      Walking tours in Edinburgh
      Take the road less traveled

      With so much to see, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer scope of things. But on our walking tours in Edinburgh with local insiders, you don’t have to stick to the busy main roads of the iconic Old Town. Think of your host as your GPS and guidebook who can help you uncover secret paths leading to incredible attractions on your Edinburgh walking tours. Stumble across locations off the beaten track, like a 17th-century-style secret garden or a humble café serving melty cheese toasties. We want you to see the sights you didn’t even know existed on walking tours of Edinburgh with us.

      Walking tours in Edinburgh
      Enter the gateway to Scotch whisky

      What would a day in Edinburgh be without sampling a few wee drams of liquid gold? As the so-called “gateway to Scotch whisky”, Edinburgh is the place to be for the finest blends in the country – and you can try them all for yourself on our Edinburgh walking whisky tours. Our whisky-fueled Edinburgh walking tours will take you on a stroll down the length of the Royal Mile, a historic hub of entertainment where you’ll find single malt at its finest. But if your drink of choice is something different, our Edinburgh gin experience might be exactly what you’re looking for.

      Latest reviews from our guests

        Doug did a great job taking us around the city and was very thoughtful and courteous as we navigated the streets of Edinburgh. He was very knowledge and gave us a little bit of everything - history, food recommendations, Harry Potter titbits, bookstores, and more. My mom and I really enjoyed this tour and feel fortunate to have started our trip with this experience.

        Gwen crafted a personalized tour that was absolutely perfect for my grandson and myself. Her extensive knowledge of Edinburgh history, culture, art, and literature, as well as her personal love for the city, enhance the total experience. She held the attention of a 13-year-old boy on his first visit I could not have asked for a better morning.

        Gwen did a great job of showing me lots of places in old town I would have missed on my own and was solicitous of my welfare with the many steps, cobbles and crosswalks without lights. I had a wonderful time. It was a great introduction to Edinburgh, and she made some suggestions of places for me to see tomorrow.

        My mother is a very active octogenarian who wanted to tackle the Royal Mile and Gwen was so attentive and receptive to her needs and limits. We really enjoyed her customized tour with personal entertaining anecdotes about the places on and just off the beaten path. Getting to visit with a local made our trip so much better. Thank you Gwen.
