We took the Edinburgh tour on April 25, 2017 with Sabella as our tour guide. She was an excellent presenter, was very informative, and gave several little known insider stories that made Edinburgh come alive for us. We were very happy to provide an ample...More

Our guide was Josh who, as he put it, is "as English as Stephen Fry pouring tea on a Harry Potter book". However, this was insignificant. As someone who had never been to Edinburgh before, I was overwhelmed by the size of the city and...More

We were lucky enough to Fiona randomly allocated as our guide. It adds a little something to have a guide with a Scottish accent on your tour. But Fiona brought much more than that. She has years of experience and knows her stuff. She made...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

Hello How do we join the free walking tour? We will arrive Edinburgh by train at noon on June 1. Will an afternoon suffice? Thank you.

Hi Chris! It depends on each guide - whether they are happy to carry out the tour with dogs. However, it usually isn't a problem! Just be sure to inform our meeting point managers (or the guides themselves) when you arrive... More
