Do the tours run every day?

Yes, our tours run every day regardless of the weather so please dress appropriately.

Where do the tours start?

It depends on the tour. Our Castle tours DO NOT MEET at the Castle. The Castle Tour meets outside the front of Café Nero, on the Royal Mile, by the statue of Adam Smith. We will be holding big green and white umbrellas so we will be nice and easy to spot.

If you are joining either our Old Town Tours or our Whisky and Folklore Tour then we meet at 15-19 Jeffery St in our Café Hot Toddy.

Why doesn’t the Castle Tour meet at the Castle?

Unfortunately Edinburgh Castle does not allow tour groups to meet on the espanade of the castle. This combined with the simplicity of a single start point for returning customers has the Castle Tour meeting at the Adam Smith Statue too.

How do I recognise the guide?

The guide will be stood holding a large green and white umbrella so we will be nice and easy to spot.

Where do the tours end?

The Castle Tour finishes in the Castle, the Museum Tour in the Museum, the Whisky Tour finishes in Hot Toddy Café. The Old Town Tour does not have a set finish location as each guide has their own route but will finish within a 10min walk of where the tour began.

How long do the tours run for?

Old Town, History & Tails Tour – two hours.

Castle Tour – one and a half hours.

Whisky and Folklore – two hours.

Are Children allowed on the tour?

Children are allowed on all of our tours except for the Whisky and Folklore Tour which is 18+. This is due to licensing in the UK.

What language are the tours run in?

All of our tours are delivered in English. A strong comprehension of the English language is required for full enjoyment of the tours. Our knowledgeable guides have a lot of information they would like to share with you.

Are pets allowed on the tour?

Well behaved pets may join the Old Town Tour and Whisky Tour but not the Castle Tour, this is due to regulations at the Castle.

Are your tours suitable for people with mobility issues?

The Old Town of Edinburgh sits on the side of an extinct volcano, the routes we take are often steep and on uneven ground. Our tours run for approximately two hours and you will be stood for the duration of the tour. We will try and accommodate everyone as best we can. The venue we are currently using for the Whisky Tour is unfortunately not accessible by wheelchair.

I want to join the Whisky & Folklore Tour but do not like whisky, can I drink something else?

Yes, you can. We like to think of the Whisky and Folklore Tour as being more of a cultural event with history and storytelling. The whisky is almost secondary. If you do not like whisky, drink alternatives including non-alcoholic drinks can be arranged for you. You can also join our tour without included drinks.

Will it be cold/wet/windy/snowy?

Most likely! Edinburgh sits on the same latitude as Moscow and even in the summer it can be wet and cool. Our tours will run no matter the weather so please take this into consideration before you join the tour.
