I was a licensed Edinburgh taxi driver for seventeen years, this has given me a vast knowledge and experience of our wonderful city. I am a certified tour guide and love to share my experiences as a local. I will show you the sites of this wonderful, medieval city and take you on an adventure anywhere you would care to visit in Scotland.
My tours are carried out all in a luxury Volkswagen Transporter Shuttle and can seat 8 adult passengers comfortably, there is also a large trunk for suitcases, golf clubs etc. The vehicle is 2 years old and in immaculate condition, with air con, leg room and general comfort. It is finished to a high standard, with carpet and leatherette upholstery.
All my tours are bespoke and tailor made to make your day as enjoyable and memorable as possible. I will try my best to cater to any particular interests or requirements you have. All tours will give lots of opportunities for photo stops and comfort and refreshment breaks.
Away from work I enjoy spending time with my family. I enjoy running, hill walking and cycling. I also offer walking and running tours in Edinburgh and The West Highland Way. If you fancy heading to any section of the West Highland way, I can show you the way. Alternatively, I can show you the Pentland Hills as well as countless walks in the centre and suburbs of Edinburgh
A Recent Review of this guide
The entire family loved this tour! We had tricky weather but we were able to make the best of the day. Stephen is a great tour guide! He was very accommodating and flexible with our itinerary. We were all impressed with Stephen's knowledge of Scottish history and his enthusiasm to share his love of Scotland with us. We had a great day and would definitely book another tour with Stephen!
