Join us on an exploration of the top of the historic Royal Mile here in Edinburgh.

The tour begins in front of Edinburgh Castle with stories of sieges and battles, kings and queens, as well as some mysteries. As we head down Castlehill, you will be enthralled with the lives of witches and wizards - both real and fictional. Afterwards, be amazed by the tales and views of the picturesque Victoria Street. Next we mingle with the locals, both past and present, at the Grassmarket.

Finally, we make our way up to Greyfriars Kirkyard, where more history awaits us. Here you get to meet our best friend in Edinburgh - Greyfriars Bobby. We separate the fiction and falsehoods from the facts, but we promise that you will be moved as Bobby's story will imprint on your heart and soul!

So, get your tissues ready for this heartwarming tour and book it now! If your schedule allows it, please check out our longer tour options.
