This Private Tour is a great way to get an overview of the city's history and things to do/places to eat.

We walk through the medieval Old Town, giving you a great overview of Edinburgh's most famous landmarks, but also the city's most intriguing hidden streets and alleyways. You will soon know more about Edinburgh than its average resident.

This tour is great for all kinds of group sizes and ages. If you have any specific interests, such as Harry Potter, History or Outlander, let us know and we'll happily tailor the tour to you!

Your guide for this tour will most likely be Gains; our experienced head walking tour guide who holds a PhD in Scottish history. We don't think you'll find anyone that knows so much about Edinburgh's past, and he tells it all in a really fun and interesting way!

Local Eyes Tours

See Scotland with Local Eyes! All our tours are led by local guides who live in (or are from) the places we visit on tour, so if you're looking for an authentic experience of Scotland, you're in the right place! Local Eyes was started in 2013 by Chris Walker because he wanted to share his hometown with the world. Now, in 2018, we are a small group of excellent guides who all want to show you where we come from, and why we love Scotland. We offer a range of tours in and around Edinburgh and the Highlands. All our tours are private and we aim to customise them to best suit your needs.

Opening times

Our office is open for enquiries from 9am - 5pm Monday through Friday. Our tours run every day of the week and every month of the year!
