WHAT YOU’LL SEE

Each of our guides brings their own unique style and interests to their tours. We have allowed our guides the most freedom on our Old Town Tour. Because of this each tour covers slightly different topics. We believe that giving our knowledgeable guides this freedom increases their ability to offer the best tour possible. These topics may include, but are not limited to;

The Mercat Cross, St Giles Cathedral*, David Hume and the Scottish enlightenment, The National Museum*, Greyfriars Bobby, Some Harry Potter inspirations, The Grassmarket, Edinburgh Castle* and cultural information including food and drink and Scottish customs.

*From the outside

Missed out on something? As mentioned before, all our guides cover different topics and they may not cover all that is mentioned above. If something you would like to learn about is missed, be sure to ask your knowledgeable guide about it.

Our guides are among the best in the industry. Although not compulsory, gratuities are very welcome at the tours end. This ensures the highest possible quality tour.
