Edinburgh Free Tour

We'll meet on the High Street (Royal Mile) and, with the help of a guide specialised in the history of Edinburgh, bring to life a magical city rooted in literature and culture, with contrasts in each of its streets.

We will discover the old town passing through its best-known streets, such as the Royal Mile, or Grassmarket, direct witnesses to the events which have made Edinburgh one of the most important cities in the United Kingdom.

What's more, we will visit the Edinburgh castle, the site of the Wars of Scottish Independence and the Jacobite Rising, and if you time it right, you can even see the firing of the "One O'Clock Gun" - the means by which the people of Edinburgh have set their clocks since 1861.
