      Edinburgh Food Tour
      Explore the culinary culture

      Don’t be fooled by Edinburgh’s unpretentious attitude. There’s a lot more to the city than Scottish shortbread and deep-fried everything. A walk through the storybook city center reveals a wealth of places to eat on Edinburgh food tours, from family-run restaurants to upmarket eateries. Over the past few years, Edinburgh has quietly been transforming into a culinary capital in its own right, with a new generation of independent restaurants taking the Scottish classics and elevating them to new heights. There’s never been a better time to soak up the city’s food scene than right now.

You don’t have to go to one of the best restaurants in Edinburgh for a food experience you’ll never forget.

      Edinburgh Food Tour
      Let the games be gin (and whisky)!

      What would a day in Edinburgh be without sampling its world-renowned liquid gold? As the “gateway to Scotch whisky”, Edinburgh is the place to be for the finest blends in the country – and you can try several of them for yourself on our Edinburgh food tours. You know about Scotland’s whisky reputation, but did you know its gin scene is also rising up the ranks? Instead of washing down your haggis with a dram of whisky, you could explore the city’s independent gin distilleries instead. The way we see it, there’s no reason food tours of Edinburgh shouldn’t end in a tipple or two!

      Latest reviews from our guests

        I visited Edinburgh for the first time this August, and I was looking for a private tour. This one was everything I was looking for. Brian was knowledgeable and fun to talk to. We spent half the day walking around and talking history, which was fantastic.

        We had a wonderful time trying out various Scottish foods and seeing the Royalmile. It was an excellent way to start off our vacation. Roxanne was a lovely guide and it was fun to hear stories about the origins of the food and the places we visited

        We had the best time with Gwen, our food guide. She was fantastic telling us about the foods and history. She was so sweet. We tried so many dishes and learned a lot about Scotland. Great way to start our trip.

        My wife Barbara and I just visited the delightful city of Edinburgh with City Unscripted, tour guide Gwen. This was our second experience with City Unscripted. Both experts were fantastic. In both cases the guides were highly knowledgeable of the city. They had obviously spent a significant time preparing for our visit. They asked questions on our interests in advance so were right on target with a detailed plan. It was well executed. Gwen was personable, professional, and charming in every respect. She stirred our interest in the destination to the point we’re already planning our next visit. 5 Stars? YES!!!
