History Walks.
The best way to really experience medieval Edinburgh is to follow your feet – and your guide!

We’ll reveal the closes and courtyards; sites and stories to give you a true sense of our past and our people.

Where the buses can’t take you and the guidebooks don’t show is where our city’s fascinating stories can be found...

We’ll help you discover our fabulous city and make sure you don’t miss the best sites and stories:

Ghost tours, history tours
Daytime, evening
Old Town, New Town
The Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and, exclusively, the Blair Street Underground Vaults
So we know we have a tour for everyone.

The True Story of Edinburgh’s Underground
With our exclusive access to the famously haunted Blair Street Underground Vaults, we can show you where the poor souls of Edinburgh's past still haunt her present.

We offer our scheduled tours:

Daily - we’ve always a tour to fit your plans
All year round - we’re here whenever you visit
