You will be driven around Edinburgh in a traditional London taxi that can seat up to a maximum of four people. This eight and a half hour tour will include all of the most popular and main tourist attractions. We will take in The Scottish Parliament, The Palace of Holyrood House, St Giles Cathedral, The Royal Mile and of course Edinburgh Castle! And drive around Arthur Seat and the Crags for some of the most breathtaking views the city has to offer. I will give you a commentary on all of the places we are visiting and answer any queries or questions.

We will then stop for lunch in one of the oldest pubs in Scotland.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had one day in port and wanted to make the most of it. We contacted Kevin ahead of time to do some customizing and he really came through for us. He dropped us at Edinburgh Castle before the crowds and tours arrived. We were able to see the Castle in relative quiet. We asked for some Outlander sites and he was so knowledgable and showed us three close locations. His stories and knowledge kept us engaged for a full 8 hours.
