Highlights
  • View UNESCO–listed Edinburgh sites by Mini Cooper with your guide
  • Panoramic views across Edinburgh to the Forth River from Arthur’s Seat
  • Savor a traditional Scottish lunch or dinner at a local restaurant
  • Hassle-free round-trip travel from your centrally located Edinburgh hotel
What to expect
  • Choose a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your guide at your central Edinburgh hotel. Then, take a seat in your Mini Cooper and begin your half-day adventure with your guide at the wheel. Head through Edinburgh's medieval Old Town to the rugged peak of Arthur's Seat—one of Edinburgh’s most popular vantage points (not visited on Sunday as it's closed to cars that day) with sweeping views to the River Forth. Pass by famous landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile as your guide sheds light on Edinburgh’s colorful past, and perhaps hop out to explore the historic Grassmarket. Next, ride along the banks of the Water of Leith to Dean Village, and visit the coastal neighborhood of Leith. Here you stroll along the scenic waterfront, and see a side of Edinburgh many visitors miss. Finish with a traditional lunch or dinner at a local restaurant, and return to the city center or your hotel to end your tour.

Superb Tour To Get To Know Edinburgh!
Rowan was awesome! Showed up on time, was super-friendly, genuine, knowledgeable, and funny, and really gave us a sense of the city. I felt like he took us to places we wouldn’t have otherwise known about, and like I’m a lot more comfortable navigating on my own after being with him!

Specifically, he knew a lot about architecture and environmental topics, which my wife and I enjoyed very much since we’re into both those things.

I’ve been on tours before that seemed to drag, and this was the exact opposite of that. The time flew along and I wanted to go for another 4 hours!

The Real Edinburgh
Nov 2019
If you want to learn the real history of Edinburgh this is the tour for you. You will visit different areas of the city from Old Town to New Town to the coast. Along the way you will learn what life has been like over the last 500 years. No embellishments of facts like larger tour companies offer for entertainment. Rowan was my guide. Edinburgh is his home since birth. He is personable, genuine and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend Mini Mack Tours. I look forward to returning to Scotland and taking their Highlands Tour.

Half day Edinburgh tour in a Mini
Oct 2019
We had a great time on this tour. We have taken many tours over the years, from small private ones to large ones with high end groups. This was as good as any we’ve been on and better than most. Andy is very knowledgeable about Edinburgh and has a very personable and entertaining delivery. I had some reservations about the comfort of a small mini, but my wife and I were very comfortable and Andy was able to navigate some of the smaller roads to get us to quaint and interesting areas that a larger car wouldn’t be able to get to. Highly recommend!

Best way to see Edinburgh and make a friend along the way!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Andy and Rowan are so down-to-earth it is like having a good friend show you around the city. They show you the most interesting spots, tell you the best restaurants, and genuinely care about you having a great time. They are intimately familiar with the city and Scotland in general. This was by far the best thing we did in Edinburgh!

Brilliant 1/2 Day Tour of Edinburgh.
Aug 2019
We were picked up from our Hotel in Leith by Andy on time. The tour was tailored to suite our interests and included the spectacular views from Arthur's Seat and the Old Observatory. Andy took us to places we would never have seen on our own including a quiet tearoom and gardens by a lake. We could not believe we were near the heart of Edinburgh. Andy clearly knew his way about and was easy to talk to. We finished with a lunch and coffee before returning to our hotel. A great tour which we are happy to recommend.

Perfect Morning Tour
Aug 2019
Adam did an absolutely perfect job showing us the ins and outs of Edinburgh. He showed up exactly on time and seemed eager to show us a great time. The Minis are perfect for the narrow streets and heavy traffic, especially during the peak season. We really appreciated seeing the places that are off the 'beaten path'. We were also treated to a wonderful lunch spot! Thank you Adam for a great trip! And, by the way, these guys do trips to the Highland and Skye etc and are very knowledgable about all of Scotland.

So accommodating & fun
Had a fabulous fast 4 hours with Rowan. Highly recommend as a way to see as much as possible of Edinburgh before we headed to tour & tea at the castle. He was really super willing to accommodate our timeline. He was full of Scotland and Edinburgh facts, added great history.

Great tour of Edinburgh!! Highly recommend!!
Jun 2019 • Family
My family and I hadn’t been to Edinburgh before and booked a half day tour with Rowan on our second day in the city. The tour was exceptional! We had such a blast and Rowan took us all over: a local pub, a few villages and did some walking around. We’d highly recommend if you’re looking for a lighthearted and personal experience to get to know the different areas of the city with a little history mixed in. Thanks, Rowan!!!
