Owner description: Eat walk Edinburgh offer two Food walking tours. One explores Edinburgh's Old & New towns and the other the lower half of the Royal Mile called the Canongate. On each of these tours you will visit unusual/hidden restaurants, bars and shops. There will be five food tastings and three drink tastings on the tour. The guide will talk about the history of the area as you walk between venues. The Old & new Town tour (1pm-4.30pm) which has five food stops with a Edinburgh Raspberry Gin, Scottish beer and a single cask malt whisky tasting ensuring you will not need to worry about dinner in the evening. The Canongate tour (10am-1pm) enjoys six stops including a Bloody Mary cocktail and breakfast canapes to get the tour off and running. By the end there will be no need for lunch. The Old & New town tour was recommended in BBC Good Food Magazine as a "Don't miss" thing to do in Edinburgh. Delicious magazine also has it down as a must do.

The information was great and our tour guide was wonderful! We had a great experience! The only thing that would have been better is if we didn't have to wait so long for our food at a couple of restaurants. I'd give this experience a 4.5 :)

Thanks for taking the time to write a review and I glad to hear on the whole you did enjoy the tour.

We are at the mercy of the venues, we try to select good venues to try the food and they are the ones that are busy. But we do phone ahead to let them know we are on our way to speed up the service, but sounds like that this did not work on this occassion, sorry.

The tour lasted almost four hours and was great fun. We had food in 5 different venues and drinks in 3 of them all while being educated on Edinburgh and it’s history. We got to see lots of Edinburgh that we would otherwise have missed. A fabulous way to get an introduction to a city.

Thanks for taking time to write a review I am glad you enjoyed the tour.

The tour normally last around 3.5 hours but I do say if people are really enjoying themselves it can sometimes over run.

We enjoyed the food, the venues and the tour around Edinburgh. It was a really great way to get to know Edinburgh and enjoy great food. Thanks Alan
