An all day tour of the highlights of the city, with transportation from the shore


Enjoy a wonderful day discovering all the highlights that make Edinburgh a UNESCO World Heritage site. After having reached the top of the Royal Mile via transportation, we will visit the fascinating Edinburgh Castle which has a vital place in the history of Scotland with tales of royals, sieges and murders. We will travel down hill into the heart of the Old Town, visiting the highlights as well as discovering the off the beaten path secrets of the Lawnmarket and the High Street. We will see Edinburgh New Town from one of the high vantage points. Finally we will end the tour in front of the magnificent Holyrood Palace, place for many dramatic episodes in the short reign of Mary, Queen of Scots. We will return via private vehicle with a driver to the shore where your ship is docked. All my tours can be customised to meet your needs and interests, so feel free to contact me at any time.
