“The experience was amazing. We could cover most of the places in the itinerary. The tour guide Neil is funny, knowledgeable and an absolute entertainer. I am definitely recommending these guys to anyone who wants to visit Isle of Skye. My smile in the pictures will tell you how happy I was all the while :)

Edinburgh - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

An ancient city dating back millenia, Edinburgh is a mass of captivating layers that demand to be explored. From the majestic Edinburgh castle that looks down over the city to The Shore in Leith, a trip to Edinburgh is a magic mix of old and new that offers unrivalled Scottish nightlife, cuisine, and festivals that are as traditionally and culturally significant as they are fun. Get lost amongst the cobbled side-streets, revel in the reputable Scottish hospitality and gulp down some fresh air in the great outdoors.

Tour Highlights

  • A half-day tour to Edinburgh Castle is worth the entrance fee. See the crown jewels, get a glorious view of Edinburgh from up on the hill and learn about the historical tapestry of Edinburgh.
  • Be a tourist and walk the Royal Mile from the royal castle to the royal palace.
  • Edinburgh is home to many historical ghosts. Take a ghost tour and learn a thing or two about Edinburgh’s history while giving yourself a spook.
  • If you are in Edinburgh for New Year’s, it’s essential to celebrate the Scottish way with Hogmanay. Thousands tour to Edinburgh every New Years for the legendary festivities.
  • Hike up to Arthur’s Seat at magic hour for a breathtaking view of the city and a breath of fresh air.
  • During a summer, there are countless festivals to get involved with the comedic Fringe festival being the most famous.
  • The National Gallery is free and has some great work by Monet, Rembrandt and more.
  • Edinburgh Zoo is big on conservation and has helped save multiple endangered species.

Travel Tips

  • The best way to save money on transport and admire the beauty of Edinburgh is to walk!
  • Food and drink prices on the Royal Mile are higher than elsewhere in the city.
  • Parks, gardens, museums and galleries are mostly free in Edinburgh.
  • Edinburgh stays fairly cool year-round. You can always expect some wind and rain in Scotland but the winters are freezing. Pack lots of layers.
  • Many of Edinburgh’s restaurants offer set menus and drinks for as little as £20 per person.
  • Hotels away from the city center are much more cost-friendly than those on the Royal Mile, for example.
