Your experienced driver/guide will provide an engaging and interesting commentary and a history of the various locations en route and will stop at many of the locations for photo opportunities and a more in-depth explanation at each of them. There will be some walking but only of a minimal and moderate nature.
As well as touring around the Old Town which will take in Edinburgh Castle, Greyfriars Graveyard, the Grassmarket, the Royal Mile, St. Giles Cathedral, John Knox House, the Palace of Holyrood House, the Scottish Parliament, the National Museum of Scotland, we will also travel into the New Town part of the city centre. To benefit from some of the most breathtaking 360 degree views of the city and beyond, your tour will take you around Arthur's Seat, a long extinct volcano which overlooks the city.
For those with the energy, there will also be an opportunity to walk to the top of Calton Hill for views over the Old and New Town side by side. If time permits and passengers would like to view any other parts of the city, your driver will be happy to accommodate any requests.
