About this tour
It could be a half-hour walking tour that delivers you effortlessly to your restaurant booking. Or perhaps a few hours strolling the afternoon with stories designeed for architects, Walter Scott aficionados or historians
of crime and punishment.
Choose the tour, the time and the duration (up to 2hrs) – and let us do the rest.
With the largest group of Storytellers of any company, and a vast range of expertise, we can give your group a personalised version of any of our scheduled tours. We also have a selection of special interest-tours - from the greatest hits of Edinburgh to the intricate depths of the Enlightenment, anything’s possible.
The Palace? The Castle? The Blair Street Underground Vaults? Just ask.
Bespoke tours are for you and we limit numbers to give the very best experience. Got a bigger group? No problem – we just give you another Storyteller or two.
