Your experience


  • Take a fun tour of Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile in a small group and see history come alive
  • Enjoy priority entry at Edinburgh Castle - no queues for you, just stories about Scotland's exciting past
  • Learn more about the famous inhabitants of the Scottish capital - past and present - from kings and writers to philosophers and everyday people


The taste of haggis, the sound of bagpipes and a looming castle on a hill - Scotland's capital has it all! Explore Edinburgh's secrets on a guided tour of its historic streets, then pass the queues to Edinburgh Castle for an overview of its people - past and present.

Away from the coaches and guides, your experienced guide will take you on a history lesson in Edinburgh through wynds, castles and courtyards.

Hear true stories about crime, culture, politics and everyday life in the city. Find out how people like Mary Queen of Scots, David Hume, Adam Smith and Robert Burns have shaped Edinburgh's culture, politics and more, and then walk straight into Edinburgh Castle.

Find out who died here, who fought for what, which sieges were successful and which were not.

There's plenty to soak up - but you can wash it down later with some Scottish whisky!
