Historic Edinburgh Tours Ltd

Historic Edinburgh Tours is an award-winning walking tour company which takes guests around Edinburgh’s UNESCO World Heritage SIte on a number of guided tours.
Robert, our company owner, researcher and guide, is a local Edinburgh tour guide, was born here and has lived here all of his life. He’s an experienced primary school teacher and uses his 25+ years of classroom experience to help engage his guests.
We run private Edinburgh tours (this is our main keyword), around the Old Town and offer a number of different ‘themes’;
An Old Edinburgh tour – looking at some of the famous people, places and events within the Old Town.
A Greyfriars Kirkyard tour – where we visit one of the most historic burial grounds on the planet
A Royal Mile tour – we walk up the famous Royal Mile. Since Edinburgh has been the capital city of Scotland since the mid-1400s, this street has seen it all. One historian once said that she believed around 2/3 of Scotland’s important events happened on this single thoroughfare!
A Victorian Slums tour – By the 19th century, Edinburgh’s rich had moved into the plush New Town. The Old Town became an overcrowded slum area, where life was cheap and harsh. We reveal a very different side to Edinburgh’s history.
A Bonnie Prince Charlie in Edinburgh tour – come with us as we look at the people, Edinburgh events and the places which played a part in the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745.

We also offer a series of specially designed activity tours for primary school groups.
We run virtual tour versions of our Old Edinburgh tour, our Victorian Slums tour and our Bonnie Prince Charlie tour.

Historic Edinburgh Tours Ltd has won multiple awards from Tripadvisor. Two of our tours also hold Viator Badges of Excellence. We maintain an average rating of five-stars throughout our range of tours.

Diib Reviews by our featured members:

" It makes it so much easier to understand the various metrics (and therefore steps) needed to improve my ranking. I spoke to a customer support person last night - the reply was helpful, honest and quick. I really appreciated that"
