If you do one tour in Edinburgh, this is my favorite. Not for the faint of heart!
Really interesting underground tour in the Old Town delving into Edinburgh's past, book tickets online in advance.
It's an underground street/close situated on the bustling Royal Mile. As the Royal Mile Grew, the small streets and close were built upon until the whole area was sealed shut from the residents of Edinburgh!
Below the City Chambers discover a warren of streets frozen in time. Discover authentic truths about Edinburgh's dark past, and find out what it was really like for the people who lived, worked, and died on the Close.

“Only 20 mins walk from my flat takes you to Holyrood park and the starting point for an ascent of Edinburgh's mini mountain. You will need shoes/boots with a decent grip as its quite steep and can be slippery but its well worth it - the 360degree views are fantastic!”

“Scotland’s premier museum of natural and anthropological history is an eye-catching mix of old and new: the main hall, a grand, airy space ringed by balconies across three storeys, dates from 1866, while the more modern sandstone section was opened in 1998. Its contents, too, are wide-ranging: from dinosaur skeletons, Egyptian sarcophagi and Tibetan prayer wheels in the old galleries to artefacts of Scottish history in the new wing”
