About Me

Originally from Germany I have been living in Scotland for most of my life now. I'm a 'new Glaswegian' and saw Scotland's largest and most vibrant city flourish into the cultural hub and host of major events it is today. I also saw tourism get busier and busier and now specialise in calmer, deeper travel to less crowded places in our beautiful country. I still aim to create experiences, which turn my guests into 'raving fans' for Scotland, responsible travellers and a slower pace of life.


What's important to me?

Tourism for all – I welcome visitors of all abilities and enjoy guiding visitors with physical impairments and learning difficulties.


Sustainability – let’s enjoy Scotland today and keep it beautiful for generations to come. I follow the UNWTO motto Travel – Enjoy – Respect.


Teamwork - If I can’t help you I will try my best to find a colleague who can or is better suited for what you are looking for.


Let me show you the city and the country I love.
