Absolutely fantastic! Stuart made this tour come alive. Great historical information about Edinburgh.
Very interesting. Learned lots of things about Edinburgh we never would have known!
Thoroughly engaging stories and a unique insight into the history of Edinburgh. Thanks Stuart for a most entertaining and educational tour. You really know your stuff!
Stuart is a colorful character who knows how to spin a tale or two. We all enjoyed our tour even with some rain. The others in the group thanked me for recommending this tour.
I would recommend this walking tour-most informative and great insights into Edinburgh history. Well worth the price.
Outstanding, eclectic, quirky. Stuart is a gem. Lots of history, anecdotes, legends, and stories from a true Edinburgh native. His energy is astounding. Loved the experience. Would go again if back in Scotland.
Stuart did a great job, we did this tour the day we arrived and it really helped us get our bearings!
Stuart was funny, warm and very knowledgeable about the Edinburgh past and present. The walk with him is the best way how orientate yourself in the city - and get a few juicy stories as a bonus :
Exceptional tour by Stuart Usher. Have your questions ready as this tour guide knows his Edinburgh history.
I signed up for a group tour and was lucky enough to have this dear man be my personal guide for three hours. We had a wonderful afternoon talking about Scottish history, his long family history, ending up at the Art Museum where he taught me something about Renaissance Art I had not known. A very charming, engaging, witty, and knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend his tour. Thank you, Mr. Usher. You were the highlight of my Edinburgh stay!
Stuart Usher is a treasure. His family goes way back in Scotland and he was chock-full of stories about the Edinburgh area that we had not heard in two previous trips there. What a delightful tour. You won't be disappointed.
This was a fantastic way to start our week in Scotland and Edinburgh!! Stuart is a fantastic tour guide and story teller! He weaved in history of Scotland and Edinburgh and made the relevant connections to the sites we were seeing! He's a terrific guide and provided a leisurely stroll through the city giving us an outstanding base of knowledge upon which to build upon for the rest of our week in Edinburgh and the surrounding countryside!! This tour is highly recommended!!
Excellent walking tour, Stuart's knowledge of Edinburgh and his stories were amazing. I would recommend this tour for anyone wanting an in depth history of Edinburgh.
Stuart was very knowledgeable. There were great stories about the history of Scotland, and the walking tour was very enjoyable.
I highly recommend this walking tour, and especially the tour guide. Stuart is very knowledgeable and passionate about the beautiful city of Edinburgh. He is well versed in the history, culture and architecture of the city. He welcomes questions about Edinburgh and Scotland in general. Do yourself a favor and give this tour a try.
Stuart was a very friendly and gentle guide and took his time to explain in detail some history of Scotland as well as Edinburgh. Book this tour first before heading out!
Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to communicate in an informative and amusing fashion.
Walking tour took place in a down pour, but still was very enjoyable. It is wonderful to be with a guide who loves his city and his work

Great tour! First thing we did in Edinburgh. Stuart Usher is a very interesting character, who tells great stories filled with a lot of historical information. He showed us parts of the city we never would have found on our own! We even went to a cute historic pub for some hot chocolate or tea. I would definitely recommend this tour -- time well spent!
We enjoyed our tour with Stuart Usher. 2 adults, 2 tweens on a rainy day in Edinburgh. Stuart taught us about the city's history, old town and new town, the grassmarket, Royal Mile, St. Giles and about the city's architecture. We concluded our walking tour at the Scottish National Gallery. A nice walk.
What a great experience! Mr. Usher was a delight and a warehouse of great information. We liked the small group and personal attention...The Edinburgh tour should be a must do for anyone visiting this great city.
The walk with Mr. Usher is not be missed. We found it as memorable as the Castle, the National Gallery, or any other Edinburgh attraction.
