Richard M.

Edinburgh, Midlothian, United Kingdom

Hello and welcome, thank you for reading my profile!

So you have decided to visit the best small country in the world and now you need a guide. Well look no further.

I was born and raised in Inverness and have lived in Edinburgh for the last 20 years so have knowledge and experience of both these areas. I have 15 years plus experience of providing small group tours, maximum 16 guests, all over Scotland and the North of England. I enjoy this hugely as touring becomes a lifestyle and way of life after a while, and it suits me. Edinburgh and Scotland are great places to visit with something for everyone from landscape and culture to shopping and cuisine.

I have always enjoyed my job as a Scottish Tour guide and host, and I enjoy meeting people from all over the world, it is a great job. My heart is in touring and meeting people, so I am more than happy to be out there, conducting tours and showing people around my marvellous country whenever I can. I don't think I will ever stop touring as I love it so much, it gets into the blood after a while.

In summary, I am a reliable, presentable and entertaining host who loves working as a Scottish Tour Guide. I can operate with group sizes of 1-16 guests for 1 day tours or tours lasting several days and am happy to operate from Edinburgh, Glasgow or other locations around Scotland. I always aim to deliver high standards of customer service and provide memorable experiences to my guests.

I hope to meet and welcome you soon!
