Hello, I’m Zainab.

I live in Edinburgh.
I work in Edinburgh.

About me

Hi there! I am 21 years old and I study Psychology at the University of Edinburgh. I was born in Edinburgh but lived in Dubai for 3 years and went to 6 different high schools. I can speak English, Urdu, Punjabi and Hindi fluently. I love Edinburgh as it has always been home to me. The atmosphere in the city is very friendly and bubbly which is beautiful. The history and architecture never fail to impress me and there's always something new to see or a new fact to learn! I love shopping and I am a BIG foodie. Edinburgh is loaded with delicious and unique restaurants and cafe's that somehow still have that twang of Edinburgh history attached to it. In my free time, I teach children aged 4-7 and I am a diehard Prison Break fan. People usually say that I am chatty, fun, friendly and good with children. I love the beautiful scenery in Edinburgh and enjoy walking on the occasional sunny day. I would make a great host as I know exactly which restaurants to go if you're a food lover and the undiscovered spots around the city - within any budget!

Thank you!

We had a lovely young student. She had a lot of knowledge and proud of her city which is a pleasant surprise as most would take what they have for granted as some young Aussies do back home. I would like to pass on my personal thanks to Zainab.

Edinburgh tour

Our guide Zainab was a local graduate student who was personable, knowledgeable about her city and flexible about what we wanted to see and know about. It was an informal and very enjoyable 4-hour tour.

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!

All the local culture

I am very interested in the historical culture of Scotland, and very much enjoyed the trip with my host Ms. Alana. She’s professional and informative. We were really happy with the 2-hour trip guided by her. Thank you very much and I am looking forward to the next trip to Scotland.

EDINBURGH, ULTIMATE EDINBURGH FOOD EXPERIENCE

July 2019

Eat Your Way Around Old Town Edinburgh

Our guide Roxana was fantastic. She contacted us before we left the States asking what we'd like to eat, where we wanted to eat etc. We told her we would leave it completely to her discretion and that was a great choice. We decided on small bites rather than a single large meal so we tasted multiple eateries from counter top food to sit down. The day included a few stops to taste the local drinks while eating. It was a fast 3.5 hour tour. Notably, this was her first of this type tour so whoever follows us will only be better so lucky you. Highly recommend asking for Roxana as a guide.
