Get to Know Your Guide Joe

"It would be my pleasure to take you on a journey through the country I love."

I am a graduate of Edinburgh University, where I achieved a BSc Hons in Molecular Biology and completed a post-graduate MBA and a Certificate of Higher Education.

I spent the majority of my career in the private sector, working in IT and IT research and advisory services for global companies. In short, I have experience of what it means to succeed. I also know that when people visit Scotland they are seeking something more than a superficial visit. They want to discover a rich cultural heritage and are only further inspired once they set eyes on the many sights in our cities and countryside.

It has always been a great passion of mine to promote Scotland to visitors who have travelled from overseas. This passion has become a vocation and I have turned it into a profession after being accepted onto the Scottish Tourist Guide Association's training course at Edinburgh University. Having successfully graduated I am now certified to cover Scotland in its entirety, and it has been a pleasure to do so.

I get great joy from guiding in Scotland, showing visitors our greatest assets like, cities, mountains and glens and the people that live here. I can provide an educational and entertaining experience for visitors with any interest with professionalism and a smile throughout.
