You can just tell they both love what they do and really enjoy showing off their beautiful land to visitors!! Would absolutely do this anytime I’m back!!

          Unforgettable Day in The Highlands
          We've had so many great tour experiences during our stay in Scotland, but this had to be our favorite. It was an unforgettable day and such a good contrast to our days in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Our guide Andy was excellent. He was early to pick us up. He tailored the stops to our preferences; namely, to see Outlander sites. The stops on the tour were perfect. The duration in between was just enough to rest up for the next adventure. Lunch was great. To cap it off, Andy recommended a restaurant in Edinburgh that ended up being one of our favorite meals of the trip. This is a must-do while in Scotland.

          A Great Half-Day in Edinburgh
          Simply put, this was one of the most fun and informative guided tours we've ever had. Gareth was an amazing, clever, professional and humorous host. We did see some iconic Edinburgh sites for sure, but the lesser known, off the beaten path features were our favorite. We walked through beautiful, quiet gardens and lovely neighborhoods that most tourists never see. It was a bit of a challenge getting in and out of the Mini Cooper, but that just added to the fun and adventure! We ended the tour with a yummy included lunch at an incredible pub, a fantastic way to end the day!

          Family Visit to Edinburgh
          Our family visited Edinburgh in July and our time with Rowan and Andy was a highlight of the trip. We toured with the brothers on our first day in Edinburgh and would highly recommend their tour as a way of getting acquainted with the city. Don’t miss this tour!

          Wonderful experience!
          My family and I were only in Edinburgh for 2 days but we got to see so many different parts of Edinburgh that we wouldn't have otherwise experienced because of this tour. We went on many tours during our travels around the United Kingdom but my family all agreed that this one was our favorite. Our guide was Andy and he was very knowledgable about the city but kept the tour interesting. My 18-year-old brother didn't put his headphones in once throughout the tour, which is certainly indicative of how much we enjoyed it :)

          Best Part of Our Trip
          Ready for a real taste of Edinburgh? I can guarantee you an incredible tour full of impressive sights and local color if you choose Mini Mack Tours. Rowan and his brother Andy are experienced guides, local to the area, and full of good stories and good humor. We felt like family members instead of tourists from the States as we toured along in our cute Mini Cooper. The four hours we spent with Rowan flew by, and we will forever be grateful for him introducing us to Cullen Skink! You will love it! A great way to start your time in lovely Edinburgh.

          Superb Tour To Get To Know Edinburgh!
          Rowan was awesome! Showed up on time, was super-friendly, genuine, knowledgeable, and funny, and really gave us a sense of the city. I felt like he took us to places we wouldn’t have otherwise known about, and like I’m a lot more comfortable navigating on my own after being with him! Specifically, he knew a lot about architecture and environmental topics, which my wife and I enjoyed very much since we’re into both those things. I’ve been on tours before that seemed to drag, and this was the exact opposite of that. The time flew along and I wanted to go for another 4 hours!

          The Real Edinburgh
          If you want to learn the real history of Edinburgh this is the tour for you. You will visit different areas of the city from Old Town to New Town to the coast. Along the way you will learn what life has been like over the last 500 years. No embellishments of facts like larger tour companies offer for entertainment. Rowan was my guide. Edinburgh is his home since birth. He is personable, genuine and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend Mini Mack Tours. I look forward to returning to Scotland and taking their Highlands Tour.

          Half day Edinburgh tour in a Mini
          We had a great time on this tour. We have taken many tours over the years, from small private ones to large ones with high end groups. This was as good as any we’ve been on and better than most. Andy is very knowledgeable about Edinburgh and has a very personable and entertaining delivery. I had some reservations about the comfort of a small mini, but my wife and I were very comfortable and Andy was able to navigate some of the smaller roads to get us to quaint and interesting areas that a larger car wouldn’t be able to get to. Highly recommend!

        Had a fantastic 2 hour tour with Andy in his Mini Cooper. Smashing bloke, very personable and knowledgeable for a start. Took us around some great “ off the beaten track” gems in the comfort of his Mini Cooper. I’m 6’3” and was slightly concerned beforehand would I enjoy 2 hours in it, but fear not, it’s like a tardis, loads of room for us big lads.

        We managed to grab some amazing views of the city and some history thrown in too. Far better than a bus tour in my opinion.

        Collected us from the hotel on time and dropped us back to wherever we wanted.

        A sound guy and we wish Andy all the best.

        Excellent choice for a complete tour in only two hours. Rowan guided me throughout Edinburgh to not only all the classics, but places I would not have found. The hard to find oldest pub in Edinburgh was somewhere I’d not seen. He’s vastly knowledgeable, funny, and accommodated a knee injury. Highly recommend.

        After a hiccup in our booking, all my fault, Rowan was with us within 30 minutes. This was outstanding customer service. My Aussie friend, with one day to spend in Scotland, was able to see the sights in style and have a fun and informative tour. Rowan was charming, genuine, enthusiastic and a perfect host to Edinburgh. Great value for money, I would highly recommend you give MiniMack a go.

        Unfortunately the streets near Arthur's Seat and Parliament were blocked off the afternoon of our tour, but Rowan made the best of it and drove us in the Red Rocket to South Queensferry instead. We also went to Dean Village and finally were able to get to Calton Hill. Rowan is very knowledgeable and personable. At the end of the tour he gave us a map with recommended sites and restaurants. I highly recommend taking this tour.

        Its a pain when some of the roads are closed, but there is always something else cool to see in the city. Glad you enjoyed it. Cheers Rowan.

        Hi! This two hour tour was such a wonderful experience and I believe it is due to Rowan's love for his country. He was so kind too. It was great to see the city with someone who is a native. We definitely recommend and totally worth it.

        Thanks to Andy for a great 2 hour tour of the city. This was a great way to see all the main sights and some of the lesser known ones, that we would never have found on our own. Being a personal tour gives you the freedom to spend more or less time at certain locations and is a lot more interactive compared to a group tour. We really got a feel of the city and even went away with some great recommendations of where to go during the rest of our visit.

        Hello !
        We visited Edinburgh in May 2018.
        We found mini mack tours online and found their profile interesting and immediately got in touch with them.Our tour was with Andy and we had lovely time seeing an offbeat path with him along with interesting comversations. He was witty, smart and polite. I definitely recommend the tour with Mini Mack and Andy , it was a memorable experience, and gave us some great memories of Edinburgh to take back home.
