ALEXANDER

I am a proud Scot and love showing people around the best wee country in the world! When I first moved to Edinburgh from the country near Stirling I worked behind a desk in a bank. I quickly realised that the corporate life wasn’t for me and I set out on a career in the tourism industry!

I was a tour guide for 3 years before working an a different part of Scottish tourism, but the desire to get back on the road has lead me to join Experienced Tours and show our guests the best Scotland has to offer.

My favourite place in Scotland is Falkland Palace in The Kingdom of Fife

SEAN

Although I was born in Australia, I’ve been guiding all over the UK and Europe for the last 15 years and decided that concentrating on smaller, more tailored tours of my adopted home country is where my heart lies.

I look forward to sharing my passion for all things Scottish with my groups and families from all over the world….

My favourite place in Scotland is Oban on the west coast

BERYL

I am a passionate guide living in Edinburgh and travelling across Scotland. I have learned so much about this great country, its people and its history and love sharing the stories with visitors.

I specialise in both day-tours from Edinburgh and longer overnight itineraries to the far flung corners of Scotland. I am a fluent German speaker and therefore am able to provide comprehensive tours to German visitors.

My favourite place in Scotland is Dornoch in The Highlands

FORBES

I’ve been a guide for over 8 years, originally working with a small minibus tour company taking visitors to the Isle of Skye and Loch Ness. I love exploring all the interesting nooks and crannies that Scotland has to offer.

I joined Experienced Tours to show visitors to Scotland both the big sights but also the ‘off the beaten track’ hidden gems along the route.I enjoy showing visitors our rich history and modern society that makes Scotland so interesting!

I specialise in multi-day itineraries to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

My favourite place in Scotland is Applecross

PETE

In 2012, I moved away from being a desk jockey and started guiding minibus tours from Edinburgh. Driving the minibus tours gave me the chance to share my passion for Scotland with visitors from around the world.

In 2017, I decided to jump ship to the private tour guiding industry. In smaller groups there is much more opportunity to get to know my clients and tailor the tours to their interests. I used to talk at my customers, now I talk with them!

I love taking visitors to the places that make Scotland so unique and varied.  I’m looking forward to discovering the many hidden gems with you!

My favourite place in Scotland is the network of closes that run off the Royal Mile in Edinburgh
