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.

This tour is a “must do” while in London Marina was an outstanding tour guide. Clear communication, great choice of spots to highlight, very good tempo to tour (not too slow or too fast). Loads of great information. Shared just enough history to delight me without making my wife’s eyes glaze over. Tower would be my “must do” for a London visit. And, Marina’s tour was superb.

Fantastic! Marina was superb. I took this tour with my husband and three sons (20,18.17). Loved that we had a small group and could ask questions. Note this tours doesn't include skip the line tickets. We ended up seeing the crown jewels at the end of the day to avoid the ridiculously long line.

Best Tour of London Tower Denisa gave us an amazing tour of London Tower. She was knowledgeable and provided a wonderfully historical tour, holding the attention of a 14 and 15 year old. Denisa is top notch. Try and secure her when you book any tour! Loved hearing about the history of the ravens and, of course, the palace intrigue.

Great Tour! Sarah was amazing and gave us a great introduction to York! We only had a few days to spend there and this was a wonderful way to make a list of the places we wanted to visit. Highly recommend!

Wonderful Tour! Kids learned so much! I have never had a tour in a museum before, but wow. I will definitely do it again! Our guide explained the history and folklore behind the paintings. It was like a friend taking you to her favorite places. Our children age 9 and 11 were able to remember what paintings we saw and why they were important. 10/10 would definitely recommend!

LOVE Denisa! We had a group with 6 kids and she was absolutely incredible! Very informative and extremely engaging with the children! We did a trip to Paris with a “children specialist” tour and she was just as good if not better!! It felt like we were hanging out with a local friend from the first minute we met her. We recommend her highly and we hope to book again with her in the future!

Private walking tour of London and private tour of Tower of London Our family of four took two tours on two different days with Denisa. We took a walking tour of London as well as a tour of the Tower of London. We found her to be extremely friendly and knowledgeable. She had a wealth of information about everything that she showed us. She even knew smal details like the names of the ravens at the Tower! We would highly recommend any tour with Denisa!

Wonderful walk around... We had a great day with Denisa - we are a family with two relatively small children and we saw a lot of this wonderful city (Westminster, St. Pauls, Tower etc.). Everything was well prepared and with all this specific knowledge it is much easier to get around - very quick and to the point. Denisa knows a lot of the background and she made it very targeted to the kids. She gave us a few great tips on restaurants and other things to see by ourselves. Very recommendable !

Brilliant London Visit Living at the other end of the country we don't visit too often, or know London very well, but Denisa made lots of very useful and practical suggestions and made sure that we fitted in everything that we were looking for. Her knowledge of the City is excellent, whether it is of the tourist haunts, the historical areas or shopping and eating. She even helped direct us to a great area to stay when visiting the City, which was handy for everything we wanted to do. On top of all that the 2 hour tour we did with her showed us St Paul's and beyond, including the Tower, an area we hadn't really seen before. Lots of information and a good pace with a friendly and very flexible approach. We would not hesitate in recommending her for anyone else visiting London, whether they think they know where they would like to go, or have no idea and we will be booking Denisa again for future visits. First class.
