Welcome to the beating heart of the highlands, where sea meets sky and ancient monuments perch atop rocky crags.

Follow one of our Edinburgh hosts as you explore Edinburgh’s stunning natural surroundings together, from trails up Arthur’s Seat to catch sight of the city from above, to the windswept coastal paths.

Tackle the imposing hillsides, stroll through the quiet glades or simply enjoy a lazy afternoon in one of the city’s parks. 

The Meadows is a popular picnic destination, as is Holyrood Park, where you can stretch out on a blanket and bask in the happy sounds of friends gathering, balls being kicked around (mind your head) and dogs being walked.

Perhaps you and your host would like to visit the Botanical Gardens together, where you can get a comprehensive feel for the kinds of flora that naturally occur in this part of the world?

Scotland’s natural beauty has inspired many myths - ask your host to share a few tales of auld with you, and as the bagpipes carry across the wind, you’ll be transported back in time.

A New Best Friend

Sarah was the single most wonderful tour guide I have had in my lifetime of travelling (36 countries & counting)! My boyfriend and I toured Edinburgh with her for an afternoon, and she was very knowledgeable and friendly! We learned so much about the city in our 4 hours with her. In the end, it felt like we truly made a new best friend. I cannot say enough about Sarah and highly recommend her for anyone looking for a fun and informative tour guide while in Scotland. Grazie mille, Sarah!

Learning about Edinburgh

I took a full day private tour of Edinburgh with Roxana. I had a great day learning all kinds of interesting details about the city. Edinburgh is full of mystery and beauty, almost trapped in time. Roxana's passion for the city brought this all to life. with great stories and special locations, I learned as much as I enjoyed. CityUnscripted was also great with the booking process and were quick to reply to all my questions. I recommend using them and asking for Roxana, you won't be disappointed.

Must see Edinburgh with a local

I had a great full day private tour with Roxana my guide. I can honestly say I learned a lot about both Edinburgh and medieval history. All in all it was a wonderful experience. Thanks

Child-Friendly Tour with a Local Friend

My family and I (husband and two daughters ages 9 and 11) really enjoyed our walking tour with Alana. She is lovely to spend time with and was so interesting to talk to. She showed us all the places we requested and told us things about Edinburgh that we certainly would not know if we were not locals. I highly recommend going on a tour with her!
