About the Tour

Thanks to the geology of the terrain, Edinburgh has become one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

We will know the history of this medieval city, with more than 3000 years, from the first tribes that populated it, the Picts, to the men in skirts. We will talk about its most important buildings, such as the Cathedral of San Giles, or the City Chambers. We will walk through its most emblematic streets, such as the Royal Mile , Chambers Street or Victoria Street , the street that inspired the writer of the Harry Potter novels to create Diagon Alley.

We will also visit the sculpture of the puppy Bobby , which is next to the Greyfriars cemetery, where many mysteries and legends are hidden, and some paranormal activity. Part of the Harry Potter book was written in Edinburgh and its writer, JK Rowling, used the inspiration graveyard, join us to discover where he wrote and what he used for inspiration.

Sin duda el mejor Free tour que he hecho hasta la fecha. Recomendable al 100%. La ciudad nos encantó pero es que el guía no pudo ser mejor. Carlos no sólo se conoce cada rincón e historieta de Edimburgo sino que, además, te hace sentir en familia :) Volveremos!
