What You'll Do
  • Explore the narrow lanes and alleys of Edinburgh's Royal Mile
  • Savor the panoramic views from Calton Hill
  • Experience both sides of the city - the medieval Old Town and Georgian era New Town
Join a fun and informative small group guided tour through Edinburgh's historic Old and New Town areas. Led by a local guide, tours begin in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle and finishes with panoramic views from Calton Hill.
What to Expect
Compare and contrast both sides of Edinburgh's historic city center with this small group tour which features many highlights from the city, along with a fun and informative commentary from a local independent guide. Find out how the city has changed and grown over the last 3,000 years, and hear stories about some of the people who have lived (and died) here.

Beginning in the medieval Old Town, the tour features iconic views of many of the city's must-see features, such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, St Giles Cathedral, Princes Street Gardens, the Scott Monument, and finishes with panoramic views from the top of Calton Hill.

All tours are limited to 10 persons to ensure you get a more personal tour experience than the larger city tours. Your guide is an adopted native of Edinburgh with over 18 years of experience living and working in the city, having trained as a guide with Edinburgh Bus Tours, and worked at Edinburgh Castle.
