Why Us?

Great Question!

There are a lot of tour companies in Edinburgh, so why should you book a tour with us? We truly believe that we are quite simply the best. The best quality for our guests as well as the best working environment for our staff. We are locally formed, we offer competitive pay and we are positively involved in our community. All of the above is evident in our excellent reviews, our happy staff and our good reputation in Edinburgh.

FAIR IS FAIR

Little Fish Tours is a Living Wage Employer helping to ensure a dedicated and loyal team. Our guides, being freelancer are paid competitive rates which are usually above those of our competitors.

EXCELLENT GUIDES

They come from a diverse range of backgrounds from the acting theatre to the medical theatre but they all share one passion, storytelling. We aim to bring the history of Edinburgh alive through the art of storytelling, being both informative and entertaining. It’s not easy having (and keeping) such excellent guides, but it is simple. Competitive rates and a positive work environment ensure this.

INNOVATION

Additionally, we try to be innovative. We have launched unique products such as our Whisky and Folklore Tour and our History of Scotland Tour in the National Museum of Scotland. This keeps us unique and passionate about our work ensuring that our guests have an excellent experience with us.

SUSTAINABILE TOURISM

However, this innovative approach stretches beyond the products that we offer. Little Fish Tours is also helping lead the way to create Edinburgh’s first multi operator organisation. Bringing all the main tour companies of Edinburgh together, for the first time, to find positive approaches to sustainable tourism. This is an ever-increasing concern in tourism hotspots. At Little Fish Tours we aim to be part of the solution, rather than a part of the problem

AWARDS

We have also received multiple awards from various platforms and bodies such as Get Your Guide and Trip Advisor.

After a few years he decided to return to his father’s homeland of Scotland, mostly for the mountains and the whisky.

Angus brings an infectious interest in history and culture to all his tours. His excellent knowledge is evident and so is his theatrical background resulting in an excellent guide.
