What you'll do

Join a like-minded Local Host and immerse yourself in the very best of Edinburgh for a day! Be it shopping on Princes Street or strolling through the Meadows, experience the most famous attractions and discover the hidden gems tucked away in the winding alleys!Read more +


On your fully personalised experience, visit the top sights you’d love to tick off your Edinburgh bucket list as well as visiting the authentic spots that are recommended by your Local Host, giving you a unique insider’s perspective on life in the city that you wouldn’t find in a guidebook. 

Stop for lunch at a cafe, restaurant or street food market recommended by your Local Host, a spot where you can try authentic local cuisine and which suits your preferences, budget and dietary requirements. In the afternoon, you may want to slow down (and warm up!) with a coffee or a wee dram at a neighbourhood cafe or bar that your local loves.

Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of Edinburgh that you will love.


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.
