Tour Guide (Walking Tours)

Organisation: All-Star Guides

Salary: From £15.00 per hour

Location: Edinburgh

Share your knowledge and pride for Edinburgh, the city we love!

If you are a travel enthusiast, a history buff and you enjoy meeting people from around the world, consider joining All-Star Guides as our tour guide.

Who we are
All-Star Guides was established in March 2020 (we know, great timing!)

We offer private and group walking tours of Edinburgh, combining historic accuracy and dramatic delivery. We don’t believe in jump scares, we don’t wear costumes, and we don’t offer ghost tours. Instead, we tell people how ghost stories are born.

As our guide, you will receive full and paid training, and we will work together to ensure you can make our tour your own, adding your own spin and personality to the delivery.

What we are looking for
We are looking for outgoing, enthusiastic and engaging individuals, who love meeting people and show them around Edinburgh.
You will have a good knowledge of Edinburgh’s and Scotland’s history and you will be sharing it with groups of up to 30 people. You will be talking about the history, culture and heritage of the city and you will be fully trained to provide a memorable experience that our visitors will carry with them forever.
You will be following an established itinerary with punctuality, but will not hesitate to make changes where necessary.
You will offer relevant suggestions to travellers on restaurants, souvenirs, shopping and more.
You will be open-minded and flexible to all things that come your way.
