Edinburgh, a city full of history, culture, and the perfect place to learn everything about the Scottish national drink and taste some of the best single malts. Edinburgh's New Town whisky tour is an opportunity to walk away from the crowded city centre while enjoying good quality scotch through four off the beaten bars. Although you may find some fantastic venues in the old town, this part of the city has really cool places that you probably wouldn’t find in a common tourist guide.

Edinburgh's New Town whisky tour is one of our most beloved experiences in Scotland. Not only because it is a good way to spend your time in this beautiful city, but also because there is no such a thing as visiting Scotland’s capital city and not get the best of its whisky. Come join us in our whisky tour through some of the nicest whisky bars that the Scottish capital has to offer.

Please, bring your electronic ticket, comfortable walking shoes, and weather appropriate clothing.
