I am the author of a taxi driver's guide to the city and I published a column for a national magazine for many years. I am currently a tutor on a further education course for trainee tour guides, a tutor at a Knowledge school for potential taxi drivers, and currently working on a book "History of the Taxi Trade in Edinburgh" as well as one looking at the changes in social conditions in the city.

A Recent Review of this guide
We had a fantastic day with Bob! He took us to the Castle and told us about it giving us stories of the inhabitants and towns people. We enjoyed learning about the Royal Mile from a humorous perspective. Bob was accommodating, personable, and flexible. Prior to our tour he quickly answered my emails. He arranged a van/ driver to accommodate our party of 7 which was perfect for touring and our driver, Alex, drove us safely to our destinations. Bob's friendly manor and humor made this tour a delightful time
