Trip Info

This is a public walking tour to give you a fun and informative introduction to the city.

We will cover parts of both Edinburgh’s Old Town (around the Royal Mile) and also the Georgian-era ‘New’ Town on a route which departs from the bottom of Granny’s Green Steps at the western end of the Grassmarket, in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle and finishes with panoramic views across the city from the top of Calton Hill.

The walking tour will cover roughly 2 miles of the city, with some moderate hills, beautiful cobbled streets, and steps. Led by a local guide, there is no better way to discover the culture and character of Edinburgh.

The Weekend Explorer Tour is a great way to begin your visit to Edinburgh, to set you up for a day exploring the city at your leisure!
