Where scenic views meet dark history

Built on the side of a distinct volcano, Edinburgh is a city of scenic views, but also dark history. While it may be the home of some of history's greatest minds, these men of genius shared the city with body-snatchers, witch-hunters and murderers.  
 
Our famous FREE Tour gives you a 2.5 hour overview of Edinburgh and will help you to plan what to do with your time here. If you want to delve deeper into some of the more specific aspects of the city, you can also join us to visit the Edinburgh Castle with our Castle Tour, to discover Edinburgh's murderers and monsters with the Dark Side Tour, to experience the Scottish enlightenment with the New Town Tour, or to take in Edinburgh's legendary nightlife with the Pub Crawl.  Our tours run year-round on all major holidays.
