Private Edinburgh Walking Tours

Make the most of your time in the vibrant and historic city of Edinburgh with a private tour that's tailor-made to your interests and led by an independent, local guide.

From an introduction to the city to a more in-depth look at its history, a private walking tour is one of the best ways to get up-close-and-personal with Edinburgh and what it has to offer.

With its diverse architecture, rich cultural heritage, fantastic foodie experiences, stunning views and dramatic landscape Edinburgh has plenty to offer. Take a tour of the atmospheric Old Town, the elegant Georgian New Town or, for those who wish to explore beyond the city centre, Edinburgh has a number of quieter local neighbourhoods with their own history and heritage.

Whether you choose one of my fixed-route tours, or go bespoke for complete flexibility, each tour is personally guided by me and is created to provide a mix of Edinburgh's iconic highlights as well as hidden corners and less well-known spots.

My home for over 30 years I think Edinburgh is amazing. I do tours because I love this city, and I want you to love it too! Previous guests have said:

"Hetty's love and passion for her city was a highlight of the tour, you could see that her tours aren't 'just a job' but a genuine love of sharing her knowledge and passion with others."

"I highly recommend a private tour not only for the sheer pleasure of hearing Hetty talk about Edinburgh, but because it gave us a great sense of how to navigate the city for the next several days. Five stars!"
