Full description
A must during your visit to Edinburgh, Edinburgh and the Old Town form one of the most beautiful cityscape in the world, inscribed by UNESCO as a World heritage Site. The charm and character of the Old Town will hit you as you step into the Scottish capital city.  It retained its many narrow passageways that line the Royal Mile called "closes" and "wynds" which you will explore during your tour.

Along the way you will follow the footsteps of the famous Queen of the Scots, Franco-Scottish, who strongly impacted on Scotland's history, Mary Stuart. You will see many historic buildings such as Holyrood Palace, the Parliament buildings, and of course Edinburgh castle that dominates the city on top of its volcanic rock.
