The “Old” Edinburgh (Essential)
"Take me home, take me to Scotland" Scotland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world full of castles, lakes and islands. Hundreds of important battles have occurred in Scotland that have influenced the history of the world. Scotland is the ancestral home of the Celts and legends like the Loch Ness Monster. Scotland is the country that has inspired some of the most popular stories in the world such as Harry Potter and has been the setting for its important films and series such as Outlander. Scotland is our home, the place where we have raised a family and the place that has allowed us to do what we like the most: Telling the story of this beautiful country and showing it to you.
If you want to discover what the magical old town of Edinburgh hides, this is your tour. As we walk through the most emblematic and famous streets of the city, I will tell you all the stories behind each square, monument or tomb.
