About Go Quest Adventures - Edinburgh

At Go Quest Adventures, we are turning the streets of Edinburgh into an Adventure Playground! The Edinburgh Quest is a fun and engaging way to explore the Old Town/Royal Mile area of Edinburgh from a whole different perspective. Think walking tour, meets treasure hunt with an escape room twist!

During your Quest, unlock a hidden trail by finding clues, solving puzzles and completing team challenges, earning points along the way all self-guided through the Go Quest Adventures app on your mobile device. See the city's highlights, explore it's hidden gems and learn some fun, quirky facts along the way. We guarantee that even locals will spot or learn something new!

As the Quest is self guided, you can:

Start your Quest whenever you want, get instant access with nothing to print off from home.

Go as fast as you want and try to top the leaderboard, or go at your own pace, stopping for rest breaks along the way or exploring the areas more thoroughly.

Add up to 5 people to your Quest for one low price.

Your Edinburgh Quest will start at Edinburgh Castle and lead you down the Royal Mile, in and out of closes where you will explore and discover Edinburgh’s history, maybe a secret garden, possibly a ghost or two and of course the end of the world. And fans of Harry Potter and the Outlander series won’t be disappointed. Along the way, you and your team will be involved in solving puzzles and completing challenges as you discover all that makes Edinburgh one of the most charming cities in all of Scotland.

So put on some comfy shoes (this is an outdoor walking adventure) and get ready to explore the sights, discover hidden gems and ultimately, conquer your Edinburgh Quest!

Edinburgh Castle
Grassmarket
St Giles Cathedral
Greyfriars Kirkyard
