About this tour

There is an Edinburgh for everyone. 

A daytime wander or evening stroll.  The great thinkers that changed the world of law, or the dark characters who broke them...

You simply share what you're curious to see and hear and our team will craft a tour to suit your private group. 

Our Storytellers can blend tales of politics and drama, science and scandal leaving you inspired and surprised by a city rich with hidden tales and sights. 

With your memories formed share a crafting workshop where you'll make a unique gift as a momento of the day.


Crafting Your Own Souvenir

Keyring or notebook? Whichever you choose, social enterprise The Edinburgh Remakery, will provide a professional tutor and all (upcycled!) materials needed to guide you through an interactive exclusive workshop. 

Relax and make your very own 'green' gift knowing you're learning valuable skills to repair, reuse, and repurpose all of which which play a crucial role in tackling the climate emergency - and whilst having fun!

The toughest choice is whether to keep it or share it...
