Kevin M.

Edinburgh, Scotland, United Kingdom

My name is Kevin and I will be your driver and Edinburgh Tour Guide!



I set up up my tours with a lifetime of experience in exploring Scotland, Ireland and the UK over ten years ago.

My aim is to deliver a first-rate private tour to Edinburgh visitors, but in a way that's totally different from expensive chauffeur drives or set bus tours. Large Edinburgh tour buses can't go on narrow cobbled streets or on many of the small Highland roads - I can. Tour buses have strictly set times and routes, so you don't get to see as much as you could - I don't. In fact, I take pride in showing the Edinburgh that lots of tour guides leave out! With over a decade of experience giving tours you won't be disappointed.

I am very passionate about Edinburgh and wish to share my enthusiasm and passion as I show you around in a fun, relaxed, flexible and informative way.

I have given many informal tours in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas. My tours have even stretched as far afield as The Highlands of Scotland and London, England. The tours are very informal but also informative and entertaining. I don't just read off a check list or a tour book, I know these places well and so will you by the end of our tour. Scotland's history dates so far back, you can never have enough knowledge. I am constantly learning and amazed about the history of this fabulous country.

Your tour will be in a traditional London TX Taxi, this taxi is used exclusively and only for tours and as such, is immaculate inside and out. The Taxi does have air conditioning and wifi. All tours are priced per vehicle and I can carry up to four passengers at a time comfortably. I am fully insured and have public liability insurance.

If you do require a tour for more than four people, this is not a problem and I can also arrange for a larger vehicle to be available as well.

I am a tour guide officially recognised by the City of Edinburgh Council and a member of the prestigious Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers.

A Recent Review of this guide

Kevin was the most enthusiastic guide and the best we've ever had in over four years and three continents. We had him for two full days excellent use of time and very well organized. As with other top guides tailored to our interests including arranging tour of a castle/home closed for the season the one on one with the steward of the property was unique. Every hour was a colorful adventure.
