After leaving the Army 20 years ago and returning to my hometown I started in the family business of taxi driving and my true love and passion for my city was released.
I have spent my spare time furthering my knowledge of this amazing city and passed the Taxi Tour Guiding course.
I thoroughly enjoy and love nothing more than passing on my knowledge in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.
On each of my tours I like to make them informative and educational as well as fun and entertaining.
This is not a coach tour. This is all about you
Do you want to take a photograph of something you like?
Or pop into a pub and sample some of our world famous whisky and hospitality.
The choice is yours completely.
I will be your guide and use my local knowledge to show you places and parts of the city and Scotland as a whole that most people never get the chance to see but I would rather show you the parts that you are interested in.
Being a taxi driver has allowed me the opportunity to take part in several charity trips in different cities of the UK and have been extremely fortunate to have taken part in the London to Disneyland Paris trip for terminally ill children every year since 2005.
The vehicle I use is an iconic London Taxi that I purchased solely for doing tours and have restored to near showroom condition.
I can comfortably carry 4 passengers.
Fully wheelchair accessible.
My cab is fully insured.
A Recent Review of this guide
Neil was fantastic. He was dressed professionaly and gave a wonderful insight into the city and it's history. I loved the interesting stories he told. In fact today I fell in love with the city of Edingburgh and Neil played a huge part in that! He also gave up a planned day off to fill in for our original guide who had an injury and couldn't attend. We had a wonderful day.
