If you want to explore historic ‘Old Edinburgh’ in two hours then this is the perfect private tour for your group.
Your private Royal Mile tour
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Take your own private Royal Mile tour and ensure you make the most of your time exploring Edinburgh’s fascinating history. Edinburgh is a great city to discover walking! If you can handle the gradients of the Old Town, then you’re in for a treat. The only problem is knowing what to see, where it is and working out what might have happened at the various places you’ll visit. Sometimes it’s also hard to know exactly what to look at. With our private guided tour, you’ll get an intimate view of Old Edinburgh’s past in the company of a local Edinburgh tour guide.  He’ll be dressed smartly in a traditional kilt to give you a real flavour of Scottish culture, and he’s an expert in the places you will visit. The Royal Mile tour is a great way to discover Edinburgh’s history and is customised to match times which suit your holiday in Scotland’s capital city. A private tour of the Royal Mile provides you the best possible way to experience Old Edinburgh’s history. Put the (many) guidebooks away and come with us as we reveal the closes and wynds which so many tourists walk past without even realising their significance in history. We’ve been described as expert storytellers, and we do our best to help you imagine the Royal Mile as it once was. We will bring the buildings, people, and historic events back to life with our carefully researched and well-told stories. So put your maps and guidebooks to one side, bring your cameras and allow us to reveal the rich tapestry of Edinburgh’s history. Our tours feature some of Edinburgh’s most famous stories, backed up by images from our archive collection. Although much of the Old Town has changed dramatically since the late Victorian times, there is still enough of ‘Old Edinburgh’ remaining to let you imagine the past, but only if you know where to look! We do, and it’s our job to, take you to some of these often-missed closes and wynds. It’s a job we love to do and for which we plan meticulously. Please contact melanie@historicedinburghtours.co.uk to discuss the details of your private Royal Mile tour.

“Lots of rave reviews next morning at breakfast. All said they wished they'd had Robert as their history teacher in school! Loved how you wove the story together and brought the characters to life. THANK YOU once again for sharing your talents as a storyteller and passion as an historian!”
