Enjoy a history walking tour discovering the best of Edinburgh
In this 6 hour private tour together we will enjoy a wonderful day discovering all the highlights of the New and the Old Town, which make Edinburgh a UNESCO World Heritage site. We will start with the New Town, its regal streets, elegant buildings and squares. Then, we will go down to Princes Street Gardens were a lake used to be and climb one of the most breathtaking hills of the city.

We will end the tour in front of the magnificent Edinburgh Castle.
