Seen the Old Town (with us, our another lovely set of guides!) but want more? This tour is perfect for anyone wanting to get away from the big crowds of the Royal Mile. Over the 2 hours, you'll see some of the oldest buildings in Edinburgh, the city's centre's only waterfall, Edinburgh's only river and maybe the local otters and other birdlife. You'll meet Gains, Chris or David outside the Caledonian Hotel (Waldorf Astoria) entrance, and from there it's a short walk down to Dean Village. From Dean Village, you'll walk down the Water of Leith, and see Dean Bridge, a magnificent feat of early 19th century engineering as well as an 18th century spa. After that, you'll see the artistic community of Stockbridge and parts of Edinburgh's Historic New Town (1769). To conclude we'll walk through Princes Street Gardens, a magnificent scenic area with tremendous views of Edinburgh Castle, hear the varied past of this park and the story of a very brave bear who served in World War Two! Get away from the over-crowded Old Town and see the parts of the city you won't find by yourself!
Chris And Gains
Hi, I'm Chris! I'm a local guide in Edinburgh. I've been guiding for 7 years now and I still love nothing more than meeting nice people and showing them my city. Together with my colleague, Gains, we are looking forward to showing you around one of Edinburgh's best kept secrets. Gains has a PhD in Scottish History and Chris actually lives in Dean Village. We have made a tour that combines the best of local history and anecdotes, giving you a great insight into what life in one of Edinburgh's hidden gems is really like. We run the tour at this time partly because it's quiet but also because sometimes you see local wildlife that you wouldn't during the day. This tour is perfect for anyone wanting to escape other tourist
You'll walk through the historic Dean Village, down the Water of Leith, and then back up to the city centre via Edinburgh's New Town (1770......not so new!)
