"A new and exciting virtual experience"

“Since our personal trip was, once again, postponed, this tour was a wonderful opportunity to spend a very informative 90+ minutes strolling thru Old Town. His time with us was full of information, wonderful antidotes and incredible stories.”

Visit Edinburgh from the comfort of your own home!

Are you planning a trip to Edinburgh?  Is it a place you’ve always dreamed of visiting but you haven’t been able to get here yet?  We’ve got a wee suggestion for you - try an Edinburgh virtual tour!

Our virtual tours of Edinburgh are perfect if you want to learn more about this beautiful city without actually being here.  They’re a great way to experience Scotland’s capital city without any of the worries and tribulations currently associated with travel.   We think they’re even better than reading about Scotland’s capital city because Robert will bring his history stories alive with personal insights and anecdotes from years of experience as a local guide.  Remember, with each virtual tour; you’ve got our award-winning Edinburgh tour guide running it ‘live’!


Each Edinburgh online experience requires a device that can run Zoom.  Zoom is a free app, and you don’t even need a webcam or microphone.  You can have up to three devices connected to your private tour at any one time, so it’s perfect for families or groups of friends.  Your Edinburgh virtual tour is private; the guide and your group are the only people on the Zoom call.  These virtual tours typically last between an hour and an hour and a half, so you’ll get to see all the places which will help tell our stories.

Each of our virtual tours of Edinburgh has been adapted from our actual Edinburgh walking tours.  Historic Edinburgh Tours is a five-star rated company on Tripadvisor and has won multiple awards.

Your Edinburgh tour guide will be 'live' on all our virtual tours.
