Things to do in Edinburgh

We would like to suggest other things to do during your stay that we think complement our tour and help you build up a feel for what Edinburgh and the surrounding area are about. 


Local Eyes Tour

Chris runs private and group tours to North Berwick, the Highlands and in Edinburgh. He has a good sense of humour, watch his video on his website, and has excellent Tripadvisor reviews. So, by all means, try his but only after you have tasted one of ours.

Iconic Tours

Another great way to see Edinburgh while learning how to use your camera, from the latest DSLR to the now not so humble camera phone. Will can show you many tricks of the trade, how to get the best out of your camera as he walks you around the streets of the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh.
