Across from the national registry and at Waverly train station it is easy to get to and they have a good variety of services. They have a money exchange service, sell water, gifts, and souvenirs. They sell tour tickets and if you need the bus system explained they will do that. They also sell stamps and have maps. They are also next to a shopping mall and the Scott Memorial.

Edinburgh Tours and History

Edinburgh Walking Tours, Chambers Street, Edinburgh EH1 1JF, UK – 07950 003885

Fraser gave us THE best tour of our lives! He was very gracious and took us incredibly last minute, we literally walked up to him after heโ€™d finished his last tour of the day to see if he could take us and he did! He asked us what we wanted to see and tailored the tour to our group. Before we moved on to the next thing he would explain what we were about to do and ask if that was okay with us, making sure we got to see and learn about exactly what it was we wanted. Fraser was funny, incredibly knowledgeable, a great story teller, and very patient in answering questions. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Fraser!

Fraser was the best tour guide ever! Not only was he knowledgeable, but he was engaging for a group with a wide range of ages, making sure that there was something to interest everyone. He was very accommodating to our group, and really wanted us to learn as much as possible. After the tour was over he even walked us to a recommended restaurant for dinner. He really went above and beyond all expectations and I would highly recommend booking a tour with him on your next trip to Edinburgh!

Edinburgh Bus Tours

31 Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1BQ, UK – 0131 220 0770

Had a wonderful tour on the green bus with knowledge & funny guides. The service while we waited to board was excellent. Edinburgh was insanely busy but we still had a great time thank you.

The Edinburgh Bus Tour is a fantastic way to view through all of Edinburgh's natural beauty! The view from outside the bus is spectacular, combined with the sunny weather and breezing air. The tour guides I have encountered were also friendly and they told a lot of history of these landmarks, not to mention the landmarks I visited are also spectacular and out of this world!

Timberbush Tours

555 Castlehill, Edinburgh EH1 2ND, UK – 0131 226 6066

I took a two day tour, starting on 14 May, with this company. The guide, unfortunately I can not remember his name, raised the business of touring to the status of art. He made art touring while showing us Scotland. He not only provided a safe driving but enriched our education and information about Scotland in an entertained Scottish humor and authentic Scottish accent. I recommend this touring company to all visitors to this beautiful region.

Wonderful tour in the Scottish Highlands. Our guide and driver Alan managed to drive the narrow road and throughout the 12 hour ride, share an amazing variety of information of Scottish history, the gaelic names, heights of mountains and depths of Lochs and much more. Very, very interesting and educating - we highly recommend this tour to both young and old.

Highland Explorer Tours

60 High St, Edinburgh EH1 1TB, UK – 0131 558 3738

I booked a 3 day tour of Skye and highlands for myself and my parents. The Highland Explorer Tours did a great job in putting together a great itinerary of places to see. Accommodation at B&B locations was also good. I highly recommend this company. Thank you Lee for being an awesome driver and guide.

A friend and I did the 3 day Highland Trip about a month ago. Duncan was our guide and he was fabulous. He kept us on schedule, yet we never felt rushed. He provided explanations before we would get to the sights and had wonderful stories to tell about the history and folk lore. He also allowed times for rest. Duncan clearly enjoyed his work and it showed. Wish he could have accompanied us as we continued our vacation elsewhere--we missed his explanations and stories.

Local Parks & Gardens

Princes Street Gardens

Princes St, Edinburgh EH2 2HG, UK

Great place. Lush green outfield and very well maintained park. Enough benches available to relax and enjoy the nature. There are some eating stalls also inside though I did not try one. If you are at the right spot then can see Edinburgh castle up on the hill. Restrooms are far and few and be ready to walk to use one. One can also see the rail line which is running in parallel to the park.

One of my favourite places to whittle away a day in the sunshine. Beautifully tended gardens with natural looking trees dotted throughout make it a fantastic contrast to the city behind. The fountain, bandstand, the Scots monument and proximity to the art gallery make it a prime place to base yourself for a picnic, day out with the kids or a quick read of a newspaper.

Princes Street Gardens East

Edinburgh EH2 2EJ, UK – 0131 529 7921

Georgian House

7 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh EH2 4DR, UK – 0131 225 2160

An interesting look into the life and home of a gentleman and his family from the 1700's. Great detail put into the furnishings of the home. I loved that you can get close to everything, unlike most museums where the rooms are cordoned off.

A stunning Georgian house, beautifully renovated. It was like walking into a time capsule and seeing a snapshot of history. The guides were friendly and informative. A lovely place to visit.
