One Perfect Edinburgh Day

Custom-created full day private tour/shore excursion - group prices from £450

Custom Created for you

Apart from our themed tours, we can custom-create for you One Perfect Day in Edinburgh! Whether you are based on land or sea, 7 Hills Tours’ driver/guides Moray and Amanda will create a tour for you, following your own interests to explore our lovely old city and country. In our luxury hybrid EV, you’ll be:

 

  • Touring in a most eco-friendly way
  • Enjoying a great Scottish welcome from your guide
  • Being met and dropped off at your hotel or vessel, so you’ll have no transport worries whatsoever!

OUR THEMES

We’ll design your day with you, using our decades of Scottish knowledge and experience. What’s more, the tour is so flexible that we can design separate itineraries to be ready to give you a wonderful tour, whatever the weather!

And what is there to see? Well, the following ideas are just the tip of the iceberg:

Are you a history fan?

Let us drive you round the New Town, or guide you into the alleyways of the incredible Royal Mile, leading from the Castle to Holyrood Palace, home of kings and queens for 500 years!

Economics?

We can show you the alleyway where the overdraft was invented, and the corner of an Old Town cemetery that’s the resting place of Adam Smith himself!

Are you a bookworm?

We can show you where Robert Louis Stevenson was born and raised, the mean streets of Trainspotting, the genteel world of Alexander McCall Smith, or the house where Walter Scott met Robert Burns for the one and only time – and why not have coffee at the very tables where J.K. Rowling first conjured up Harry Potter?

Or a birdwatcher?

Take a boat trip round the incredible Bass Rock off North Berwick, one of the world’s greatest Gannet colonies.

Whisky Fan?

We can take you to the city’s best whisky bars for a dram from a choice of over 300, or even to our local single malt distillery, Glenkinchie, in East Lothian.

Sports & Wellness?

Did you know that Edinburgh has beautiful Victorian swimming pools, Europe’s longest artificial ski slope, and a wonderfully scenic municipal golf course?

Is 'Outlander' your favourite show?

Lallybroch is just a short drive away, and all round the Old Town are other locations where you will expect to see Claire and Jamie any moment!

Or have you seen 'Mary, queen of scots'?

We can show you where she was born at Linlithgow Palace, and where she lived in Edinburgh – even her own harp and fabulous needlework!

Do you like nature?

Hike with us up our majestic extinct volcano, Arthur’s Seat, or explore Edinburgh’s greatest woodland walk, the tranquil Hermitage of Braid and see the gorgeous view from adjacent Blackford Hill.

romantic landscapes?

Come to the beautiful Border country, and see Walter Scott’s favourite view over the Eildon Hills, as well as the resting place of Robert the Bruce’s heart at ancient Melrose Abbey. Or north-west into the Highlands, to the picturesque Trossachs and the quaint town of Callander…

Are you an Art Lover?

Edinburgh has fine galleries, whether your taste is Van Dyck or Dali! And if you love Art Deco (one of our specialities), we have some gorgeous and unexpected architecture to show you!

A fan of the Royal Family? We have not just the Queen’s Edinburgh home at Holyrood, but her former floating palace too, the Royal Yacht Britannia…

Design your day with us!

From all of the above and more, you’re free to pick and choose to make one incredible, exhilarating day, all for one tour price plus meals and admissions.

 

And what about lunch?

From Fish and Chips at the beach out of a paper bag, to Michelin star gourmet cooking in five-star hotels, Edinburgh can give you it all. We’ll find with you just the right place to stop for lunch, to compliment your tour!
