Qué vas a hacer

This is the ideal tour for anyone who wants to learn more than just the basics about Edinburgh's historic Old Town. You'll meet us in the heart of Old Town and enjoy a 2 hour guided walk through the town centre. This tour will have a bit of everything - you'll learn about the lives of some of the Old Town's most famous and infamous residents, and some gruesome, interesting, and entertaining stories about what the city has seen over the centuries. Along the way, we'll point out some of our favourite spots to pop in for a "wee dram" or pint, so you'll know just where to go once the tour is over!

Most tours start after the crowds have died down so we have more space to explore Old Town. We limit the group size to 8 people, so it's still a personal experience and you'll be able to chat with your guide and ask questions. Our goal is for you to learn a bit about Edinburgh's history, and have a great time while doing it!
Other things to note
We'll do this tour rain or shine, so be sure to watch the weather and come prepared!

Dónde vas a estar

We will explore the heart of Old Town, full of quaint alleys, hidden streets, and a story around every corner. You'll learn about all the main sites on the Royal Mile, Greyfriars, and Grassmarket, but you'll also explore the hidden 'closes' of the Old Town (historic, narrow alleyways).

Gains is incredibly knowledgeable and engaging and wears his expertise lightly. Each location on the tour was carefully chosen and interestingly woven into a fascinating narrative. A great start to our staycation in Edinburgh.

My parents and my children went on a private tour of Old Town with Gains. Gains is extremely knowledgeable historian and a very engaging guide. He managed to keep the interest of an audience whose age ranged from 11 to 74, which is a very tall order. Gains structured the tour as to take into account the interests and physical limitations of our party. I highly recommend him!

Fantastic ~ the highlight of our trip to Edinburgh! Gains was incredibly knowledgeable but also made the entire tour interesting and engaging the entire time. We came away feeling like we had all of the ‘insider knowledge’ including knowing about the local characters, the hidden gems and exploring the back streets. We were blown away with Gains’ knowledge, and it was clear he was passionate about Scottish history. We will be back to Edinburgh and will book onto your other tours, and recommend to all our friends! Thankyou so much.

Our tour guide was Gains, and he was knowledgeable and approachable. He created a safe fun environment for us to question his knowledge about the History of Scotland, and the guy knows his stuff, that because he has. PHD in Scottish History! Well recommend.

Our tour with Gains was one of the best things we did on our trip. We learnt so much but it was all done in a really interesting and entertaining way- the time went really quickly! A great way to spend a few hours, see some beautiful sights and learn something new.
