During the following weeks, our tours (except the Pub Crawl) will temporarily be starting a little further up the Royal Mile; right in front of the Frankie and Benny’s restaurant (130 High Street, Royal Mile - Edinburgh, EH1 1QS). Please keep an eye out for the guides with the red SANDEMANs’ umbrella. Thank you for your understanding.




Hailing and raining from Wales, Richard is the typical Celtic character but with a varied and colourful background. After studying his Undergraduate degree at Cardiff University, Richard became an Insurance Underwriter at the age of 22, but decided he wanted to salvage his soul and whisked himself away  to the wonderful capital of whiskey, to study a Master’s degree in British and Irish History at the University of Edinburgh. Wanting further adventure Richard headed to Berlin and became a tour guide wandering the modern German metropolis. However Richard harked for the old meandering maze of Edinburgh and its ancient splendours, so he returned to tell the tantalising tales of Edinburgh to travellers from around the world.
