I have been a licensed Edinburgh taxi driver for twenty years, and my occupation has given me an enormous knowledge of Edinburgh, its places and people. I am also a qualified taxi tour guide and like nothing more than sharing my experiences as a local, telling the tales and showing the sites of this fabulous and unique city and surrounding areas to our visiting friends and guests from across the world.
I carry out all tours in my state of the art purpose built Mercedes Vito taxi. The taxi is capable of carrying a maximum of 6 passengers, is wheelchair accessible, has aircon and wifi access.
All tours will be tailored in a manner to make your day as enjoyable and memorable as possible. I will endeavor to cater to any particular interests or requirements you have. All tours will give lots of opportunities for photo stops. Comfort and refreshment breaks are made upon request.
Away from work I enjoy spending time with my family. I'm a keen fan of sport and music and love to travel whenever possible. I would be delighted to help you get the most out of your time in Edinburgh and Scotland.
A Recent Review of this guide
David was absolutely amazing! We fell in love with him immediately! Very personable and easy to talk to and full of knowledge! We had done an amazing tour of Edinburgh the day before with one David's colleagues and wanted to see more of the countryside this day . Not knowing exactly what we wanted to see, David took the lead and we had a fabulous day. This is about my 6th time i have used Tours by locals and I have an outstanding experience every Time! I'm sold on this group!
