      From cliffside castles and whisky distilleries to all-night entertainment and astounding natural beauty, exploring the world-famous attractions in Scotland’s hilly capital is easy – but uncovering all the best-kept secrets in this compact cityscape (of which there are several) is only possible on private guided tours in Edinburgh.

      Edinburgh private tours
      More than the top 10 sights

      Because the city’s tourist trail spans so many miles of world-renowned attractions, Edinburgh private tours can easily get you caught in a tourist trap before you even realize it. But take the paths less traveled – the ones your guidebook doesn’t even know about – and private walking tours of Edinburgh reveal a city with unequaled charm and charisma. We won’t make you miss out on any of the must-sees on your bucket list, but we’ll be sure to show you some of the hidden haunts and lesser-known landmarks loved by your local host on Edinburgh private tours you won’t soon forget.

        I booked a walking tour for my toddler, tween & myself. As you can imagine, it’s quite hard to find something that interests all of us but Jen managed it! My daughter learnt more in 2 hours than she does in her school history lessons. It was perfectly tailored to us and such good fun! She really knows her history & Harry Potter if you are into that. We will definitely book Jen when we return to Edinburgh.

        Yesterday we did a tour with Gwen and we visited Edinburgh. Since the first moment she was very nice with us and she was very involved. She has experience and she knows the city and its history very well. We are very happy because she was explaining all and showed a lot of places. She’s very kind with us. Thank you so much. Sincerely. Luz Ibáñez
