Not only is Edinburgh the leading festival city in the world but it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is packed full of breathtaking landmarks and beautiful architecture. Enjoy all this and more with a City Sightseeing Tour!
Be blown away by the elegance of the Georgian New Town or the narrow wynds of the Old Town, walk the along the famous Royal Mile where you’ll find the 17th century Palace of Holyroodhouse, the modern parliament building and the prehistoric extinct volcano famously known as Arthur’s seat.
Go exploring in Edinburgh Castle, where you’ll find the oldest crown jewels in the British Isles, the luxurious Royal Palace and the Stone of Destiny, a powerful and ancient symbol of Scottish Monarchy.
Take a trip to Edinburgh during winter and see this exciting city lit up by the magical christmas markets. Taste some delicious food from countries around the world, enjoy mulled wine (parents only of course) and stuff your face with cakes, fudge and other sweet treats, but not before you have some fun on the fairground rides!
The 60 minute tour has 14 tour stops and you can hop on and off at as many of these as you like. You will also hear lots of tales of Edinburgh’s gruesome past along the way with the Horrible Histories commentary, written by children’s writer Terry Deary.
