Let’s Step Back in Time: Edinburgh’s Old Town Live Tour

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.

Hosted By Sarah

Sarah

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!
Come Walk With Me!

How does it work?

Live Tours are carried out by our hosts, who are outdoors, on location and connected live to you via video call at all times.

Live on Location

Live Tours aren’t virtual, they are live! Meaning we don’t use Google Streetview, nor will we show you a Powerpoint presentation.

Our hosts will walk around with you whilst being connected live via video call at all times. If we offer a Live Tour in Lima, it really means your host will actually walk through the streets of Lima with you!

Personal, Private and Exclusive

Even more personal than a regular phone call, your host will be connected to you via video call - and they will be connected only to you!

Live Tours aren't conference rooms full of strangers. Your host will be there exclusively for you, so you can ask them questions at any time, ask them to look at some details or even to quickly turn into a street off route - just for you!

Not only will you be able to travel the world, you will also get to know a local professional who is going to be thrilled to show you around and share their knowledge and experience with you :)

Invite your Friends along for free

Your host will only be connected to you, but you can invite up to 5 friends to enjoy the experience together - as long as you are all in front of one device, your device: your phone, tablet, laptop, or computer.

If your friends can't be with you, add a Group Ticket to your booking for an additional 5 devices!

Free cancellation up to 48 hrs

If you cannot reschedule, you can cancel your booking up to 48 hrs for a full refund.

Stabilised Camera

Some of our hosts use a gimbal to stabilise their phones for a super smooth experience! Look out for this feature in the listings.

What about timezones?

If you're in a different time-zone to your host, the website will show the selected time-slot in your local time in blue.

But not to worry, your host will double check the booked time with you and you can adjust timings if necessary!

How do I pay for my booking?

We accept all major Credit Cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal. WalkWithMe Tours will act on behalf of the host, so once you've made the payment, you don't have a payment obligation to the host anymore.
