Eva, our tourguide gave us a wonderfull tour through the old city/royal mile. So many stories, what a history this town has. I really recommend this tour to anyone.
This Edinburgh historical tour begins at a designated meeting point in Edinburgh’s Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Following a route filled with medieval cobbled streets and alleys, learn about dramatic historical events and tick off Royal Mile monuments such as St. Giles Cathedral, the Mercat Cross, and Canongate Kirk.
Continue to Castle Hill to enjoy panoramic vistas of Edinburgh before gliding past long lines outside of Edinburgh Castle with your skip-the-line admission ticket. Inside, embark on a guided tour that covers the Royal Palace, Stone of Destiny, and the Honours of Scotland.
Bid farewell to your guide at the castle.
