This tour is popular with visitors who have a full day to visit all of the major landmarks of Edinburgh's Old and New Towns. Your driver/guide provides a running commentary and makes frequent stops at the various landmarks.
The aim of this tour is to show you as many of the sights of Edinburgh as possible during the 8 hours that the tour will last.
Because this tour lasts around 8 hours, it allows more flexibility for visitors to choose what they would like to visit. We understand that every group will have different requirements for their tour. So let us know what you are keen to see and we can put an itinerary together for you.
However, we will aim to ensure that your tour will take in the Old Town of Edinburgh, including stops at the Grassmarket, infamous for executions, George Heriot's school, the inspiration for JK Rowling's Hogwarts.
Then we will make our way to the start of the Royal Mile, stopping at Gladstone's Land, Deacon Brodies, the Heart of Midlothian, St Giles Cathedral, Mary King's Close, the Old Tollbooth, the Canongate Kirk, the Palace of Holyrood House, and Arthur's Seat.
From there, we will then take in the splendor and elegance of the New Town and the Dean Village where you will see why the wealthy inhabitants of the city moved there in the 18th century.
If you wish to visit inside any of the major attractions such as Edinburgh Castle, the Palace of Holyrood House or the Royal Yacht Britannia, then let us know and we see how it fits into the overall schedule.
