COVID-19 AND YOUR SAFETY
Our face-to-face tours season has now ended, and will resume in April 2021, in strict compliance
with all COVID-19 safety regulations. Our self-guided audio walks remain available all year – however,
we strongly recommend all users check the current safety guidance from the Scottish Government at www.gov.scot.uk
FREE VIRTUAL AUDIO TOURS
We created these audio tracks during our lockdown spell, so that you can still explore Edinburgh’s wonderful Royal Mile by listening to the tracks while guiding yourself using Street View. As Edinburgh opens again, though, they’ll 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 French, German, Italian and Spanish)
DEEP ROYAL MILE AUDIO WALK
(St Giles’ to the Tron)
Created in the style of the virtual tours, this is an immersive, deep-dive 95-minute audio guide for independent touring, and ranges from the deep themes of Scotland’s history to the key moments that have echoed through Edinburgh’s story.

If you want to get to the very heart of Edinburgh, consider one of our private guided tours through the Old Town! We’ve gone deep into Edinburgh’s unique history, to find some of the oddest tales and most fascinating themes, all presented with our trademark friendly Edinburgh welcome!
