Overview
Whether you’re short on time or keen to hit the sights in style, exploring UNESCO–listed Edinburgh by classic Mini Cooper is a great way to make your trip all the more memorable. With your guide at the wheel, visit landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle and the Grassmarket. Enjoy free time to explore the sites on foot, with lunch or dinner plus hotel pickup and drop-off included.
What to Expect
Choose a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your guide at your centrally located Edinburgh hotel. Then, take a seat in your Mini Cooper and spin onward through the city streets to begin your half-day adventure.

The perfect size for zooming along Edinburgh’s winding streets, the Mini Cooper is widely considered a design classic. Explore this UNESCO–listed city’s treasures and top attractions in style with your guide at the wheel, and reach the sites of interest with ease.

Head through Edinburgh's medieval Old Town to the rugged peak of Arthur's Seat—one of Edinburgh’s most popular vantage points. Here, enjoy sweeping views across the rooftops to the River Forth.

Hit 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 on foot.

Next, ride along the banks of the Water of Leith to pretty Dean Village, and visit the coastal neighborhood of Leith. Here, step off the tourist trail with a stroll along the scenic waterfront, and see a side of Edinburgh many visitors miss.

Finish with a traditional lunch or dinner in a local restaurant, then return to the city centre or your hotel to conclude your tour.

Please note: Arthur's Seat is closed to cars on Sundays, so will be not be visited.
