Get hands on with history on a tour of Edinburgh's ancient streets. Experience the city with a born-and-bred local and see how the country has transformed through the centuries.


  • Check out the grave of John Knox
  • The original Scottish parliament
  • The heart of mid lothian
  • Secrets of the Royal mile
  • The mysterious closes of the old town


In this tour authenticity is everything, I was born and grew up on the very streets I’ll show you and I’ll be dressed in full traditional Scottish gear complete with all the weaponry. With over 15 years of experience as a tour guide in Edinburgh I can answer your questions, recommend things to do, places to eat and all the best bars in the city. This tour is funny, filled with all the foul language you’d expect from a Scotsman and told with a sincere passion and love for the city you’re in. See the Scottish capital through the eyes of someone who’s lived and loves it. I'll take you around the old town, seeing the things such as the original Scottish parliament, St Giles Cathedral, all the best closes and alleys of the old town, all culminating in stunning views overlooking the new town
