Itinerary

Edinburgh

Hop aboard our Edinburgh bus tour at Waterloo Place in central Edinburgh. From here, we
travel along Princes Street, past Scott's Monument, dedicated to the famous poet and writer Sir Walter Scott.

Continuing along Princes Street under the impressive Edinburgh Castle, you'll hear about the famous building itself and the gorgeous gardens that sit below it.

We then head to the Grassmarket, with its array of small boutique shops, traditional Scottish pubs, and restaurants. It functioned both as a lively market place and a notorious place of execution. Back in the day, Edinburgh's criminals were granted one last whisky in the Last Drop pub before being strung up near-by.

You will learn about Edinburgh's most famous dog, Greyfriars Bobby, and travel around the central university area. The buildings here are stunning, and there's the chance to spot some of the magical places that inspired the Harry Potter books. We'll point out the birthplace of the Harry Potter franchise: The Elephant House Café on George IV Bridge, where JK Rowling is said to have written some of the books.

We then work our way up to Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile with a short introduction to Old Town.

Meandering back down towards the New Town, we venture past the Bank of Scotland headquarters and the National Gallery of Scotland. Here you’ll learn about the Scottish pioneers, poets, and writers who once lived in these beautiful Georgian buildings.

Next, we head off the beaten track across the Dean Bridge and into Edinburgh’s quaint Dean Village. This residential zone was once a separate village and is packed full of charming cobbled lanes. We continue exploring the area, where you'll get a view of Stewart's Melville College and the Galleries of Modern Art. It's here we hear more about Edinburgh as a backdrop for various films and television productions, including Trainspotting, Sunshine on Leith, and Inspector Rebus.

Back towards the city center, we pass the impressive St Mary's Cathedral, one of three cathedrals in Edinburgh. Passing through Edinburgh's prominent business district, Melville Street, we then travel along George Street and Queen Street before taking you up past Calton Hill. With its classically influenced architecture, it offers one of the best views of the city.

From here, we head down towards the foot of Arthur's Seat, past the Burns monument to Holyrood Park where the regal Holyrood Palace is located. Our last leg of the journey takes us up through the Canongate, past the John Knox House and Scottish Storytelling Center before heading back to Waterloo Place for the end of the tour.
