What you’ll do

Settled in the rocky hills of the highlands, 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 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).

Edinburgh City Unscripted, 4-hour

Finn, our guide, showed us very unique and very cool places in old town Edinburgh. Finn went above and beyond in treating us to a true Scottish experience, including a pub for a rest and a beer, and favorite little hole in the wall place that served Haggis. One of Finn’s hobbies is writing a sort of scavenger hunt book, taking people on a historical hunt for treasures, and thus a few of our visits were places featured in his book. We ended up at the Edinburgh Castle where we parted ways.

Great 4 hour tour in Edinburgh

We had a fantastic time with Olivia on our tour. She took us to all the important sites, and was flexible based on what we wanted to see. Very knowledgeable about all the artwork in the National Muséum as well. What a fantastic companion. We felt as though we made a new friend by the end of the tour!!! Makes our experience in Edinburgh very memorable.
