About me

Hi! I'm Michaela and I love living in Edinburgh! I first came to Scotland on a study abroad during my undergrad and fell in love immediately. This is what brought me back for my graduate studies. I have had friends and family visit me over the years and it's a blast showing them around the city I've fallen in love with. There is always so much to see and do. I love whiskey, I love food, I love to dance, and I love the quirky shops all over the city. There is so much green space and history here that you are sure to find a bit of magic if you come on a wandering adventure with me!

EDINBURGH, HALF DAY IN EDINBURGH WITH A LOCAL

August 2019

A wonderful first day in Edinburgh!

Traveling solo and the Half Day with Local was a perfect way to enjoy Day 1. My guide Roxana was great - shared both typical tourist sites but also more local sites which I really enjoyed! She also made great recommendations for dining and other things to do. Traveling with Roxana was like traveling with a friend more than a guide! Great day!

EDINBURGH, HALF DAY IN EDINBURGH WITH A LOCAL

August 2019

A MUST DO

Roxana, our tour guide, was absolutely amazing. We scheduled our tour online, met Roxana at The Hub and started our incredible journey. Instead of heading straight down the extremely busy main street with Fringe enthusiasts, we went down the side-street to Grassmarket, learning of the town scene from Harry Potter being set-up to mirror Grassmarket. The stories went on and on as we made our way down the Royal Mile, stopping at key points of interest, even took our group picture in a garden along the way. Roxana's knowledge was remarkable, even knowing where to duck into when a downpour came, yet ensuring she kept informing us of nearby city happenings! This tour was, without a doubt, one of the highlights of our week in Scotland! THANKS ROXANA!

City Unscripted Tour: Castle to Arthur’s Seat great experience

We were fortunate to be part of this group with our host Roxane, very pleasant and expert person about Edinburgh's history. Despite the fact that the weather was bad it was very good experience!
