Eat walk Edinburgh offer two Food walking tours. One explores Edinburgh's Old & New towns and the other the lower half of the Royal Mile called the Canongate. On each of these tours you will visit unusual/hidden restaurants, bars and shops. There will be five food tastings and three drink tastings on the tour. The guide will talk about the history of the area as you walk between venues. The Old & new Town tour (1pm-4.30pm) which has five food stops with a Edinburgh Raspberry Gin, Scottish beer and a single cask malt whisky tasting ensuring you will not need to worry about dinner in the evening. The Canongate tour (10am-1pm) enjoys six stops including a Bloody Mary cocktail and breakfast canapes to get the tour off and running. By the end there will be no need for lunch. The Old & New town tour was recommended in BBC Good Food Magazine as a "Don't miss" thing to do in Edinburgh. Delicious magazine also has it down as a must do.

My husband and I loved the authenticity of this food tour. We had never been to Scotland and loved trying more authentic dishes (and delicious!). Our tour guide was great and we loved the way he made the history piece so fun.

Perfect way to sample some of the local delicacies without ordering a meal! Our guide was so knowledgeable. Wear your walking shoes, you cover a good sized area and take many sights along the way! Highly recommended.

Thanks for reviewing our tour We encourage people to wear comfortable shoes as we do walk from the Edinburgh Old Town to the New Town. We do it in manageable stages using the venues to provide a chance to refresh and enjoy.

It's a great - and not least active - way to get a better overview of Edinburgh and it's history. The inclusion of various local specialities (drinks, food) makes it even more interesting!More

But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
