Hello! I’m Dave, I’m from the mysterious Highlands of Scotland, and I would love to be your tour guide when you visit awesome Edinburgh. Here is a wee bit about me... In 2012, I moved to Paris & hit the ground rolling with Fat Tire Bike Tours. This is where I learnt my tour guiding craft, and I even ended up on French TV after revamping the Claude Monet Gardens tour! After a stint at the Berlin branch, I moved back to sunny Scotland to learn more at Skibo Castle. It is an exclusive tourist resort where I received training from Peter Chrome, ex-manager of The Savoy in London. Now, I’ve taken everything I’ve learnt, and mixed it together with my love of movies, comedy, and performance to create a unique style of tour guiding. It’s all about the story! You’ll get all the facts & dates you’d normally expect, but what I do is wrap all that into the true story of Scotland….. I want you to leave the tour feeling like you’ve watched a movie! Here is what other people have to say about my 5* tours on Trip Advisor… “To Dave - one of the best tour guides you can ever have!” Reviewed 23 July 2014 Having been to quite a number tours around Europe, I dare say that my experience in Edinburgh was one of the best! All thanks to our tour guide, Dave. :) His enthusiasm throughout was remarkable - I'm still amazed at how much energy he had. The entire time he led us around, he told us about Scottish history and other interesting facts as if he was conducting a lively storytelling-session. I'm definitely not a history person, but Dave managed to keep me engaged throughout the tour. So thanks Dave, keep up the good work! :) Visited June 2014 “New Wave Brave Dave Is My Fave” Reviewed 24 July 2014NEW This was my second Sandemans Free Walking Tour and it was fantastic! It was an ideal way to explore bits of Edinburgh as someone who's never been before...especially someone without a lot of time on their hands. Our guide, Dave, was filled with knowledge of this great city he is so clearly passionate about. I've never had such an energetic and hilarious tour guide and I especially enjoyed the well structured stories complimented by shamelessly choosing individuals to fulfill historic roles. Dave is definitely a great choice if you're a visual learner who likes a theatrical kick to their tour! I also got a kick out of his matching rainbow patterned shoes and backpack, so there's also that. Trust me, the kid knows how to present. Hope you get your pizza! Visited July 2014 “Best walking tour we've ever had.” Reviewed 26 June 2014 Everything you want in a walking tour. Dave, our tour guide from new Edinburgh free walking tour is hands down the best tour guide we have ever had, telling hilarious stories along with interesting facts to accompany the amazing views and attractions Edinburgh has to offer, leaving you wanting to tip generously (an unusual trait!) If you are in Edinburgh for the first time and speak English, just do it. Visited June 2014 “Awesome!!! Don't miss out!!!” Reviewed 5 June 2014 Best walking tour I've ever done. David was so enthusiastic, using members of the crowd to assist in telling his stories. His stories were exciting and thrilling - definitely a born story teller. Don't be disappointed by missing out! “Edinburgh Tour” Reviewed 18 December 2014 Dave was totally awesome, so much energy and answered all our questions!!
