4-hour panoramic tour of the City of Edinburgh
Explore Edinburgh, which has been the capital of Scotland since the 15th Century and stands proudly on seven hills, from the comfort of your own private minibus. Compare Edinburgh's medieval Old Town, where people lived in cramped conditions, to the elegant Georgian New Town. Enjoy undivided attention and learn all about this fascinating city on this 4-hour panoramic tour.
See the Castle, dating back to the Iron Age, home of several Monarchs and to the Scottish Crown Jewels & Stone of Destiny.
Drive down the Royal Mile (with stops along the way for photographs, exploring, a little retail therapy if time permits & coffee!!), and experience ancient Edinburgh. At the bottom of The Royal Mile sits The Palace of Holyroodhouse, the official Scottish residence of the Monarch which was built in the 16th Century. Your tour will take you past the Scottish Parliament and round Edinburgh's extinct volcano, "Arthur's Seat" and then into the "New Town" to see the difference between the old medieval and "New" Georgian cities

Our guide, Alan, was a charming host and expert guide. He adapted the itinerary reflect our interests and was extremely knowledgeable of the history and culture of the city of Edinburgh (as well as just about any subject that arose in our conversation). We had a grand time and highly recommend Alan to those who appreciate a personalized tour.
