Can you imagine a tour that spans the past and present? A tour to help you to discover the history of the city, and also provide you with the best insider tips for making the most of your time here?

Follow us into the cobblestone streets of the Old Town, as we explore the Royal Mile and its hidden labyrinth of alleyways!

See the Mercat Cross, a meeting point for merchants and minstrels, and discover how thieves were punished there. Admire St Giles’ Cathedral, and learn about the controversy and power struggles that came with the Church Reformation. Meet the most famous philosopher of the Enlightenment period, and find out which of your favourite books were written by Scottish authors. Take in spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle and wander down the iconic Victoria Street – or is it Diagon Alley? Hear about the grisly executions that took place in the Grassmarket. See the city’s most famous cemetery, Greyfriars Kirkyard, and discover the story of Greyfriars Bobby, the city’s most beloved dog.

As a UNESCO World Heritage site, visiting the Old Town is like taking a walk through history, in this beautiful city, one of the most unique places you’ll ever visit. It’s a journey through time, in a place where the buildings seem to be alive with stories. We know these stories, so let us share them with you!
