Meet your private, fully-licensed guide, and your private chauffeur at your hotel and hop on board a fully-equipped Mercedes V-class minivan for a sightseeing tour you will never forget.

Let them take you and your family to the major attractions and best kept secrets that should not be missed during your stay in Edinburgh. These highlights include Edinburgh Castle (which you can see from pretty much everywhere in town), the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Royal Mile, the Balmoral clock, Scotts Monument, the Royal Britannia and Arthur’s Seat. That final stop is where you will get a great view on the city of Edinburgh.

Our luxurious Mercedes V-class minivans are fully equipped for your children’s safety (baby seats, booster seats etc.). So, just relax and listen to your guide. Stops are programmed along the way for your comfort and viewing pleasure. And to make it extra special for the children, they will each get a fun-filled game booklet.



This tour is available in the following languages : English, French, Spanish

Is this a private tour?
You will have a private guide AND a private chauffeur. Apart from these 2 people, no one else will be joining. This is a private tour.
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
We recommend this tour for kids aged 6 or older, because they must know how to read and write in order to enjoy the fun-filled game booklet. But our family-friendly guide will be able to adapt to younger children if necessary. Baby seats or booster seats are available at no extra charge.
Are the parents staying with the children or separated?
We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).
How much time is spent in the minivan?
Most of the time will be spent in the minivan, but there are stops along the way to get a closer look at some of the beautiful things. You can even ask to stop and your private driver will follow your request (unless forbidden or if time is too tight).
Are we visiting the interior of the places mentioned?
Unfortunately, not. It would take too much time, and it would not be optimized for the children.
What kind of vehicle do you use?
Our Mercedes V-class Minivans are the most comfortable minivans, fully equipped with baby seats or booster seats (if necessary) and water bottles.
Will my teenage kids like the tour?
Sure, they will! They might not want to have the game booklet, but since it is a private tour, our professional guide will adapt their speech to keep your teenagers engaged and entertained throughout the tour.
