Settled in the rocky hills, Edinburgh offers everything from beautiful architecture (notably the university and parliament buildings) to stunning landscapes, and everything in between. 

You’ll join one of our Edinburgh hosts, and from here it’s up to you if you’d like to strut your stuff down the Royal Mile, or pay homage at the Scott Monument? Are you a landmark beeliner, or a leisurely wanderer? Just tell us your pace and we’ll stick to it. 

In a few hours you could explore a single neighbourhood thoroughly, like the historic stone buildings of the Old Town, or perhaps drop in at a local pub and listen to the bartender tell you all about Scotland’s history and the folklore that trickles through into city’s culture today.

Fall in love with this timeless relic of days gone by, and enjoy your host’s great company (we’re a little biased, but they really are great company).
