Mercat Tours

Hear Our Story, See our City...

We want your Mercat tour to give you a true sense of Scotland’s past that no guidebook can give – whether haunted or historic...

Why Make it Mercat?

The reason is simple! Our award-winning guides enjoy nothing more than bringing alive the stories of Edinburgh’s colourful people and past. We know it’s not just what you say, but how you say it…after all,

History is a damn good story, what it needs is damn good telling

– it’s what we believe.

Since we began in 1985, we are now the ONLY 5 star, highest awarded, largest walking tour company, with the most extensive selection of tours in Edinburgh.

Choosing Your Tour

To give you the chance to explore every nook and cranny of our fabulous city, and make sure you don’t miss the best sites and stories, we have:

  • Ghost tours and history tours
  • Daytime and evening
  • Old Town and New Town
  • Above ground and, exclusively, underground

So we know we have a tour for everyone. And when you join us, we will engage, enthral and entertain you – we promise.

Set in the heart of our bustling Old Town, surrounded by restaurants, shops and hotels, we are the perfect way to explore that little bit further.

We offer our scheduled tours:

  • daily

  • guaranteed departures

With a warm Scottish welcome, we’re ready to guide you back in time.
