day tour of Edinburgh- Alexander was extremely knowledgeable and we felt that we really got a very good understanding of the somewhat complicated history of the Scots and this area. The vehicle was immaculate and very comfortable. It is plain to see either our guide has a history degree or is just extremely well read on the subject. Alexander still made it fun however and we would certainly highly recommend this tour!

    We were on limited time and decided the best way to see the sights would be by private van. We were not disappointed! I requested a customization to a tour and Alexander was happy to accommodate. Midhope Castle, Culrose, Falkland Palace and St Andrews. Extremely knowledgeable about Scottish history and the Outlander film locations. Highly recommend!

    Alexander has a fantastic knowledge of his own city. His van is immaculate and spotless. After being picked up from our accommodation he asked if there was anywhere we especially would like to see and my wife wanted to see the Britannia, which we did. I can thoroughly recommend his tour to anyone who wants to see the city from the comfort of an armchair. You also get to see the odd nooks and crannies you might miss on your own.

    Great way to explore Edinburgh. We booked a full day private tour for our family (2 adults plus 10yr old). Alexander was a great host, very friendly and knowledgeable and planned the day based on our input. Fantastic way to explore the city and surrounding areas in a clean and comfortable van (and a welcome break from walking everywhere). Alexander kindly offered us tips for the remainder of our trip to Scotland, and I would highly recommend this company for a high quality experience.

    We can only praise and recommend Alexander so much. We spent four hours in his company this morning as we were given the most comprehensive, professional, warm and funny tour of Edinburgh.

He aided us with laundry drop off/pick up too. The car was spotless as he washed and vacuumed it every evening.

    The history tour began from the moment I entered the van until we returned home, including Edinburgh and sites along the many miles traveled.
