What you'll do
This walking tour is a mix of history and Christmas jollity! I'll show you some of Edinburgh's main sights, as well as a few festive delights (from Xmas markets to Xmas lights). The festive period is a magical one, and Edinburgh sure knows how to celebrate. Let me show you the parts of Edinburgh that add sparkle and warmth in the darkest months of the year.
I grew up in a small seaside village 30 minutes from Edinburgh. A visit to the big city was always something exciting. And for the past five years I've been lucky to call this magical city home. From cobbled lanes to quirky cafés, there's always somewhere new to explore, and now I want to share that magic with you! I'm a natural explorer and have worked as a tour guide in different cities, and the past few years worked in the Scottish tourist industry. Let me put together the perfect itinerary for you! Current tours: Edinburgh Christmas Tour & Bike Tour- Edinburgh's Neighbourhoods. I'm also happy to put together custom, private tours.
