One of Scotland’s most attractive cities, Edinburgh is somewhere everyone wants to see; full of history, beautiful architecture and hidden gems.

On this tour, you’ll get to see the most famous sights - and secret treasures - which will make you fall in love with the city. Stand on top of Calton Hill, visit the Old Town, explore Dean Village and experience the best that Edinburgh City has to offer with Hopscotch.

Your tour is entirely private: just you and your own group (of up to 7 people). With a door-to-door service, we will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel - or where ever you would like - because we love to be flexible and make the whole experience about you.

We are also dedicated to preserving the beauty of Scotland, and that’s why we offset our carbon footprint and minimise our impact on the environment.

What To Expect

Calton Hill
Also known as Monument Hill, this is a fantastic spot to look over Edinburgh.

From here, you’ll be able to see Edinburgh Castle, Leith, the Old Town and the New Town. You might recognise the Monument from pictures, postcards or Pinterest, and that’s exactly why you’ll love this part of the tour. It’s a beautiful spot where your guide can tell you all about the history of Edinburgh - and point out all the landmarks as you go.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Dean Village
A true hidden gem, Dean Village is somewhere you might miss if travelling alone.

With Hopscotch, we’ll make sure you see all the best sights and make memories to last a lifetime.

Upon entering Dean Village, you’ll be transported into another world, where cobbled streets and quaint houses sit on the banks of the Water of Leith.

Historically, the village milled water and grains, and you can still spot many of the remains if you know where to look - and our guides do.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

New Town
Although the New Town is not so ‘new’, it was originally built in the 1700s to give the wealthy a place to stay out-with the crowded streets of the city.

All through the area, you’ll see typical examples of Georgian Townhouses and architecture and it’s now classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Arthur's Seat
At the top of this volcanic Cragg, you’ll get spectacular birds-eye views over Edinburgh and the surrounding hills.

Your guide will point out the New Scottish Parliament Building and Holyrood Palace - the official residence for King Charles.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Contrasting old with new, Edinburgh is full of surprises. In Leith, you’ll get to see both sides with Edinburgh’s ports and docks.

It’s also in Leith where Mary Queen of Scots’ first arrived back in Scotland after her time in France. You can imagine it looks very different today.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Old Town
The Old Town of Edinburgh is perhaps the most famous. Here you’ll get to see Edinburgh Castle, the cobbled streets of the Royal Mile and maybe St Giles’ Cathedral.

The Castle is not part of the tour, but we can organise it if you’d like. We want to help you have the best, possible experience in Edinburgh!
