I'm Chris, Owner/Guide at Local Eyes Tours. I do Small Group Walking Tours and Running Tours, along with Private Tours for those who prefer a more intimate holiday experience. I offer City Tours and Tours to stunning countryside locations outside Edinburgh. Check out my website to watch my fun video, "5 Reasons to Visit Scotland". I grew up in the Edinburgh area and have lived all over Scotland, and on tour with me, you'll get all the stories only locals know. I aim to bring the history of Edinburgh and Scotland to life in a fun and relaxed manner while always offering the best customer service possible. So whether you want to see Bonnie Scotland on a budget or have a bespoke tour in mind, get in contact and I'll give you a tour to remember. See Scotland with Local Eyes!

There’s nothing like talking to a local to get answers. In 3 hours, I gained more knowledge of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile than I can remember. Gillian, my guide and a true local was an experienced vault of history with interesting and not-so-well-known back-stories of virtually...More
