Full description
Meet your guide in central Edinburgh by the City Chambers, then set off on foot to explore Edinburgh Old Town. Walking is one of the best ways to experience the area because of its compact size and narrow passageways, which are known locally as ‘closes.’ Follow your expert guide around Edinburgh’s most iconic landmarks. As you stroll, listen to your knowledgeable guide recount the history of the city. Learn about the rise of Presbyterianism in Scotland and hear stories relating to St Giles’ Cathedral, whose gray medieval spire towers over the Royal Mile, a famous road at the heart of the city that’s lined with stately buildings. Imagine the Edinburgh of old as you hear stories about the controversial 15th century monarch, Mary Queen of Scots, and about key figures from the Scottish Enlightenment. View the imposing Edinburgh Castle and be intrigued by tales about its rise and fall, and about the fabled Stone of Destiny that’s held inside. Part of the Scottish crown jewels, this ancient gem was captured and held by the English for over 700 years before being returned to the Scots in 1996. Next, make your way to the Mound, an artificial hill that connects Edinburgh Old Town with the New Town. Pause for a snack (own expense) at the Grassmarket Square, then delve into the city’s dark side at the graveyard of Greyfriars Kirkyard. Soak up the eerie atmosphere as you listen to stories about executions and hauntings that are associated with the site. Find out how the graveyard is connected to the famous Harry Potter novel series. Your tour will then conclude at the beginning of the Royal Mile.

La experiencia de este tour fue genial. Para empezar, lo hice enmedio de la pandemia, así que éramos muy pocas personas en el tour. La compañía hizo todo lo posible para no cancelarlo (y funcionó). Marta, nuestra guía, fue un amor: muy amigable, paciente y podías preguntarle lo que quisieras. El tour era de 3 horas y aún así lo explicó todo con tanta gracia que se me pasó el tiempo volando. Además, todas las recomendaciones que nos dio respecto restaurantes y atracciones locales y souvenirs fueron buenas. Lo volvería a hacer sin dudarlo.
