A fun and knowledgeable guide, I am keen on history and know Edinburgh's story quite well. Having lived in the lovey Scottish capital for a long time now, I have had the amazing opportunity to experience its unique culture and people. I also used to be a volunteer at the St. Giles Cathedral where my interest in history was ignited. I believe that history should be presented in a unbiased, capturing and passionate way. The tour is free which means you are free to choose how much to tip the guide at the end of the tour. So if you want to go on an amazing adventure and get to know the Old Town of Edinburgh as best as possible, just book a tour and leave the rest in my hands.

About the Tour

Having been a cultural, historical, scientific and political centre of Scotland for centuries, the truly fascinating city of Edinburgh is by far one of the most unique cities in the world. ​ For such a small country, Scotland and also Edinburgh sure gave much to the world.

The city has seen countless battles throughout the ages. Mighty kings and queens have resided here, wars have been declared, impressive monuments built, stunning inventions created and religious revolutions carried out. ​ 

With its amazing architecture and romantic scenery, the Scottish capital can offer you an amazing adventure, one which will leave lasting memories long after your visit here. ​ With a fun personna such as myself, you will be taken on a great, amazing tour around the Old Town of Edinburgh, which is the heart and foundation of the city. ​ You will get to see museums, remarkable sites, such as the impressive St. Giles Cathedral and the Castle of Edinburgh, one of the most besieged and attacked places in the world - and much more. At the same time, you will learn so much as history will be presented to you in the best possible way.

The tour is free which means you have the freedom to evaluate it by tipping the tour guide at the end.
