  • Take a hike to Edinburgh’s heights – as the city “built on seven hills”, get your heart pumping as you learn about its development from volcanoes to “Athens of the North”. Arthur’s Seat, Salisbury Crags and Calton Hill are only the starting point!
  • Explore further afield with fascinating insights into the historic yet innovative old port of Leith.
  • Enjoy some peace away from the hubbub with a visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens or the pretty Dean Village before ending the day in one of upmarket Stockbridge’s restaurants or bars.
  • Whet your appetite with Scottish delicacies in some of Edinburgh’s best-loved yet lesser-known cafes and pubs.
  • Expand your culinary horizons on one of our unique food and drink tours, meeting the producers and exploring the history and culture behind Scotland’s extraordinary natural larder.


Depending on your preferences, your tour may last half a day or more – we will discuss this at the time of booking.
