Know More about this tour

In the morning or afternoon get picked up by your driver-guide at your central Edinburgh accommodation. Get ready for a 4-hour tour of Edinburgh's sights and jump aboard your private transport for the day: a classic Mini Cooper.

Zip through the winding streets of Edinburgh's medieval Old Town and to the elegant Georgian New Town, which together form a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Head up to the rocky peak of Arthur's Seat, one of the highest points in the city, for sweeping views of the entire city and across the River Forth. Returning back down to street level, admire the distinctive figure of Edinburgh Castle, perched atop an extinct volcano, and listen as your guide provides insight into the history of the Grassmarket, a former execution site. Take a moment to stroll around the Grassmarket, which is now filled with lively bars and restaurants.

Get a peek at Scotland's oldest pub and then head north toward the charming Dean Village, set on the Water of Leith river. Head toward the port of Leith, which was merged with the city of Edinburgh, against residents' wishes, less than a century ago. Follow your guide and uncover stories of this vibrant neighborhood, home to many artists, as you stroll along the waterfront, taking in a side to the city not many tourists see.

Finish up your morning or afternoon tour with a classic Scottish lunch or dinner at a local restaurant. Say goodbye to your guide and choose anywhere in the city center to be dropped off so that you can continue exploring Edinburgh further.

Note: Arthur's Seat is closed to cars on Sundays so will be not be visited.

  • Top tier excursion. These two brothers Rowan and Andy operate Mini Mack w/their Mini's. Absolutely most enjoyable excursion we took while on our British Isles cruise. Andy was like our being with a family member. Great educational commentary on Edinburgh as we drove/stopped. Took us places obviously that a bus certainly would never go! Quaint, out of the way places and surely quicker...and FUN! Flexible/asked if we had any definitive want-to-see stops and topped off by a lunch at a local Pub which was soooo good/great experience. We're not tiny people but the tiny car was terrific! Must do when in Edinburgh!

  • Our driver Rowan was GREAT! Full of interesting information and history, he is funny, polite, able to adapt to what ever you are interested in seeing. Got a great feel for the city, and lunch at the end in a cool local pub was great. I would absolutely recommend him and this tour to anyone! His car Red Rocket is the cutest mini ever and very comfortable to ride in, even for me in the back seat. Great for driving around the streets of Edinburgh.

  • The Mini Mack tour is the very best way to acclimate and acquaint yourself with Edinburgh, especially if you have a limited time in the city. This tour was superb.

    Our local and knowledgable guide, Andy picked us at our hotel and then zipped us around to some major attractions that are a must see, he also introduced us to a hidden jewel of an herbal garden in a lovely park just steps from an old 14th century pub, the Sheep Heid Inn, where the Queen had popped into on a recent trip.

    If we were on foot for the day we would never have been able to access as many wonderful sights or know the local lore. Andy was very affable and easily answered our questions and was open to our interests.

    We finished our tour with lovely a bite to eat in a local pub with a varied menu.

    We would highly recommend this tour, owned and operated by locals, conveying anicdotes only a local can convey, whilst tooling around in a peppy Mini Cooper! Thank you Andy!

  • Excellent tour! Andy and Rowen were great and we had a very unique experience in Edinburgh. It is the best way to be introduced to the city and also to experience some non-tourist sites and gardens. The place where they took us for lunch was also very good.

  • This was a wonderful way to start our trip. We had a great overview of the city and our driver, Roen was so much fun and well informed.

  • If I could give this tour six stars, I would! Andy was our tour guide. He's lived in Edinburgh all his life and knows the history and the sites inside out. Apparently Andy and his brother run this company, each having a mini Cooper to give their private tours. He showed every attention to detail, including having umbrellas in case we needed them.
    It was a half-day morning tour but actually went until about 2 PM. He was waiting for us 10 minutes before the scheduled start time, adding a little polishing touches to his car. The mini Cooper although compact had great visibility for my wife and me. The vehicle was spotless, inside and out.
    His knowledge of the city and its history was evident throughout the tour. He took us to areas that we would not have gone on foot, like high up on hills which gave 360 views of Edinburgh.
    He also brought us to a couple of small towns which had some fascinating history. My wife told him that she was a gardener and so he took us to this pretty much unknown secret garden , just outside the city. It was spectacular and something that you would never ever see on an organized tour. We felt like the tour was customized just for us.
    We finished the tour with a complementary lunch, at the Roseleaf Pub in Leith, which was excellent,
    The next time we go to Edinburgh, we will be sure to take one or two additional tours with Andy.

  • The trip was all the tour guide in the mini !!!!! This trip was so much more then what we expected, to see so much of Edinburgh in just half a day with such heart felt information from our guide. Even took in some of the country side and water influence of the area topped of with a wonderful dinner before touring Edinburgh Castle to end our one dy trip to Scotland.The mini tour was magnificent experience!!!!!!!

  • Best part of our short time in Edinburgh - Roan was a great guide - very personable - took us to off the beat places - stopped to see incredible views and filled us in on the history around us - highly recommended!! Six stars!

  • My sister and I were highly pleased with this private tour given by Andy. He was very accommodating to my sister and me. We were interested in the history of the area and seeing the highlights of Edinburgh without having to get in and out of his car. He was very knowledgeable and very easy to listen and talk to. He even took lovely pictures for us. The dinner provided was also excellent. We would highly recommend him to others.

  • We loved our tour with Rowan Mackie! He was extremely knowledgeable about the city and surrounding areas, as well as warm and personable with an adventurous spirit. We were only in Edinburgh for one full rainy day and so glad that we had booked this personal tour. It was such a treat on a dreary day! My husband, Marc, and I have already recommended Mini-Mack tours to several friends. We will definitely do another tour with them when we return to Edinburgh!
