Edinburgh was granted the great honour by UNESCO of becoming the first ever World Heritage City of Literature in 2004 - so perhaps you would like to book a tour that focuses on the city as an inspiration to writers through the centuries, such as Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson. Or you could be even more specific and choose to concentrate on the city's links to a certain boy wizard, the recent Outlander phenomenon or Ian Rankin's famous detective, Inspector Rebus among many others.

Are you interested in the religious history of Edinburgh or alternatively the city's folklore and legends?

Edinburgh has so many sides to her character and we have guides with expert knowledge on just about any topic you care to think of. Whether you would like to discover the city's great medical and scientific legacy or focus on a particular historic figure, such as Mary Queen of Scots, we know all the relevant places, facts and stories.

Scottish politics, whisky, military history, perhaps a foodie, photography or even a shopping based tour - you name it, we can cater to your specific interests!
