Our Mission 

At Expert Excursions, our passion is delivering extraordinary, expert-led, private day-excursions from Edinburgh. Relax on our tours as our expert guides show you around our country and take you on a journey to discover our rich history, heritage, culture, and landscapes.   


Private Experiences 

As part of our commitment to providing exceptional quality and unforgettable experiences, all of our tours are private experiences. It’s just you and your very own expert guide, exclusively for your party only.  


Simple Booking and Convenient Excursions 

Easy Booking 
To us, convenience and peace of mind are some of life’s greatest luxuries. We believe that holidays should be a stress-free experience, which is why we offer easy online booking for all of our tours. Pay by card in your currency of choice using our secure online payments system. 


Convenient Pick-Up and Meeting 
All of our driver-guided tours include our door-to-door service. Relax in the knowledge that our guides will meet you at your accommodation with their vehicle at the start of the tour, and drop you off there at the end. On our walking tours you can choose between meeting your guide at your city centre accommodation or at a set meeting point in the city to begin your tour.  


Travelling with Children 
All of our tours are suitable for children. Unlike many tour operators, we have no minimum age for participants on our tours.  


Our Expert Guides 

Our local, expert guides are simply the best in the business, and the primary ingredient in what makes our tours great.  


As passionate ambassadors for Scotland, our guides bring Scotland to life through their personal stories and life experiences, allowing you to truly immerse yourself into the best our country has to offer. In their safe and capable hands, you can rest assured you’re being well looked after from start to finish. 


All of our guides are passionate expert freelance tourist guides. They are trained to the highest level of tourist guide certification in Scotland by the Scottish Tourist Guides Association, meeting European Standards CEN EN15565:2008 and accredited by both the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations and the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations.  


Climate Positive Excursions 

Every one of our tours is built upon our climate positive principals. We strive to minimise the impact of greenhouse gas emissions generated by our tours and offset more emissions than we generate. Read more about our Climate Positive Programme.
