About me

I have been a member of couchsurfing for 5 years now and have received positive reviews from people all over the world. This just seems like a natural progression from that. I already give my guests tips on things to do in Edinburgh depending on the tastes. I really enjoy meeting new people and am proud to show them the city I live in through my eyes.

Edinburgh ganz persönlich

James war der perfekte Guide. Er hat uns einen super Eindruck über die Stadt vermittelt, was uns als Edinburgh-Anfängern sehr geholfen hat. Schon einige Tage zuvor hat er uns tolle Tipps geschickt, die unseren Aufenthalt rund um die Tour zu einem sehr schönen Erlebnis gemacht haben. So sind wir nie in Touristenfallen gelaufen. Immer wieder sehr gerne.

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.
