Overview
More
Our visitors enjoy learning the history of Edinburgh through the eyes of an architect, as architecture becomes a canvas for narrating the complexities of social and political background. Curated and led by three architects/architecture graduates passionate about Edinburgh, our walking itineraries shed light on Scots Baronial and Post Modern Old Town, Neoclassical Georgian New Town, and the secluded lush valley of Dean Village. English, Mandarin, Russian, French and Lithuanian languages available.

We usually explore new places on our own, but decided to take this in-depth private tour to learn more about this fascinating area. We're so glad we did. Our guide, Olga, was extremely knowledgeable and a joy to spend time with. She explained the historical...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
