Tour description

Do you have little time to explore the city and want to see everything? On this complete tour we invite you on a walk that will begin with an introduction to the origins of this beautiful city, when the Romans and Celtic tribes faced each other in bloody battles. Then we will talk about the kingdom of Northumbria and the transition to the Middle Ages. On the north side , we will walk around Princess Street towards the castle to visit the iconic Royal Mile and its jewels. We will talk about literature and philosophy . Then we will enter the south side , the old area, to learn about the history of Maria Estuardo; religious conflicts ; The life of Maggie Dickson and Grassmarket . We will tell you where to eat and where not to ; what are the best pubs and where to shop. We will also tour ancient walls , the exteriors of the National Museum and Greyfriars Cemetery, places that inspired JK Rowling to write Harry Potter. We will end at the famous “instagram spot” on Victoria Street , where you can take photos, have lunch and rest in front of the beautiful views of this dream city.
