Private driving tour of Edinburgh with a local guide
Edinburgh is Scotland's stunning capital city. A UNESCO world heritage site with two distinct areas. The Old town, dominated by Edinburgh Castle and The New Town which was developed from the 18th century onwards. This is an in depth tour of the city in a state of the art Mercedes Vito Taxi. We will take in all of Edinburgh's iconic sites and attractions and can be done as either a full or half day tour with any specific interests or requirements you may have factored in.
As we travel through the city sit back, see the places and hear the stories of the characters and events that helped shape Edinburgh into the truly unique world class city she is today.
We will take in the historic old town and stunning Georgian new town along with all the major sites and landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle, St Giles Cathedral, Greyfriars Bobby, The Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Palace and Arthur's Seat as well as numerous lesser known places of interest the guide books miss out. Hear about the notorious Burke and Hare, Deacon Brodie, George Heriot, Elsie Inglis and Maggie Dickson along with the literary icons Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson and J K Rowling.
I will provide a full commentary as well as ensuring there will be lots of opportunities for photo stops along the way. Refreshment and comfort breaks will be made upon request.

David arrived promptly with an excellent tour of both the "Old Town" and "New Town" in Edinburgh. Only had time for a short half-day tour but well worth it since David really showed the top spots in town with suggestions for other sites if time allowed. High-light of tour is the Firth with the 3 Bridges! Breathtaking! Would recommend highly and hope to get back again for another tour!
