Overview
Say goodbye to public transport and hello to the classic Mini Cooper on this speedy private Edinburgh tour for no more than three people. Let your guide take to the wheel and navigate as you zoom around some of the city’s best-known areas—Calton Hill, Dean Village, Grassmarket, and Arthur’s Seat—plus a few lesser-known spots. Your guide shares historical facts and insight along the way.
Highlights
  • Discover Edinburgh in just a few hours with the help of a private guide
  • Zip around the city in style in a contemporary Mini Cooper
  • See Grassmarket, Arthur’s Seat, Dean Village, and Calton Hill
  • Enjoy door-to-door transport in a quintessentially British vehicle
What to Expect
Your driver/guide collects you from your city center hotel and chauffeurs you on a whirlwind tour of Edinburgh that goes beyond the Royal Mile. Following a route that’s tailored to your hotel location, discover one of Scotland’s oldest pubs, Edinburgh’s secret garden, and the towering hill known as Arthur’s Seat (not visited on Sunday as it’s closed to car traffic). See Grassmarket, where executions were held in the 18th century, visit Victorian Dean Village, and learn about Calton Hill. As you travel through Edinburgh, your guide explains the city and its history, delivering insider insights from a local’s perspective. The tour ends with drop-off at your central Edinburgh hotel.

We just came back from an amazing morning with Andy seeing and hearing about all the beautiful sights in Edinburgh. Being in the mini was a lot of fun and enabled us to get to areas we wouldn’t have been able to see otherwise. Andy is extremely knowledgeable, being born and

We spent the last day of 2019 with the lads (brothers Andy & Rowan) of Mini Mack Tours beep beep beeping around Edinburgh. It was a brilliant day and exceptional way to see the sights, with local knowledge and far from feeling touristy. Thanks boys!
