Join a knowledgeable and experienced local guide for this fun and informative introduction to Edinburgh's contrasting Old and New Town areas. From the narrow lanes of the medieval Old Town to the wide terraces of the Georgian-era New Town, each group is limited to just a handful of people to find out what gives Edinburgh its unique character, along with stories of the people who have lived (and died) here.

From kilts and kings to glaciers and volcanoes, join an experienced and knowledgeable local tour guide for this exploration of the contrasting sides to Edinburgh's city centre. No gimmicks, no ghosts, no Harry Potter, just fact-based stories from 900 years of Edinburgh's history to give you the perfect introduction to Scotland's capital city!

Highlights include the bustling Grassmarket area, the Royal Mile, St Giles' Cathedral and old Parliament Square, the buildings of the Old Town 'closes' and 'wynds', Princes Street Gardens, Princes Street and the Scott Monument, the National Galleries of Scotland, and unbeatable views of Edinburgh castle.
