Welcome to auld (old!) Edinburgh, where you’ll spend the better part of a day following your Edinburgh host through the quirky, cranky, swanky, antique streets of this utterly charming Scottish city.
But hush now, because they’ll be taking you on an experience off the tourist trail and sharing some local secrets - we won’t tell if you don’t.
Whether you’d like to visit a pub which comes with its own four-legged guardian, explore fascinating bookstores, uncover the oldest nooks in the most ancient of neighbourhoods or simply stroll through one of the parks that boasts the brisk beauty of the highlands - the day is yours to dictate!
Unfortunately, you can’t dictate the weather in Scotland - it’s a tricky little sucker. But no matter. Wrap up in your warmest plaid and venture boldly forth.
As the beating heart of the highlands, Edinburgh is full of folklore and traditions that date back to their pagan roots.
Discover poetry on the pavements and inspire hearty laughs from the locals. We just ken you’ll have a wonderful time!

Doug was a wonderful guide! He met us at our hotel and our tour truly gave us a local’s view of Edinburgh, away from the typical tourist sites! We learned so much about this historic city!
Our local host was amazing! We really had a good time and learned a lot.
This tour is a great way to kick start your time in Edinburgh. Roxanna is very knowledgeable and you will certainly love all the history she shares.
Enjoyed our tour with Michaela. She made the tour memorable. Highly recommend this tour and great job Michaela.
We had an outstanding half day tour with Michaela. We had never been to Edinburgh before and wanted the chance to take in some local history and see some sights off of the beaten path. We met Michaela after our tour of Edinburgh Castle. We were impressed with her knowledge of the city. She let us take the lead with anything that we wanted to see and do during the afternoon. She was able to show us the best places for souvenirs and the best places for whiskey tasting. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing afternoon with an excellent guide. Thanks so much!!
Just because it’s not here doesn’t mean we can’t offer it.
