Private driving tour with 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 with any specific interests or requirements you may have factored in. This full day version of the tour gives us the chance to explore some of the sites on the outskirts of the city such as Rosslyn Chapel and the Forth Bridges. Lunch in a traditional Scottish pub.
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. A stop for lunch in a traditional Scottish pub. Refreshment and comfort breaks will be made upon request. Return to pick up point after conclusion of tour.

David did an outstanding job. We had been touring in Scotland for 10 days and David showed us great places we would have never seen without him. Who would have thought there would be more !
