The Mercat Deal
Good for You, Good for Others
The Mercat Deal
You come first. That’s the Mercat Deal.
Our team, visitors and locals of the Old Town are the Mercat community we’ve cared about since 1985. As a local and independent family business, we respect and support like-minded people to guarantee the very best experience of Edinburgh, for everyone.
Clarity, honesty and reliability are at the core of what the Mercat Deal stands for, so you can trust what we say and do.
These are the promises we’ve always kept with you:
- Guaranteed departures, year round
- 5-star storytelling experiences awarded since 2005
- Exclusive access to the Blair Street Underground Vaults
- Ethical, Living Wage employer and GTBS GOLD award for sustainability
Good for You, Good for Edinburgh
Choose us to benefit yourself and others.
We love Edinburgh. Building our team and supporting our local community has helped us thrive for 35 years. As of today, you can be part of the story too.
Here’s how the Mercat Deal works;
- Storytelling is good for your well-being – let your imagination soar!
- Walking is good for you and the environment – safe, healthy and low-impact
- Our ethical, Living Wage family business is good for our team and community
To put it simply, choosing Mercat means supporting a responsible employer, rooted in our local community - read more of the story here.
