Do you want to do the best Tours in Scotland? Well this is your place.

Tour description

Join us to discover the most stately part of the city of Edinburgh, without which the personality of Scotland cannot be understood: the cradle of the Scottish Enlightenment, the New Town or New City.

We'll talk about how the Enlightenment came to Scotland and the scale it took, giving birth to many of history's greatest writers, scientists and thinkers. Did you know that Edinburgh was once the city with the best literacy rate in the world?

But no, not all were male writers, doctors and artists, but there were also many women who did great things , although history sometimes relegates them to the background, we will recover and remember them on our tour!

We will also discover a very curious part of the history of Edinburgh, and this is none other than its Masonic lodge.

In this free tour we will visit:

  • History of the New Town
  • Scottish illustration
  • Princes Gardens
  • Rose Street
  • Dean Village
  • Water of Leith
  • women of scotland
  • National Portrait Gallery
  • sir walter scott
  • the suffragettes
  • And much more...

Do not miss this unique visit!
