Know More about this tour

At 9am, meet your local historian guide in the center of the city. Together with your small group (maximum six people), get ready to discover the Royal Mile and historic center of Edinburgh as you trace the development of the famous Old Town to the modern day on this 3-hour walking tour.

Starting on the famed Royal Mile, explore the delightful wynds (narrow lanes), closes (alleys), and streets veering off from the busy street. Hear tales of royals, espionage, and intrigue with plenty of time to ask your guide further questions. Contemplate both the beautiful 17th-century mansions and traces of the slums that became the catalyst for construction of Edinburghs New Town. Follow your guide past the Canongate Kirk, the Canongate Tolbooth, a remaining section of the Flodden Wall; the house of the noted Scottish reformer John Knox, and finally the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official Scottish residence of the Queen.

Bid farewell by the former city wall three hours later, and walk away better acquainted with the Old Town and with a clear understanding of the importance of the citys development to Scotlands history.
