This tour was amazing! Kasia walked us a little around where our hotel is, and gave us tips on everything Scotland (what restaurant to eat at, how to use the subway). Then she brought us more into the city center. She knew a lot about the history of the buildings and area, told us about her favorite spots and even told places to go on different days.”! She was so nice a personable.
