Hello! My name is Sarah, I am a bilingual tour guide in English and Italian. My main passions are history, human beings and performing, that is why I became a tour guide. I have several years experience guiding in one of the main historical attractions in the city and working with the public. Being empathetic is a fundamental skill when working with people, that is why my tours are different according to the age, nationality and needs of my customers. Delivering tours, for me, means also to have a good time and my enjoyment is infectious. Edinburgh is a vibrant jewel immersed in history and culture and it will be a joy to share it with you!

I'm a Chemical Physics graduate currently running The Potter Trail (Edinburgh's Harry Potter tours), touring science shows for kids with the Edinburgh International Science Festival and aspiring to be a comedy writer/performer with my sketch group Planet Caramel. I'm very outgoing and enjoy learning from other people. I'm always looking to entertain and get great pleasure in communicating ideas in a clear and interesting way. Comedy is my main passion in life and I try to inject a bit of it into everything I do. The Edinburgh Fringe is my Christmas and I've performed in it every year since 2011. I'm already very experienced as a tour guide receiving almost exclusively 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor for my tours. My enthusiasm for Edinburgh is boundless and I am to make you love this city as much as I do!

I am 67 years of age, married (to Fiona) with two grown-up daughters (Hannah, 26, and Claire, 22). I was born near London (so don't have a scottish accent unfortunately), but moved to Edinburgh 35 years ago. I worked until 2013 in senior marketing and sales roles in the alcoholic drinks industry....since then I have been working as a business contractor on a part-time basis. My main interests are sports, cinema, walking, and reading. I was fortunate in my working life in being able to create working partnerships with some of the principal Edinburgh Fringe performance venues....so, since giving up full-time work I've really come to appreciate Edinburgh in August !
