Tour guides & Guided tours
For first time visitors, or those simply looking for more detailed local information during their stay, Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire have a number of Blue Badge tour guides. Our tour guides offer trips around the city centre as well as accompanying larger groups on excursions in Aberdeenshire.
Hidden Aberdeen Tours are a great way to get to know the history (and bloody history) of our Granite City. Tours cover themes including the Murder History, Old Aberdeen Ghosts and Ghouls, Forgotten Fittee and The Old King’s Highway.
For groups wishing to spend a day, or two, or three, exploring Aberdeenshire many tour guides will escort you on your trip giving you a fully guided tour as well as planning your itinerary – this may incorporate a trip to a castle, whisky distillery, coast, countryside and of course, some sampling of our local produce.
Many of our visitor attractions including castles, whisky distilleries and museums also offer a variety of guided tours equipping you with the full facts and local knowledge desired. Our eight distilleries and nearby famous distilleries offer tours as well as whisky sampling and our castles tell the rich history of the areas colourful past!
