Private tour guide Andy

Andy M.

Edinburgh, Midlothian, United Kingdom

I'm Andy, and I will be your driver and guide during your visit to the beautiful, medieval, unique city of Edinburgh.

After serving in the British Army for 17 years, I returned to my hometown of Edinburgh and have lived here for the last 20 years, before becoming a tour guide and licensed taxi driver. I also spent several years working as a Financial Adviser and in advertising. And because life is all about experiences, I was also an actor in various Scottish TV productions.
With over 10 years of guiding experience my goal during your visit is to provide you with an experience that you will never forget.
Because of my previous career paths, I consider myself to be a real "people person" who is flexible, accommodating and adaptable. Even if the tours that I offer don't quite tick all the boxes, contact me as I can always amend and rearrange the content to suit your requirements.
I will bring the history and evolution of Edinburgh to life, not just by facts and dates, but through stories and events that have made Edinburgh the city that it is today. And of course, a tour isn't a tour without some of the trivia and the humor not found in guidebooks that give you the very essence of the city.

From start to finish, you will be kept entertained and informed whilst travelling in the spacious comfort of a Mercedes taxi which carries up to 6 passengers. There will also be opportunities to walk parts of the routes that we travel on and plenty of opportunity for photo stops. For those taking an All Day Tour, you will, of course, have the opportunity to visit inside a major attraction or two.
