What you’ll do

You’ll spend a few hours following your Edinburgh host around the beautiful city of Edinburgh, as they create a route for you that is just as unique as your family is!

Edinburgh is infinitely walkable thanks to its compact size, so not to worry about little legs getting tired. You and your tribe will love winding your way through the cobbled streets of Old Town. It feels just like something out of the middle ages, only with much better food.

Visit Edinburgh Castle if you’re feeling feudal, or if the heavens open (which they invariably do), check out an interactive museum.

If there’s energy to burn off, why not take a trip to Holyrood Park and climb Arthur’s Seat?

When you get hungry your host will take you to a cosy eatery, where the youngsters can tuck into a tasty, authentic Scottish meal.

They’ll be sure to take note of any dietary needs and don’t worry, we know that “fussy eater” is a completely legitimate requirement with kids - although maybe you’ll want to try some haggis and hear the legend of the haggis bird! 

Pack your bag(pipes), kick back, and let us help you create special memories with your family to last a lifetime!

Great experience and guide

Sarah was a fabulous local host. She showed us all the sights of Edinburgh and gave us lots of interesting history and stories along the way. She was very flexible in what we did and where we went to meet our needs. If you book this experience ask for Sarah.
