Edinburgh's Old Town

 Edinburgh Walking Tours 

Explore Scotland's history with our private tours of Edinburgh 

“Having lived in Edinburgh almost my whole life and taken many tours with visiting friends, I am more than familiar with the main sights and stories of the old town. This was such a different perspective to take, I learned a great deal and explored a few back courts and closes that I had never seen in almost 50 years of living in and around the city. Highly recommend”

Our Edinburgh walking tours are a great way to explore Scotland's capital city

Edinburgh is a beautiful city with a rich history, but even for the most ardent history lover,  it's easy to feel overwhelmed.


Let us show you the best of the Old Town on our award-winning Edinburgh walking tours.

Most people only see the surface of Edinburgh - the famous tourist spots like Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. But if you want to really understand this city, you need to go deeper.  Our private tours of Edinburgh are the perfect way to discover the city's hidden secrets.  

Our knowledgeable and entertaining Edinburgh tour guide, Robert,  will wear a traditional kilt for your private tour, and he will share his passion for his city with you.

All of our tours have an average rating of five stars on Tripadvisor.  In addition, we have won multiple Certificate of Excellence awards.  Each of our guided tours uses the same Edinburgh tour guide, so you know you will get the quality of tour you deserve.
