Summary of The Day: This tour is the perfect introduction to Scotland's capital. The first secret you'll learn? That you can skip the line at Edinburgh Castle!
Discover an Edinburgh beyond the reach of tour buses and books. Your expert guide will take you to the places where history was made: the wynds, closes, courtyards and homes of Edinburgh's Old Town. You'll be hanging on your guide's every word, as the true stories of our capital's past unfold.
The characters? Think Mary Queen of Scots, David Hume, Adam Smith and Robert Burns. But you'll go far beyond the well-known facts and faces, uncovering another side of our city, and Scotland's past. From crime and culture to politics and everyday events, all Edinburgh life is here, expertly told by your guide.
The castle dominates Scotland's capital city from its great rock. Battles and sieges were fought over it, royalty lived and died within its walls, and countless generations have been inspired by it.
Visit the Castle with your guide, and you'll walk straight over the drawbridge, straight past the ticket line, for a guided tour of the interior. The full tour, including Edinburgh Castle, takes 2 hours and 15 minutes.
