What you say

"This was an amazing trip. I liked that we had scheduled things to do and see so we hit the highlights of the city/surrounding area. Nev was supper approachable and genuinely cared that we all had a good time and were safe." - Morgan, USA (Nov 2018)

""Definitely worth it! Really helps you to discover all the important places without keeping preventing you from making own discoveries"" - Lena (Germany) December 2018

"I had a lot of fun on this trip. I thought Dave was very funny, nice and overall a great guy. The hostel was also great (I was in a 4pers bedroom w en suite bathroom, which made me even happier), good breakfast, great optional tours, and a fun group of people. And Edinburgh is absolutely gorgeous." - Robyn (Holland) March 2018

Old Town Walking Tour - FREE




Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but with some very dark secrets. As soon as we arrive our legendary local guide is going to show you the stunning sights - Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile, and men in kilts (!), and some of our not-so-well-known favourites - down the mysterious, winding backstreets of Edinburgh's Old Town.

Cost: only £5 FREE (included)
How to book: just show up on the day

Arthur's Seat Volcano Climb - FREE




Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano. Some say the name comes from the legendary Arthur of Camelot, others think it’s from the phrase "Archer's Seat" because the rock was probably a good place to defend the city from in the Middle Ages. Wherever the name’s from, the view of Edinburgh from the top is amazing, and we're walking up it! 

Cost: only £5 FREE (included)

It serves tasty Scottish dishes - Haggis, neeps and tatties, Scottish Beef stew, and other dishes (including vegetarian) - for a great night out with friends.
