One explores Edinburgh's Old & New towns and the other tour the lower half of the Royal Mile called the Canongate. On each of these tours you will visit visit unusual/hidden restaurants, bars and shops, taste dishes specially prepared for you. Sample individually selected drinks (beers, wine and whisky), talk to the chefs/owners and discover the history behind the properties. The Old & new town tour ( 2pm-5.30pm) is the original tour which tastings ensure you will not need to worry about dinner in the evening while the Canongate tour (10am-1pm) takes care of 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. « less

I went on this tour almost a week ago with guide Alan (we were the family from Seattle, with the other couple from San Diego). We went to 6 places, had 5 courses of food (a starter, 2 main dishes, cheese and charcuterie, and dessert, as well as 2 wine tastings and a special whisky tasting. The whole evening was... More

This was such a unique way to experience the city of Edinburgh. Starts off in Old Edinburgh and some of the tale-telling stories of the past, then peruses through the city to New Edinburgh (although by American standards, it's all "old"). Great food, I especially enjoyed the Haggis! This tour may seem a little bit expensive, but I found it... More

Nice few hours walking through the big attractions of Edinburgh, with very interesting historical perspectives on this beautiful city. Mixed in with excellent food stops (around 3 I think) and a few cheese/wine/whisky stops chucked in there too! Worth a visit for tourists, and we had a Scottish couple in the tour too who also discovered new things about their... More

Tom did our tour, there was 12 girls and he somehow managed to keep us all entertained! Would be a nice idea for a hen party, maybe. We saw some of the city, learnt a few things and had a chance to relax and chat over gorgeous food too :-)

My brother & sister-in-law were having a weeks holiday in Edinburgh last month and we gave them the Old & New Town tour as a special anniversary gift. They haven't stopped raving about it! They found all the venues very interesting and admit they wouldn't have come across them under their own steam. Alan was a great guide full of... More

My husband and I were given the tour as a Christmas gift and what a fantastic gift!! Visited great places some of which we wouldn't have found on our own but will be going back to. Not only was the food (and drink) wonderful but picked up some interesting information about 'Auld Reekie' that we didn't know before going out... More

Excellent tour. Went with a friend and it ended up being just the two of us with Alan, who was incredibly knowledgeable of the city and chose some wonderful destinations for us to eat and drink at and experience. Without this tour, we wouldn't have gotten to experience some of the most fantastic flavours Edinburgh truly has to offer. Would... More

One of my friends recommended the Eat Walk Edinburgh tour to me, and while it might have appeared pricy, it was definitely worth it! Alan was an excellent guide who was very knowledgable about Edinburgh and shared several great stories. I was worried that being a vegetarian would hamper my experience, but Alan ensured I was well taken care of... More

Hi Thanks for writing a lovely review and raising the point that all the venues we visit are more than happy to meet special dietary requests. That was made easier by you letting us know your needs at time of booking. Alan More

Alan's tour made me appreciate Edinburgh more. I realized how exciting and diverse the city is. I loved the combination of eating and walking. I felt satisfied, but not stuffed; which is a very good thing. I also had haggis for the first time since I have been in Edinburgh from January. It was so good, such a wonderful first... More
