Jaqi Welsh

Languages:

I have being guiding at home and abroad for 21 years now, I qualified as a Blue Badge Guide in English and German in 2002 and this has been my main job ever since.
Every day is different in my job, I love that I always get to meet new people and show off Scotland to them.
Due to having a large family, and a very large dog, I now only work from Edinburgh doing airport transfers, city tours and full day excursions.
I am happy to take on all kinds of work, from private walking tours for couples and individuals to step on guiding for coach tours as well as working in the conference and incentive market.
I don't use a car for driver guiding, I do, however, work with a coach company who will hire out a vehicle with driver from 8 seats to 59 seats for me to work with.
