A fun and knowledgeable guide, I am keen on history and know Edinburgh's story quite well. Having lived in the lovey Scottish capital for a long time now, I have had the amazing opportunity to experience its unique culture and people. I also used to be a volunteer at the St. Giles Cathedral where my interest in history was ignited. I believe that history should be presented in a unbiased, capturing and passionate way. The tour is free which means you are free to choose how much to tip the guide at the end of the tour. So if you want to go on an amazing adventure and get to know the Old Town of Edinburgh as best as possible, just book a tour and leave the rest in my hands.

About the Tour

Having been a cultural, historical, scientific and political centre of Scotland for centuries, the truly fascinating city of Edinburgh is by far one of the most unique cities in the world. ​ For such a small country, Scotland and also Edinburgh sure gave much to the world.

The city has seen countless battles throughout the ages. Mighty kings and queens have resided here, wars have been declared, impressive monuments built, stunning inventions created and religious revolutions carried out. ​ 

With its amazing architecture and romantic scenery, the Scottish capital can offer you an amazing adventure, one which will leave lasting memories long after your visit here. ​ With a fun personna such as myself, you will be taken on a great, amazing tour around the Old Town of Edinburgh, which is the heart and foundation of the city. ​ You will get to see museums, remarkable sites, such as the impressive St. Giles Cathedral and the Castle of Edinburgh, one of the most besieged and attacked places in the world - and much more. At the same time, you will learn so much as history will be presented to you in the best possible way.

The tour is free which means you have the freedom to evaluate it by tipping the tour guide at the end. 

 So, just book a tour and let the adventure start!

Adrian was a lovely and very friendly tour guide. We had a private tour as we were the only ones attending the walk and it was really fun. We learned a lot about Edinburgh and we highly recommend the tour with Adrian. A real pleasure. -Kenza & Oriana

A great introductory tour of Edinburgh. Adrian is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. June 2021 is a good time to do it tourism is slow and numbers will be small - we had the tour to ourselves.

Martin Plocek 05/11/2021

We have taken many free tours in the pask few years and I must say this was definitelly one of the best. The tour was not only informative, but also fun and packed with quirky facts about places i Edinburgh we would never found on our own. Our guide was a professional that knew answer to everything we asked. He also adjusted the tour to our needs (content-wise and also made a bit shorter). Highly recommended!

Response from Alfamega Tours
Dear Martin, Thank you so much for your review! I appreciate every word and it motivates me to always try and provide the best service. Take care and stay safe. Regards, Adrian Alfamega Tours
