Edinburgh Castle to Arthur's Seat Tour: Private & Custom

I am writing to you about the wonderful tour I had with Gwen this past Saturday in Edinburgh. As a long time resident of the city she was very knowledgeable and had lots of information to share about all the sites she and I visited. She accommodated all that I wanted to see and then some. She even recommended a great restaurant for after the tour. I would highly recommend the custom tour with Gwen and give it five stars.

A final resting place

Gwen was a fabulous guide! From booking through to the tour, her communication was top notch. She offered so much great information about the city before we even arrived. When we met up for our tour of Greyfriars Kirkyard, she was energetic and friendly - her wealth of knowledge is astonishing and she shared so much fascinating information with us. We had such a good time listening to the stories and learning from Gwen. Highly recommend any time you can book with her - you will not be disappointed.

Gwen was absolutely delightful as our guide in Edinburgh. She went above and beyond showing us sites and giving detailed background on everywhere we went in Edinburgh. We have used Tours by Locals extensively and she is definitely in our top three guides. She was flexible and gave us a great package of information to use on our continued visit in Edinburgh. We can recommend Gwen without reservation and someone you should use while in the city.

Gwen was enormously enthusiastic about all things Scottish. I told her I want to come back in my next life as her - Gwen's energy was captivating and lively. Thank you Gwen for your tour of Edinburgh.
