What to expect

Explore the city of Edinburgh like never before and uncover the hidden gems of the Old Town.

There are over 80 closes (alleyways) leading off the Royal Mile. If only these ancient stone tunnels could talk, the stories they would tell. Unfortunately, walls can't talk, but your intrepid tartan-clad guide can. Investigate the more secluded nooks and crannies of the famous Royal Mile. Uncover fascinating history, magic and intrigue on a mysterious journey off the beaten track with your guide. You´ll visit hidden courtyards, historic closes and architectural treasures, each with a tall tale to tell. And see for yourself why Edinburgh is said to have been a great inspiration for J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books. Be enchanted by a Scottish love story, inspired by the celebrated poet and lyricist Robert 'Rabbie' Burns.

Discover a myriad of quirks and oddities tucked away in the lesser-known corners of this Unesco world heritage site.
