In the narrow streets of Edinburgh you were as likely to meet a murderer as a man of genius. Body-snatchers, witch hunters, firebrand priests and philosophers all living on the side of a dead volcano. Guides will take you down narrow alleyways, tell you the stories behind the history, and show you views which will define your trip to Scotland’s capital! 

This 2.5-hour walking tour covers all the main sights of the Old Town. The guides we work with have a unique style of combining history with pure showmanship and this has made us one of the most popular walking tour companies in all of Europe.

 

*Average tour length. The independent guides with whom we work have your best interests in mind; while the tour usually includes the sites and stories above and lasts this long, your tour may vary depending on what your guide thinks is best for your group!
