Arrive in Scotland!!! Make your way from Edinburgh Airport to the hotel as you arrive in the capital of Scotland. Check in at your hotel, after which the rest of the day is free for you to meander through the winding cobbled streets of this popular city, as you admire the breath-taking architecture, and soak in its sights and sounds. Embark on a walking tour of Edinburgh to unearth the Secrets of the Royal Mile, a treasure-chest of historic gems. The best way to explore Edinburgh is to follow your feet. Where the buses can't take you, and the guide books don't show you is where our real stories can be found, the closes, wynds, courtyards and homes of Old Edinburgh. We'll paint a vivid picture of our colourful past and people - see the secrets and tell the tales - the culture, crime and politics of Scotland's capital. An experience shared by local professional historians. Fascinating and Revealing.
