Greyfriars Bobby.
“Robert put together a two- hour bespoke walking tour for me and my husband. It formed an invaluable start to my research into the old town during the Victorian period, which is the setting for my next children's book. Robert is extremely knowledgeable about Edinburgh's history and a very personable, eloquent guide who avoids the sensationalism of the typical tourist patter. I'd absolutely recommend one of his tours - you won't regret it!” Sharonnewell01 TripAdvisor review - 17/10/2018
If you are looking for a very special Edinburgh experience one which covers locations or stories which are of particular interest to your group, we are here to deliver! We can tailor our existing tours or research entirely new ones so that we meet the specifications your guests want. We’ve already crafted completely new walksfor a variety of guests including a major Edinburgh school, groups of friends travelling to one of their ‘bucket list’ locations and members of a literary society. We would be honoured to create your perfect private tour.
“JUST BRILLIANT! I booked a private 3-hour tour with Robert - it was fantastic value for money and it really made my trip to Edinburgh even more special and memorable! Robert is a passionate expert, and delivered all these wonderful and fascinating stories about Scottish-Edinburgh history in such a mesmerising and humorous way… I booked Robert after reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor and am so glad I did. Don't even think about - just do it!” ripAdvisor review by MissSerenity - October 2016

PRIVATE EDINBURGH GUIDED TOUR

WE CAN COVER THE CLASSIC

EDINBURGH STORIES - AND A

LOT MORE!

Your very own tour can cover whatever you want. Although we’re primarily a history tour company, we can put together walks which would suit people who want to see the sights of the Old and New Towns. We can also research and plan a much more in-depth tour, one which focuses entirely on the subject, or location, of your choice. It’s your tour, and we love adding to our knowledge!

YOUR HIGHLY RATED

EDINBURGH GUIDE

Your local Edinburgh guide has an average rating of five-stars on TripAdvisor (as of September 2019) and will escort your group on a bespoke tour of the Old Town, or further afield! We’ve been taking groups of varying sizes for over six years and have won awards for the quality and presentation of our tours. We've won two TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence in the last three years.

EDINBURGH IS A GREAT CITY

TO WALK IN

In Edinburgh, it is tricky knowing what to see, and it’s even harder to imagine the historical events that happened at the various places you’ll visit. Sometimes it’s also difficult to know what to look for. On your guided walk, you’ll get an intimate view of the city’s past and present. Your local guide will be dressed smartly in a traditional kilt to give you a real flavour of Scottish culture, and he’s incredibly knowledgeable about the places you will visit.

WE’LL SHOW YOU FAMOUS

SIGHTS…AND HIDDEN

SURPRISED!

A customised guided walk gives you a great way to experience the city’s history. Many of our TripAdvisor reviews have described us as expert storytellers, and we will help you imagine Edinburgh as it once was. We will bring the buildings, people, and historical events back to life with our carefully researched and well-told stories. So put your guidebooks to one side, bring your cameras and allow us to reveal the rich tapestry of Edinburgh’s history.
