Enjoy a wonderful walk from Edinburgh Castle to Arthur's Seat with a local guide. During your walk, you will pass through the historic Old Town and many highlights of the city. The experience is 100% personalized to your interests and needs and a local host will be matched to you to help you see the city as you would with a knowledgeable friend.

After booking, a member of the local operator will contact your to ask about your wishes and interests. They will then put together a personalized itinerary just for you and your group.

Take a break in Dunbar's Close, a beautiful secret garden in 17th-century style, and pass through the Royal Mile famous for its traditional restaurants and authentic pubs.
