What you’ll do

Welcome to Edinburgh!

Don’t worry about getting lost, looking lost or feeling lost, because one of our Edinburgh hosts has got you covered.

You will spend a few hours with them orientating yourself in this beautiful, antique city that just has so much to offer - from quirky bookshops to cosy pubs, and the poetry-inscribed streets in between. 

Perched atop crags and blending seamlessly into its environment, Edinburgh has captured our hearts, and we know it will capture yours too!

With a little help from your host, you’ll be able to tell your lochs from your hillocks in no time. Let them show you the best ways to get around, or perhaps you’d prefer to take in a few of the city’s main attractions together?

Lord it over the city in Edinburgh Castle, strut your stuff down the Royal Mile or simply just explore your neighbourhood together, finding some obscure spots that make you giddy with excitement.

Whatever you like, this experience is about finding your feet in the highland’s heart and kickstarting your trip to Edinburgh.
