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

A great way to see Edinburgh and get a bit of history and background of the city and the sites while trying some local dishes. We were a group of 5. We meet at hotel du vin. Allen is a wonderful guide. It is well organized and you get a good sampling of different cuisine and get to taste whiskey... More

We actually did both of Alan's tours and can't recommend them enough. It was our first trip to Edinburgh and gave us an opportunity to see parts of Edinburgh we would have never been able to find on our own...the excellent food tastings were just an added bonus. Alan's knowledge of the city is beyond impressive...like everyone we met in... More

Our walk was on a cool blustery day in July. The walk was wonderful, as we were toured through the streets of Edinburgh with accompanying history and background of what we were seeing. Our stops were very eclectic. We had both scotch and wine pairings provided with our tastes of food. Although a member myself, we were able to stop... More

Hi Thank you for your great review, although as you were already a member of the Scottish Malt Whisky I do feel on some aspects of Scottish life you were already a convert. Thanks Alan More

We were a group of 5 strangers the evening that Julie showed us around Edinburgh. We began our night at the beautiful Hotel du Vin and then wandered to Demi John, Crafters Barn, Scottish Malt Whisky Society, Le Di Vin & Ghillie Dhu. I appreciated the chance to get a "wee" taste of some of the local delicacies I'd never... More

Hi Thank you for your lovely review. I'm glad you enjoyed the mixture of places we visited woven with the history of the city as you walked between visits. You were correct that the last stop was unusually busy due to filming for the forthcoming vote in Scotland on Independence. But glad it didn't totally spoil your overall experience. As... More

My wife and I had a phenomenal experience with Eat Walk Edinburgh. Our tour guide was phenomenal, shared a lot of history with us, and took us to amazing food locations. Every bite we had was fantastic. I can't recommend Eat Walk Edinburgh enough. Their tour was worth every pound spent.

I was lucky enough to be the only one on this tour on this particular day. The 5 courses along with wine, whisky & liqueur with a walk between each course was a history lesson in reality. I felt like it was very easy to take in the surroundings and Alan has a very easy way of talking about the... More

Hi Thank you for your lovely review. Just to say that Demi Johns do ship their liqueurs all over the world so just visit their web site and you may still yet enjoy the Rhubarb vodka. Alan More

Edinburgh is a charming place, as was our lovely guide, Alan. This tour is a MUST do whilst visiting Edinburgh! Firstly, the guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. He provided us with little hearing ear phone packs so we could still walk around on the street and hear him talking above the traffic! He gave GREAT local anecdotes of the local... More

This was so so so great! We had so much good food and drinks and got to see a ton of Edinburgh along with gather some good suggestions from our tour guide (Alan) of where to go while we were there. Alan was very knowledgeable and fun!

We are regular visitors to Edinburgh and are fairly familiar with the history and character of the city but our guide Alan gave us a whole new insight! The food and drink venues visited were all absolutely excellent so much so that we have been back to a couple of them again. Well done Alan!
