Each of the passionate guides bring their own unique style and interests to their tours. They will bring you their story of Edinburgh, the place they call home. This means each tour will cover slightly different topics. The tour will include places locals love and well-known sights such as the St. Giles Cathedral, the Mercat Cross, Greyfriars Bobby, the Grassmarket, Harry Potter’s inspiration, Edinburgh Castle (from the outside) and much more.
