What you'll do
Follow the unique route through the capital which your Local Host has designed specifically to take in your chosen interests and include a few secret local spots along the way!
Stop for a coffee or grab some street food at one of Edinburgh's farmers markets; your guide will choose somewhere that suits your preferences, budget and dietary requirements which will give you a taste of local cuisine.
Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the rest of your trip, helping you to discover other areas of Edinburgh that they know you’ll love, as well as sharing their local travel hacks so you won’t fall into the tourist traps!
What To Expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality and interests so we can assign a like-minded local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local Host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local Host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local Host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.

I would definitely recommend a private tour with Richard.
I had a lovely time, during my private tour in Edinburgh this morning. My local tourguide Richard Duffy is a very nice man, with who I could talk and laugh a lot. He told me many things about Edinburgh and we decided together what we were gonna do and see. It was a wonderful, kind of Unscottish warm day and that even made it more beautiful. Saw the most gorgeous views, while Richard explained everything we saw. He also was very interested in who I am and how I got to Edinburgh. Richard, start watch Outlander. You won't regret it.

Sarah was absolutely brilliant and engaged our 11yr grandson immediate
In our Grandson's words, " That was really good!" High praise from an 11yr old! It was a highlight of our 2 month trip. Sarah was engaging and incorporated her experiences from her performance background to create a tour that included ghost stories and tales of intrigue and betrayal. We learned so much in our short time with her, we now need to book a return trip and tour!
