“Wow! What a guy, we booked this two hour Canongate evening history tour prior to our first visit to Edinburgh after reading his excellent reviews BUT it's even better than first class if that's possible! …(If) our school history lesson had been this interesting we may have gained an A* !” Jo B- Tripadvisor - June 2018
TRIPADVISOR REVIEWS = 100% WERE 5 STAR REVIEWS
“Our guide, Robert was very knowledgeable, both of the area and local history. Having lived in Edinburgh for nearly 50 years, l visited places that night l had never been before, seen things l hadn't even noticed (despite walking past them on a daily basis) and learnt something about my own city. Go on this at least once, whether you're a local or a visitor to the city, you won't be disappointed. My only complaint was that it only lasted just under 2 hours, l could've listened to this guy talking all evening.” Sean B- TripAdvisor - August 2015

TRIPADVISOR REVIEW OF THE ROYAL MILE TOUR

WHAT HAVE OUR GUESTS SAID?

Our 'Good to Go' certification from Visit Britain.
Edinburgh’s Royal Mile is quite possibly the most historic street in all of Scotland. With Edinburgh Castle at the top and the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Holyrood Abbey at the bottom, the Royal Mile was the scene of many momentous events. Robert, our local Edinburgh tour guide, went to university on the Royal Mile and is ready to take you in and around the side streets, closes and wynds, which many visitors miss. Edinburgh was Scotland’s capital city for hundreds of years, and the Royal Mile was her busiest and most important road One street. One award-winning guide. Hundreds of years of Scotland’s history.
Stop 1 - Dynamic Earth. The topography of Old Edinburgh and why this is an 'experiential' tour! Stop 2 - Abbey Strand. Holyrood and the murder of David Rizzio. Stop 3 - White Horse Close. Heritage and history - a Canongate 'Then and Now.' Stop 4 - View to the Scottish Parliament. Learn about the issues which we talk about in today's Scotland. Stop 5 - Bakehouse Close.
