Edinburgh’s city center is best discovered by foot.
Meet your private, fully-licensed guide and let them take you from the top of Royal Mile (in front of Edinburgh Castle), to Charlotte Square in the new town, always going downhill.
Along the way, you and your children will see some of the most iconic places of Edinburgh, as well as some of its best kept secrets. It all starts at the top of the hill, near the entrance of Edinburgh Castle, where the so-called witches were once burned at the stake. You’ll make your way down the hill on the Royal Mile, and pass through narrow alleys (called closes) to reach the Scottish National Gallery and Princes Streets Gardens.
Along the way, your guide will tell you all about the history of the city and how it was built, from the Old Town on the hill to the New Town to the north.
To make it even better for the children, they will play an orientation game which involves cracking codes as if they were on a secret agent mission just like James Bond. After all, MI6’s best agent, 007, lived in Scotland, and one of the iconic James Bond actors, Sean Connery, is himself from Scotland as well.
