I will take your small private tour group on a fascinating journey through the centuries as we walk the Old Town of Edinburgh. Here you will see a building as old as the 1130s and a tavern first established in 1516! At certain times of the year I shall also take you onto Edinburgh Castle Esplanade. As part of your small private Old Town tour. From there you will enjoy a panoramic view of the south of our city.

I will also tell you of the darker aspects of life in Edinburgh from times long passed, including execution sites. Where did they take place? Who were the people who lost their lives there and what were their crimes? We will visit Greyfriars graveyard, one of the most famous medieval kirkyards in the world. Whatever your taste I can tailor our time there to suit it. The meaning of symbols on gravestones, The Covenanters, body snatchers, and literary inspiration.

If you have Harry Potter fans in your group I can show you the resting places of Tom Riddle and many other series characters.

In hours of darkness, you can become very afraid – in perfect safety of course! – with a Ghosts and Horrors tour I use either Greyfriars or Canongate graveyards at different times of the year.

 I am sure you will also enjoy a small private Great Inventors tour which takes us through The New Town, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We also offer small private tours of Edinburgh Castle & the Canongate

Especially for the younger generation on your small private tour, I have an interactive activity sheet to entertain the full duration of your tour. Your younger group members can even win a special prize!

 I have a large number of five-star reviews. Please enquire for further information.

    Fraser gave an incredible tour of Old Town Edinburgh – the highlight of our visit. He tailored the tour to our special situation and gave us valuable insight to the history of Edinburgh. He really made it come alive.
