Overview

My name is Kevin and I will be your driver and Edinburgh Tour Guide! Ditch the coach and experience Scotland in style with a private taxi and personal driver and guide! It’s exactly like having a friend show you around. I set up up my Tours with a lifetime of experience in exploring Scotland, Ireland and the UK. My aim is to deliver a first-rate private tour to Edinburgh visitors, but in a way that’s totally different from expensive chauffeur drives or set bus tours. Large Edinburgh tour buses can't go on narrow cobbled streets or on many of the small Highland roads – I can. Tour buses have strictly set times and routes, so you don’t get to see as much as you could – I don’t. In fact, I take pride in showing the Edinburgh that lots of tour guides leave out! With over a decade of experience you won’t be disappointed. I am very passionate about Edinburgh and wish to share my enthusiasm and passion as I show you around in a fun, relaxed, flexible and informative way.
