  • Absolutely brilliant. Richard was engaging and entertaining. The tour was a joy from start to finish. It kept a 12 year old boy’s attention for its entire duration and I was only disappointed that the 3 hours seemed to end so quickly. I’d highly recommend this to tour to anyone.
  • A must do in Edinburgh ! We had a wonderful time with this guided tour. Very interesting information, great path and most important an upmost friendly guide. If you look for a way to understand Edinburgh and its most famous figures, there is no way around that tour ! Thanks again !!
  • My wife and I had a wonderful tour of Edinburgh by Stuart Usher. I don't think there is anything he does not know about this beautiful and interesting city. He took us places where only a real native who cares about the culture and city would know about. We learned so much in the three hour tour about the history and famous residents we could not remember it all...but we did take the time to capture some nice photos. No, Stuart is not a relative...just an honest review of a great time. John and Kathy Steinbauer Plantation, FL
  • What a fantastic afternoon! I would like to thank you, Stuart for the fun and informative tour around old Edinburgh. You certainly know a lot about the history of this beautiful part of the world. Make sure you bring your comfy shoes folks as Edinburgh is very hilly.
  • We had a lovely tour with Stuart Usher who showed us many aspects and secrets of Edinburgh's history and culture. He is a lovely man and his commentary was always interesting and really good-humoured with lots of little stories and anecdotes. His background as grandson of the people who donated the Usher Hall and many other buildings to Edinburgh was so dramatic and interesting to hear about. On our tour, we were the only tourists and we had Stuart to ourselves for three hours. Fabulous value and a must-see!
