My name is Kevin and I will be your driver and Edinburgh tour guide!
I set up Taxi Tours Scotland with a lifetime of experience in exploring Scotland, Ireland and the UK. 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!
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 of a check list or a tour book, I know these places well and so will you by the end of our tour.
Your tour will be in a traditional London TX Taxi. All tours are priced per vehicle and I can carry up to four passengers at a time. I am fully insured and have full 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 another 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.
