Get out of the hustle-and-bustle of Edinburgh for a day, take in stunning views of the city from the summit of an extinct volcano, and discover Edinburgh's unique history and folklore with a local guide.

With it's cobbled streets and winding lanes, there's no city quite as magical as Edinburgh. But have you ever ventured outside of the main city to discover its beautiful surroundings?

Over 2 and a half hours, we will walk a route through the scenic royal reserve of Holyrood Park, climbing up to the summit of Arthur's Seat, before descending and taking in spectacular views from the iconic Salisbury Crags. On the way, you'll see stunning views of Edinburgh and the surrounding areas, from the dockyards of Leith, the majestic Firth of Forth and the verdant hills of East Lothian.

The money raised from each tour supports in Child.org in their work in keeping mums, babies, and children in Kenya safe and healthy.The charity achieves this by running pregnancy support groups, sending health messages to pregnant women at home via SMS, and providing women and families with the tools and knowledge needed to keep themselves and their babies safe and well.
