Richard, private guide in Edinburgh

HELLO, I’M RICHARD

I live in Leith.
I work in Old Town or all over Scotland.
I hang out in Leith, Tollcross, Newington.

About me

I'm a Chemical Physics graduate but also know a thing or two about Harry Potter. I even run The Potter Trail, which is Edinburgh's Harry Potter tours. It doesn't end there though. I also love doing touring science shows with kids, taking them to the Edinburgh International Science Festival. When I am not doing the science and Harry Potter thing, I am an aspiring comedy writer and performer with my sketch group Planet Caramel. I like to think that I bring diversity to the table when taking people through the city, and hope to make your trip an exciting one. 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!
