COVID-19 AND YOUR SAFETY

Your safety is our first priority as we come out of lockdown and into a new season of touring. Our walking tour range is fully available, and will be delivered in accordance with Covid-19 safety guidelines; these currently include social distancing, face coverings for guide and guests, and hand sanitiser availability. Our vehicle tours are unfortunately suspended currently; once they can reopen, the vehicle will be disinfected before your tour, face coverings should be worn in the vehicle, and hand sanitiser will be available and used by your driver and guide. As guidance changes, we will be updating our procedures accordingly.

FREE VIRTUAL AUDIO TOURS

We created these audio tracks during our lockdown spell, so that you could still explore Edinburgh’s wonderful Royal Mile by listening to the tracks while guiding yourself using Street View. As Edinburgh opens again, though, they also make fantastic and free walking guides to the historic top section of the Royal Mile, from the Castle gates to Lawnmarket. (Part 1 of the tour is available also in Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish)
