Eat walk Edinburgh offer two Foodies 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, 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 (1pm-4.30pm) which has five food stops with two wine tastings 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.

I booked this tour for the four of us as a christmas present. What a lovely surprise! Lots of information about the old town of Edinburgh, nice walk and very good venues we visited. New mixed drinks, delicious food and interesting information and tales about the people of Edinburgh. I absolutely can recommend this tour!

We have just returned to our hotel after thoroughly enjoying the Old and New Town tour. Julie was a great guide and we learnt lots about the city. We were taken to places we would never had found if we were on our own, and we had excellent company with the other people on the tour. Highly recommend.

What a great idea and a wonderful way to see parts of the city and find out some of the local history whilst experiencing some of the (very) local shops and have the chance to talk to the owners. I was a little unsure what to expect, but i must say our whole group really enjoyed the experience and all... More

These reviews on tripasvisor didn't let me down. I had a great time walking around Edinburgh and learning about the beautiful city. One thing I will say is that if you're looking to get full, this is not the tour you're looking for. It's a great chance to lightly taste a lot of what Edinburgh has to offer, not to... More

Hi Thank you for this lovely review. Not only were the 60 years olds keeping up with the younger ones on the tour walking wise they certainly helped put away quite a bit of extrra wine that was bought outwith the tour at a couple of the stops. It was a great day I thouroughly enjoyed the good company. Alan More

This was without question the best tour that I've done - Alan was very friendly and knowledgeable; and took us around parts of Edinburgh we wouldn't have seen otherwise. The food was lovely and some great alternatives were provided for me (I'm vegetarian), so I didn't feel I missed out on anything. It was the highlight of our trip to... More
