Hello and welcome to the best city in the world! This is a must for any true explorer! On our adventures, we will visit some of the city's most interesting monuments, family-owned independent shops, enchanting streets, and the hidden gems, that you probably won't find on your own. We will dive into the histories and personalities that define the capital and its individual neighbourhoods most. ▉ Plan with a few souvenirs in mind as we have exclusive discounts at these indie businesses. ▉ The walk covers 6 must-see areas that are nearly impossible to find in just a few hours. We will explore sites and historical buildings inside and out and learn what makes Edinburgh one of the most important cities in the world. Along the way, we'll take in the city’s breathtaking skyline from Calton Hill. Only a few minutes uphill and it's worth it :) ▉ For lunch, we will take a break at a groovy street food market with veggie and plant-based options. ▉ You will walk away with my independent guide map, with 100+ recommendations :) All my experiences are LGBTQ friendly, everybody is welcome! I found a lot of joy crafting this walk together, my goal is to give you a comprehensive Edinburgh experience, filled with all its best social and cultural aspects while staying true to the history that shaped the city. Looking forward, David
Hello and welcome to the best city in the world! I have founded Edinburgh's independent guide project - Alternative Edinburgh - a name derived from my multi-stop approach to city exploration. I am glad to say that running boutique experiences are my full-time commitment and passion. The goal is to cover it all when it comes to the hidden gems, history & stories, food, music, art and of course shopping for unique finds. My experiences are designed to give you real insider access to Edinburgh's vibrant local lifestyle, culture & rich history, carefully crafted, fun and social away from the busy tourist hot spots ;) Let's explore! Best, David ▉ Superhost 2018, 2019 ▉ For private groups, corporate events or special requests please drop a message. ▉ Find out more about me and my other experiences at: alteredin.com IG@alteredinburgh
Alternative guide map to Edinburgh - tailored for the curious explorer, curated by me.
Our playground will be the UNESCO World Heritage New Town, Old Town, Calton Hill, Royal Mile, Dean Village and more ... Walking terrain is medium and it's around 3.7 mi/5.6 km with plenty to see, so please plan with a flexible finish time.
A big smile and the sense of adventure.
Edinburgh is spectacular in all weather conditions, no rain or wind can stop us from having a good time. Depending on the tempo we might spill over time. For the planners ;) Sunglasses and a raincoat, both can come handy. Walking terrain is easy around 3.7 mi/5.6 km.
