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 - not to mention its atmospheric Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town! Or, why not be brave, and explore beyond the town centre with a walk to one of the city's historic and picturesque suburbs.

Each tour is unique and personally guided by me. Depending on what you've requested you'll see a mix of Edinburgh's iconic highlights along with some hidden corners and less well-known spots. Offering flexible packages at competitive prices you can create a tour that suits you!

"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!"

I love this city, I want you to love it too!
