What to Expect
The Royal Mile is the backbone of Edinburgh's medieval Old Town, and this walking tour takes you along and around the full length of the route, weaving in and out of the narrow lanes and alleys, starting at the Palace of Holyroodhouse and finishing outside Edinburgh Castle.

Highlights include the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the new Scottish Parliament building, St Giles Cathedral, and Edinburgh Castle along with lesser known features such as the Canongate Kirk, Cowgate, and George IV Bridge. Soak up the atmosphere of this historic city as you hear stories of the people who have lived in these streets over the last 900 years, and capture images of the iconic Old Town as you walk through the heart of the medieval city.

All tours are limited to 10 persons, to give you a more personal tour experience than the larger tour companies, and are led by an experienced and knowledgeable local guide with over 18 years experience of living and working in the city.
