Bill R

Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, United Kingdom

I am enthusiastic about my beautiful country of Scotland.

I have lived here all my life and consider it a joy to show it to travelers. I am easy going and good company. I am reliable and knowledgeable about where to go and what to eat. I am flexible and will do my best to ensure that your experience will be a good one.

I am a people person without being over the top. I respect your privacy and appreciate that your experience of me must be the best I can give you.

I am retired and am now doing something I really enjoy. I have completed many tours with ToursByLocals. I have been a guide for the company for over 6 years.

I can also spend time customising a tour for you if you wish. Please do get in touch via the website email system and I will do my utmost to help.

A Recent Review of this guide

This was a fantastic trip with a lovely man with a great sense of humor. we went to the loveliest of a town 120 people and spent a good deal of time mingling with people and enjoying this gem. We, as always, spent a good deal of time learning about the country, socioeconomic conditions, health care, universities. We did not regret our decision to skip the city and journey though the countryside. We wish we had had more time with this terrific gentleman.

I have lived in Glasgow most of my life. I am retired and showing people Glasgow and the Highlands is something I really enjoy. Glasgow is a friendly city, that's its biggest qualification as well as being near Loch Lomond and the start of the Scottish Highlands. I own a Jaguar XJ6 car. I have a full UK licence. I have chauffeur insurance and public liability cover which is compulsory in the UK for the types of tours offered. I have a full clean UK driving licence which I have held for 40 years.


I can take 4 passengers in my Jaguar but it is more comfortable with 3.
