Edinburgh, Scotland Culture, History
  • Languages
    English, Italian
  • Duration
    60 Minutes

If you want to discover Edinburgh’s fascinating past and hear the stories of its people and its illustrious inhabitants, join me on this 1 hour walking tour, exclusively created to make your experience unforgettable.

We will start at the very top of the Royal Mile, close to the stunning Edinburgh Castle which has a vital place in Scottish history with tales of royals and murders. We will then see the place where witches were once burnt at the stake, which nowadays hosts one of the most famous festivals in the World. We will  then explore some of the charming and spooky small streets, here called “Closes” and hear stories of everyday life in the middle-ages, when rich and poor would live elbow to elbow and the challenges they would face.

We will then travel downhill ending the tour in the heart of the Old Town: the High Street.

    Sarah was absolutely amazing. She braved the cold with the video to show us beautiful Edinburgh. Lots of fun facts about the Royal Mile, royalty, and “closes”. We really appreciated the extra pages of our brochure about the Robertson clan. It is always very meaningful to learn about where your family comes from. A huge thank you for making our virtual tour so very special.

Hello, my name is Sarah, I am a qualified Blue Badge tourist guide in English and Italian, part of the Scottish Tourist Guides Association, the European Federation of Tourist Guide Associations and the World Federation of Tourist Guide Associations.

My main passions are Scottish history, human beings and storytelling, that is why I became a tour guide.
Being empathetic is a fundamental skill when working with people, that is why my tours are different according to the age, nationality, and needs of my customers. Delivering tours, for me, means also to have a good time and my enjoyment is infectious!

Edinburgh is a vibrant jewel immersed in history, culture and marvellous landscapes and it will be my pleasure to help you discover this wonderful city through my eyes.

I can't wait to meet you!
