Discover Scotland’s beautiful capital city on this private tour of Edinburgh. Exploring the Old Town on foot, led by your local Blue Badge Guide, is the best way to soak up the local atmosphere.

Starting on top of the volcanic rock, we will embark on an Edinburgh Castle tour to learn all about the iconic landmark. Then, we will follow the ancient path of a glacier all the way to the bottom of the Royal Mile.

Your guide will lead you through the city’s narrow closes and beautiful buildings surrounding the Royal Mile, giving you the chance to discover the city’s history and its famous citizens along the way.

Our Edinburgh walking tour concludes with a view of both the Royal Palace of Holyrood and the modern Scottish Parliament, a fantastic introduction to the city of Edinburgh.

We also offer tours in other UK cities! Check out our London City Tour, our York Guided Tour or our Tour of Oxford for more info.

Highly recommend. Great for both adults and children Fantastic tour with Denisa. We had 3 adults and our 7 year old grandson, and she did a great job of engaging and educating all of us. She customized the tour for our interests/ages, and we visited the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast.We couldn't have been more happy with our experience

DO IT Wow wow wow. This was a great tour. Everything was perfect. I don't often take tours - usually want to explore on my own. This was a short trip and we wanted to pack as much in as possible so we decided to book a tour. I've now become a fan of tours. Marina waited for us at the meeting point ahead of schedule. She was pleasant and extremely knowledgeable, even in answering our questions that were not directly related to the tour. She was prepared and kept us all engaged - adults and teens. It was clear she was prepared to engage any age. I was worried that I'd feel "trapped" in a long tour but it was the exact opposite - the day went by so easily and comfortably and I can't believe how much we saw and learned. I could not recommend the tour any more strongly.

Terrific Tower of London tour My family loved this private tour! We learned so much from our guide and loved being her sole focus. My girls could ask lots of questions and feel comfortable doing so!

Best Way to Tour the Tower Where to begin? These ladies run a top-notch operation. Their service levels are unparalled. Their knowledge base is incredible, which is only matched by their excellent communication before the tour, and follow up after with little tidbits of information. Book with them, and you will not be disappointed.

Amazing tour for families! An excellent tour! We brought our family of six (4 teen kids) and learned so much! Denisa was so knowledgeable and made it very interesting for kids and adults. So much exciting history packed in these walls! Bring good walking shoes and a water.

You need a professional blue badge guide like Galina! Galina was our tour guide and extremely knowledgeable! This was a deep dive into history and you need a professional to help simplify what your looking at. There's so much history in London that I never thought I'd ever be educated on. I'm happy we got Galina and my wife and I can't thank her enough for such a great experience.
