Bob M.

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Hi my name is Robert (Bob) and I would love to show you the major sights of my wonderful city, but I also want to show you parts of Edinburgh that tourists never get to see.

I have been an Edinburgh Licensed Taxi Driver for 34 years and A TOUR GUIDE for 31years. 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.

You will tour the city with me in a traditional London taxi known all over the world as a British icon

You set the pace of the tour and each tour can be tailored to suit you and your particular interests. Our tours are from two hours to three days and everything in between.

Photo opportunities and comfort stops on request

Vehicle used can accommodate wheelchair user

Below is just a small sample of what I offer - Tours can be arranged to suit individual needs and interests.

A Recent Review of this guide

Robert was charming and full of information. He was especially attuned to our wishes and made sure we saw what we wished. A couple of shops we wished to visit were added to the excellent tour around and through edinbrough. He was a perfect ambassador for his city and we hope to visit and ask for him again.
