We look forward to welcoming visitors back onto our Edinburgh food & drink walking tours from the 1 June 2021 for people travelling together or from the same household.
All being well we will offer our regular daily tours from 7 June when Scotland should move to level 2.
After 7 June we will also offer private tours for people who would feel more comfortable to explore the cuisine of the city with their own local guide.
But our daily tours are a great way of meeting fellow travellers and swapping stories on your time or plans in Scotland.
Whichever type of tour you decide to take we look forward to showing you what this great city has to offer.

Below is information on the Edinburgh Old and New Town food tour.
The three-and-a-half hour Edinburgh 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 also have 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 Edinburgh 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.
