Enjoy a half day walking tour of Edinburgh Castle and Old Town. Edinburgh Old town has a rich and sometimes dark history. Let us guide you through the narrow closes and streets to reach the mighty Edinburgh Castle. This tour is a great introduction to the city.
We will walk through the narrow alleyways of the Old Town called closes and learn the meaning of Auld Reekie. We will explore the important sights that have made the town what it is today. This will include the Tron Kirk, Mercat Cross, Heart of Midlothian and St Giles area.
Then we go to Greyfriars Kirkyard which was home to Edinburgh's hero dog, Bobby. The Graveyard is also haunted and has connections with Harry Potter.
We finally reach the impregnable Edinburgh Castle for a personal guided tour. Standing on top of an extinct volcano it offers great views of the city and surroundings. See the Scottish Crown Jewels, Great Hall and Edinburgh's oldest building; St Margaret's Chapel.
