2-hour Edinburgh Highlights Private Tour

This 2-hour private tour is the perfect introduction to Edinburgh and a great way to orientate yourself in the city. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see sights such as the Royal Mile, Mercat Cross, Greyfriars Kirkyard and more.

Discover Scotland’s capital, in the company of a local expert guide

Historical heavyweight Edinburgh has seen it all. Over the years, the quaint capital has played host to the heroes and villains of Scottish folklore; from William Wallace and his band of kilted rebels, to the body-snatchers Burke and Hare. We’ll take you through the spate of witch burnings that took place in the city between the 15th and 18th centuries, and explore the heartwarming true story of Greyfriars’ Bobby - Scotland’s favourite folktale.

Often lauded to be the U.K's most picturesque city, this 2-hour private tour will trace a path through the stunning Royal Mile, before passing Edinburgh Castle, Mercat Cross and George Heriot’s School (rumoured to be the inspiration for J.K. Rowling’s Hogwarts).
