      Take the road less traveled

      With so much to see, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer scope of things.

      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.

        Our group of 3 had a most wonderful time with Gwen Kinghorn. Before our trip, Gwen reached out to see what our interests are and check for special requests. She adjusted her normal tour so we could end at the castle at noon to coincide with our entry tickets. Gwen meet us at our hotel and we spent the morning touring Edinburgh. Gwen is very knowledgeable and took us to many spots not normally visited by tourists. I would strongly recommend her and give her 5 well deserved stars.

        Our walking tour with Gwen was amazing. So full of useful information and history of the city. Her recommendations proved very useful for the future days we stayed in the city. Her grasp of the rich history was impressive & intelligence impressive. Thank you so much for pairing her with us.
