I was up in Edinburgh alone as I was attending a funeral. I really wanted to explore outside the city but would never have been able to safely do this alone. Rishi’s tour was perfect - a great walk at my pace in the Pentlands. Rishi was immediately welcoming and it never felt awkward, the scenery is beautiful and it’s clear that Rishi is passionate about the area and really made the effort to learn the history of the places we were walking. A great alternative to wandering around the centre of Edinburgh. Rishi took the time to make sure I was comfortable with the pace, had snacks and offered breaks etc..

I highly recommend this experience! Rishi is a delightful host, and has a lot of stories about the history and culture of the area. I enjoyed the hike in the Pentland Hills immensely, despite terrible weather..... I learned a lot, and we were lucky enough to spot both grouse and deer, in addition to the local sheep and alpacka. The landscape is lovely, and it's amazing that just a few minutes out of the city centre there is so much beautiful nature. The walk itself was not too strenuous, but long enough to feel it in the muscles afterwards! Overall, a really great experience!

I had the good fortune of being the only guest in Rishi’s group, and he more than made up for the disagreeable weather. I very much enjoyed our chat. If I find myself in Edinburgh again, this would be the one trip I would like to make again.

The walk was beautiful 😊 During the hike, Rishi told lots of exciting stories about Scotland and Edinburgh. I highly recommend choosing this experience; you’ll have a chance to see the beauty of the nature surrounding the city and dive deep into the history of this place 😊

Let me state the obvious first: the hike itself is beautiful, and well worth it. But when you spend 5 hours in the hills with a complete stranger some getting to know-ing is inevitable, and I was hoping Rishi would be good company. In fact he is fantastic. A great storyteller, knows everything about Edinburgh, super thoughtful and my sister and I feel we have come away with a friend as well as a tour guide. Also: I’m disabled, and this hike took us almost twice as long. Rishi was super patient and helped me through rocky terrain (and even along the road as my legs were turning to jelly by the end, lol). Could not have asked for a better guide. Thank you so much!!

Our experience with Rishi was amazing. It was just me and my sister; I let Rishi know beforehand that my sister has some mobility difficulties (cerebral palsy) and would need to take extra time on the hike. Rishi didn’t hesitate to accommodate us and was always there for a helping hand whenever my sister needed help balancing. The actual hike was gorgeous and enhanced by all of Rishi’s stories and info about the area. We had a great time with him in general and he gave us plenty of recommendations for food and about Edinburgh in general. 100% recommend this experience, it was lovely.
