"Having spent most of my youth in the hospitality industry, I became a Tour Director many years ago. Originally from Edinburgh, I enjoy showing travelers Britain and Ireland-from Land's End and John O'Groats to Giant's Causeway and Waterford. It fills me with so much pride to show off the countries and tell the stories of my ancestors to our guests."
