This tour passes through the UNESCO World Heritage area of the "New" Town which dates back to 1767! It is the largest Georgian example of town planning anywhere in the world. We will see many of the elegant homes, grand streets and architecture and learn about the people who lived and worked there. We then dive down below the city and walk along a river bank in what feels like a rural area hidden away below the city. The walk passes by beautiful green gardens where you can listen to the bird life and occasionally see the odd heron catching fish in the stream. Finally we finish in a hidden village which dates back to the 12th century and is only a stones throw away from the city centre. We learn all about the history of the people living there and the different circumstances the village has been through over the centuries.
Il tuo host
My small business "Edinburgh Welcome Tours" has now been officially recognised and has received a "Certificate of Excellence" in TripAdvisor. Thank you so much to all your wonderful reviews!! I love my city. I've lived back here for 15 years now! I like to show it from a local viewpoint! My favourite places are unusual ones that are off the beaten track which are often missed by many visitors. My aim is to show you these parts of Edinburgh as well as showing you the incredible history, culture and sights we have to offer. I set up "Edinburgh Welcome Tours" because I've been invited to homes all over the world and so I want to welcome visitors from everywhere to my own country of Scotland. I have 2 other AirBnB tours Highs and Hidden Lows Historic Old City I also run private group tours - please send me a message!
