…and discover hidden gems to explore during your trip.
Hosting two UNESCO world heritage sights and more listed buildings than anywhere else in the world, Edinburgh is a city rich in culture and history. With so much to do, it can be difficult to know where to start. But not to worry – John is here to help. A well-reviewed local guide with a deep love of his city, John will take you on a whistle stop tour of Edinburgh’s best sites and attractions and introduce you to some of his favourite spots.
Starting at Edinburgh Castle, John will lead you down the Royal Mile and through Edinburgh’s Old Town towards the Scottish Parliament building and Holyrood Park. You will walk the same streets as activists, poets, criminals, and royalty, and learn about the events which have shaped the city. Then, as you briefly escape the bustle of Edinburgh’s city centre, breathe in the crisp air of Holyrood Park and discover how Edinburgh began.
During the tour, John will be giving plenty of local recommendations, from activities and little-known haunts to restaurants and pubs. He loves sharing his local knowledge, so feel free to ask him lots of questions!
