Private Half Day Morning Edinburgh Tour


Private Half Day Morning Edinburgh Tour On this tour, having a private car and driver-guide gives you the freedom to explore Edinburgh as you please. Choose from one of the below suggested itineraries or create your own in advance. Just let your agent know what you would like to see when booking.

Option 1: After being picked up from your hotel, begin your tour at Edinburgh Castle, where Mary Queen of Scots gave birth to James VI in 1566. After taking in the rich royal history and viewing Scotland's Crown Jewels, head down to the Grassmarket to explore the independent merchant shops and eateries. The market has a history almost as rich as the castle, having been Edinburgh's center of trade since the 14th century as well as the site of many public executions. While there, visit the statue of Greyfriars Bobby, a famously loyal dog who is said to have remained by his master's grave for 14 years. Finally, visit St. Giles Cathedral, known for its crown spire that dates back to the 15th century.

Option 2: Depart from your hotel and head south to Rosslyn Chapel, a church steeped in myth and legend. View the intricate stone carvings and decide for yourself what to believe! You may also recognize it as the church where Da Vinci Code was filmed. If you prefer, stop for lunch in the chapel's cafe, which serves fresh produce and home baking. Next, you'll visit Glenkinchie Distillery which was founded in 1837. After a tour of the production area, head to the bar for a tasting of the Glenkinchie Single Malt Whisky.
