Чем вы займетесь

This is the ideal tour for anyone who wants to learn more than just the basics about Edinburgh's historic Old Town. You'll meet us in the heart of Old Town and enjoy a 2 hour guided walk through the town centre. This tour will have a bit of everything - you'll learn about the lives of some of the Old Town's most famous and infamous residents, and some gruesome, interesting, and entertaining stories about what the city has seen over the centuries. Along the way, we'll point out some of our favourite spots to pop in for a "wee dram" or pint, so you'll know just where to go once the tour is over!

Most tours start after the crowds have died down so we have more space to explore Old Town. We limit the group size to 8 people, so it's still a personal experience and you'll be able to chat with your guide and ask questions. Our goal is for you to learn a bit about Edinburgh's history, and have a great time while doing it!
Other things to note
We'll do this tour rain or shine, so be sure to watch the weather and come prepared!

Где вы побываете

We will explore the heart of Old Town, full of quaint alleys, hidden streets, and a story around every corner. You'll learn about all the main sites on the Royal Mile, Greyfriars, and Grassmarket, but you'll also explore the hidden 'closes' of the Old Town (historic, narrow alleyways).

Gains was my tour guide and ended up as a solo tour due to January being a slower season. Gains was so knowledgeable about the history of Edinburgh all around. I was blown away by the information he told and stories along the way. He even recited parts of a poem from the worst poet known (a definite highlight and a good laugh). I would absolutely recommend doing this tour if you love the historical aspects of cities and structures. So much to learn!

Gains was such an excellent tour guide. Great story teller, very knowledgeable and had great recommendations what places to check out and where to grab food/drinks as he led us around Old Town Edinburg as he told us the history of the places and things we were passing by. It was an easy, enjoyable, fun walk with loads of history and a little bit of hunted stories, and where popular books like Frankenstein, and Harry Potter were inspired by anecdotes and places around Edinburg. We’ve been to Edinburg several time but this was the first time we did a tour and we highly recommended it.

An easy walking tour, but Gains shared great local anecdotes and local folklore that you can’t find elsewhere. Truly appreciated his dry, but cheeky humor and these stories to make it personalized.

Highly recommend this tour on your first day in Edinburgh to orient yourself to Old Town. Gains was engaging and entertaining as he shared the history of Edinburgh and some of its local historical characters. He clearly knows the history well but it is his ability to convey the knowledge with a thread of humor throughout that makes it a wonderful experience even on a grey, cold, damp weather day! Learned a lot - thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
