What you'll do

***This is a Private Tour, so you must discuss your plans and date of travel with me before booking. The experience will be customised for you and the Airbnb price will be adjusted accordingly for the day of your booking.

The advantage of a private tour opposed to a tourist bus is having the flexibility of personalising your tour with the privacy of your own vehicle and driver guide. My custom tours cover the whole of Scotland, with single- and multi-day options in my spacious minibus (7 people). My aim is not only to deliver important facts, but to entertain with tales of Scotland and provide you with as full and authentic an experience of Scotland as possible. In addition to Scotland’s best-known sites, you will also access off the beaten track areas and unique locations that only an experienced local guide would know!

I cover all of Scotland’s areas of interest incl, sites of outstanding natural beauty, castles and history, movie filming locations, whisky distilleries, hiking and much more. I have a range of tour itineraries and packages to suit all tastes and for every type of traveller, so please get in touch to discuss your guided Scotland tour!

An enthusiastic lover of nature, history and all things Scottish, I have been a professional Scotland tour guide since 2015 for some of Scotland's leading hotels. Born, bred and lived in Scotland most of my life, I entered into tour guiding after University graduation with a desire to explore my country and it's exquisite nature, captivating history and rich culture. Scotland tour guiding is my passion; I love interacting and making friends with people from all over the world. Scotland is a truly fascinating and beautiful place and I relish being able to share my knowledge on Scotland's nature, history and culture with others and to leave you, by the end of your tour with a real sense of Scotland.

We had a personalised tour with Louis. He personalised the itinerary based on what we wanted and was very flexible. His local knowledge is excellent and is able to I'm part it in a thoughtful way. He was patient with my 9 year old daughter and her million inquisitive questions, so definitely good for families with younger kids.

Louis was extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating. Prior to meeting up, Louis offered several options to customise the trip to our preferences. Couldn’t have asked for a better guide to see the beautiful landscape of Scotland.

Louis was 5 star from start to finish. My wife and I had no clue what we wanted to see in Edinburgh. I mentioned this to him in an email and was very impressed when he sent a 13 page PDF with 10 different trip options ranging from inner city driving to the highlands of Scotland. When we met in person, I let him know that my wife, kids, and I still weren't really sure what we wanted to see. "No problem at all" he said, and talked us through what he thought we might like to see. Not once were we limited at all to his suggested trip options. Instead, he insisted that wherever we wanted to go was available. He opened the car door and waiting was a share-pack of biscuits for the kids, a 12 pack of water, and a blanket in case any of us got cold on the outing. Once underway, Louis was knowledgeable, funny, warm, friendly, open, engaging, and inviting. Never once was it awkward or boring. I would highly recommend him to any wanting to see a private tour of Edinburgh or the surrounding countryside.
