Enjoy a great day out with a private tour to Edinburgh (Auld Reekie)! The City is an amazing place filled with history, character and energy in abundance. There is so much to see and do here but we make sure you experience the best. We start the day with a scenic drive through the Kingdom of Fife and then into the heart of the City with a tour around all the special places of interest. You'll have opportunity to visit major attractions such as the Royal Yacht Brittania and/or Edinburgh Castle and/or Holyrood Palace together with a leisurely walking tour (optional) through cobbled streets, closes, wynds and courtyards of the old town with plenty opportunity to experience the ambience and vibrant energy. Perhaps lunch in a local pub/tavern followed by some free time to stroll. A truly mesmerizing day out especially during August when the Festival is in full swing.
