Category: News

Providing coach guides for the first time, award-winning tour company Mercat Tours is preparing for the most diverse year of business yet in 2014.

Operating tours of the Royal Mile since 1985, the Edinburgh- based family business is responding to the increasing demand for city tour, multi-day coach guides and tour directors from agents and tour operators.

Following a highly successful recruitment campaign and National Thistle Award for Skills Development and Training in 2013, Mercat will now cater for more UK and International travel trade needs than ever before.

Applying their knowledge and expertise of operating tours to develop and offer extended coach guiding services was a natural development for the business:

‘After working with DMCs, travel trade and operators for many years, we have strong relationships to build upon – we’ll work hard to deliver the exceptional customer care, reliability and flexibility we are known for and the travel trade expect.’


Kat Brogan, Head of Development.

Recent sales trips with VisitScotland’s Business Tourism Unit have involved Mercat showcasing their storytelling and guiding services in London, Paris and Hamburg.

Mercat will be exhibiting at stand G30, VisitScotland’s EXPO trade show event in Glasgow 2nd – 3rd April 2014.
