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
Thank you David for a delightful tour of Edinburgh. It was fun, informative and enjoyable. You are very knowledgeable and easy to be with. I appreciate you understanding my inability to walk long distances and the fact that you were able to accommodate me so well. Thank you also for being flexible and allowing us to tour a small scotch distillery close to Edinburgh. I would highly recommend you to everyone. Thanks again!

Many of Scotland's tourist attractions are historic buildings and do not allow guides to give personal tours inside. These sites provide headsets in order for you to self tour, there will be staff on hand to answer any queries.
