Darren’s 2,000 Tours Milestone
Things are a lot calmer in the office here at Auld Reekie Tours now that the excitement of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is over. The good news is that this means we are now able to thoroughly congratulate our longest-serving Tour Guide, Darren, on hitting 2,000 tours.
Darren was awarded with a bottle of champagne for his time given and the enthusiasm he has been bringing to the company ever since beginning with us back in 2012.
Darren was delighted to find out that he had reached this milestone and commented that the best aspects of his job over the years have been meeting new people from across the globe and being able to stay active so easily. Who needs a gym membership when you have the pleasure of marching up and down Fishmarket Close every day?
When asked what his best story from touring was, he had too many to choose from – but above all, he finds any incident that involves his group members getting genuinely frightened by his storytelling entertaining.
Congratulations, Darren! Catch him on any one of our guided walking tours the next time you visit Auld Reekie Tours in Edinburgh.
