This walking tour is designed to give you a broad understanding of Edinburgh, it's history and culture.  The tour runs for around two hours taking in many of the sites of the Old Town which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We strive to be informative yet entertaining on this tour, delivering an overview of Edinburgh with the passion it deserves.
What to Expect
The walking tour will take you up and down the network of cobbled streets and back allies that make up the historic heart of the Old Town of Edinburgh.  The tour runs for around two hours and you can expect to see sights such as St Giles Cathedral, the Mercat Cross, Greyfriars Kirk and graveyard, the George Heriot School and Edinburgh Castle (from the outside).  Every guide who works with us is strongly encouraged to develop their own tour route to help ensure that they are passionate about the stories and history that they deliver on their tour.  We believe this tour will give you a good understanding of Edinburgh and is a great basis for the other tours that we offer.
