Uncover one of Europe’s most beautiful cities.
Scheduled walking tours for anyone interested in Edinburgh's history:
from first-time visitors to long-term residents.
My scheduled walking tours give you the opportunity to experience Edinburgh and it's history from a different perspective.
There's no costumed theatrics or sensationalist stories because for me, Edinburgh's history doesn't need any dressing up!
What I offer is simple.
Friendly, relaxed and research-based walking tours that look at the "how's and why's" of the city's past through its industrial heritage, social history, urban design and cultural identity.
Scheduled Walking Tours
Taken in super-small groups and running regularly throughout the year each one offers a unique perspective to the city's rich history!
Bookings for my scheduled walking tours are done through Eventbrite; a simple, secure and safe global ticketing platform. Just follow the link below each tour description.
Please note that all tours must be pre-booked.
