Какво ще правите

Seen the Old Town (with us, our another lovely set of guides!) but want more? This tour is perfect for anyone wanting to get away from the big crowds of the Royal Mile. Over the 2 hours, you'll see some of the oldest buildings in Edinburgh, the city's centre's only waterfall, Edinburgh's only river and maybe the local otters and other birdlife.

You'll meet Gains, Chris or David outside Castle Coffee our ticket office and coffee stand, and from there it's a short walk down to Dean Village.

From Dean Village, you'll walk down the Water of Leith, and see Dean Bridge, a magnificent feat of early 19th century engineering as well as an 18th century spa. After that, you'll see the artistic community of Stockbridge and parts of Edinburgh's Historic New Town (1769). To conclude we'll walk through Princes Street Gardens, a magnificent scenic area with tremendous views of Edinburgh Castle, hear the varied past of this park and the story of a very brave bear who served in World War Two!

Get away from the over-crowded Old Town and see the parts of the city you won't find by yourself!

Bring your camera!

We walk downhill the first hour, then the last 30mins is slightly more uphill

Hi, I'm Chris! I'm a local guide in Edinburgh. I've been guiding for 7 years now and I still love nothing more than meeting nice people and showing them my city. Together with my colleague, Gains, we are looking forward to showing you around one of Edinburgh's best kept secrets.

Gains has a PhD in Scottish History and Chris actually lives in Dean Village. We have made a tour that combines the best of local history and anecdotes, giving you a great insight into what life in one of Edinburgh's hidden gems is really like.

We run the tour at this time partly because it's quiet but also because sometimes you see local wildlife that you wouldn't during the day.

This tour is perfect for anyone wanting to escape other tourist

You'll walk through the historic Dean Village, down the Water of Leith, and then back up to the city centre via Edinburgh's New Town (1770......not so new!)

Gains was a fantastic tour guide: he was very knowledgeable, was able to answer all our questions, and was very polite. The group size was ideal, as it was on the smaller side, so it felt more personable and it was easy to converse with everyone. All in all, I would highly recommend this tour!

Gains did a great job showing us some “off the beaten track” venues and providing a nice history and summary of the locations.

Great tour with lots of personal anecdotes about Dean Village from someone who lives there. Chris was always happy to answer any questions and tailor the experience towards his guests.

Really wonderful tour. It was a beautiful day and the places Chris took us to were gorgeous and I don’t think I would’ve stumbled into them on my own. I also loved the history about Auld Reeky! Thanks again Chris :)

We had a fantastic experience walking around the quieter and lovelier parts of Edinburgh with Gains our guide. He was so knowledgeable and friendly and was able to answer literally every question asked of him - what a mind! Would absolutely highly recommend this experience. Kate and Andy Lovett. York.

This tour was totally wonderful! It ended up being one-on-one with Gains. He was super kind and knowledgable, and the walk was a great circle that taught me a lot about the city, including seeing the childhood home of one of my favorite authors! I would so, so recommend this tour for anyone looking to find an oasis from the bustle of Princes Street. Cannot recommend it enough.
