Explore the landscape, architecture and history of both sides of Edinburgh's historic city centre on a private tour with a knowledgeable and experienced local guide, specialising in small group and private walking tours since 2014.

From kilts and kings to glaciers and volcanoes, hear stories of the people who have lived (and died) in the city, and find out how it has changed over the last 900 years.

From the medieval lanes of the Old Town to the wide terraces of the Georgian-era New Town, this two- or three-hour tour offers a fun and informative introduction to the contrasting sides of this historic city.

No costumes, no gimmicks, no ghost stories (well, maybe one), just fact-based tales of Edinburgh's history from a local guide with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Tour starts and finishes at the bottom of Granny's Green Steps at the west end of the Grassmarket.

Available as either a two- or three-hour route.
