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.




Raised in a small town in Germany, Markus, the son of Scottish mother discovered his love for the motherland at a very early age. He expressed this by learning to play the bagpipes at the age of ten and exploiting Ryanair to visit his grandmother in Scotland every school holiday. After University graduation Markus worked in Austria, France and China for a few years until he decided to return to the motherland to push his academic career further. By becoming a tour guide Markus was able to put his fascination for history and his talent for storytelling in good use.
