Peter H.

Edinburgh, Midlothian, United Kingdom

Yes, a Guide Book can help plan a tour of Edinburgh and some Tour Guides can show you the sights.

However what I can do, as a lifetime resident of Edinburgh, is bring Edinburgh to life! With many years of walking tours experience, I offer a unique insight into Edinburgh's character, with stories of the famous - and the infamous! My ethos is to inform and to entertain. My private tours provide you with an opportunity to learn about not only the facts, but the stories and tales around Edinburgh's fascinating history.
Through previous employment with Historic Scotland, I am an accredited guide for Edinburgh Castle. I offer tours with your own private guide, they can be standard and customised tours and can tailor your needs around the places of interest within this beautiful city.
I also offer flexibility with days and times of tours to suit your itinerary. My quality tours are affordable and I would hope by the end of the tour, you will have a real sense of Edinburgh, capital city of that old and ancient land of Scotland.

A wonderful tour with Peter! He is friendly, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor! His love of Edinburgh and Scotland in general is apparent and he made me feel like I was back in time. Don't miss out on a tour with Peter if you have a chance! Mary Ellen (from Texas)
