Edinburgh Food & Drink Walking Tours

 All bars and restaurants in Edinburgh are presently not allowed to sell alcohol and some haven’t re opened. So we will not be able to run tours during this period.

Take care

When bars/restaurants are operational again, for the rest of 2020, and a little way into 2021 we will run private Old and New Town food & drink walking tours.

This is to conform to social distancing requirements and ensure your enjoyment of our food tour.

Edinburgh Old and New Town Tour

Due to COVID-19 our Old and New Town food tour in 2020 will be offered only as a private food tour for your party whether it be 2 people or 10 people. This is to ensure your own enjoyment and ensure we maintain socially distancing criteria.

We are hopeful by 2021 we will be able to provide our regular Old and new town food tour where we take up to 8 people out on tour. (But even if only two people are booked on our regular tours they still go out).

Below is information on the Old and New Town tour that you will experience whenever you book.

The three-and-a-half hour Edinburgh Old and New Town food tour explores both the medieval Old Town of Scotland’s capital and its elegant Georgian New Town. Don’t be put off by the name New Town, yes the Old Town does date back in part to the 1100’s but the New Town dates back to the 1700’s so is worth a visit.

There are five food stops en route, three of them with a drink tasting. All of the stops have been carefully chosen not only to highlight Scotland’s iconic food and drink but also because many of the venues are much loved by local residents. This food tour takes you off the tourist trail.

As well as delving deep into Scotland’s natural larder, the Old and New Town food tour illustrates Edinburgh’s past and present; its history and the day-to-day reality of 21st century living in such a historical city.

Guests will be given audio headsets so you can listen live to the guide as you walk at your own pace or stop to take photos. Our daily regular food tour size is limited to 8 people so you all get a chance to get to know each other on the tour. (During 2020 we will be running only private tours)

The Edinburgh Old & New Town food tour takes place Monday to Saturday at 1pm and Monday to Thursday at 5pm. Private tours are available at other times.

The Canongate Brunch Tour

 Eat Walk Edinburgh also offers a mid-morning tour of the Canongate, the lower half of Edinburgh’s fascinating Royal Mile.

The Canongate tour stops at a mix of eateries, bars, and shops. Visiting local shops provides the opportunity to meet local shopkeepers, who love to chat about their produce and have some tasty samples to try.

Weaving between venues, the tour visits some of the (intriguing) nooks and crannies that are a feature of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town. The guide will explain the local history and stories of these lesser known sights
