Old Town/Castle Tour

Private Castle and Old Town

This Private Tour combines a guided walk around Edinburgh's most historic building and residential area. We recommend this tour for anyone with very limited time in the city.

The tour begins with a 2 hour exploration of the Old Town's many hidden streets and "closes" (alleyways). We focus on Edinburgh Castle for the last hour, taking in the history, atmosphere and amazing views. Don't forget your camera!

This tour is subject to the castle’s availability. Once you book, we will reserve your castle tickets for you and email you to confirm your booking within 24 hours. We’ll bring your castle tickets along on the day.

We recommend booking at least 5 days in advance for this tour in summer. For last minute bookings, email or phone us and we’ll do our best to find a suitable time!

This tour is perfect for:
- Anyone wanting an intimate Guided Tour of the Castle
- Anyone with very limited time in Edinburgh
- Larger groups (School/Cruise Ship/Families/Friends)

What happens if Local Eyes Tours can't buy our Castle tickets?
- We contact you to try and find another suitable time
- If there is no other suitable time, we can suggest another suitable tour
- If neither of these options suit you, we send you a full refund
