Detailed description of the Panoramic Tour of Edinburgh
The most important thing about Edinburgh is not only in the Old Town. With our Panoramic Tour you will also get to know the New Town and how its construction hid political and social purposes during the Scottish Enlightenment.
Then, in the Dean Village, you will forget that you are next to the commercial and busy Princess Street. Centennial trees in the center of Edinburgh and old windmills along the banks of the Leith stream will accompany us on one of the favorite walks of the Edinburghs. Continuing with the green spaces of the city, we will cross the Inverleith Park and the Botanical Garden to reach the port of Leith and to see the Yacht Britania, the Royal yacht.
After a stop at the port of Leith, in the Firth of the Forth, we will be waiting for one of the busiest areas of the city: Leith Walk. Next, and after greeting Sherlock Holmes, we will see Calton Hill and Arthur’s Seat.
Our next stop will be the Holyrood complex, one of the key points of the Old Town. Here you can enjoy the Palace of Holyrood (official residence of the British monarchy in Scottish lands) and the new Parliament building with its eclectic design by Enric Mirallés and the park of Holyrood. The itinerary will come to an end in the center of the old area, after having crossed Cannongate, the east stretch of the Royal Mile.
During this tour you will pass through the streets and neighborhoods of Edinburgh that were frequented by such illustrious city figures as Adam Smith, Dave Hume, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, James Bond, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Peter Higgs, Robert Burns , María Estuardo, Queen Victoria, Isabel II and, of course, YOU.
On the other hand, to discover certain corners hidden in the Royal Mile, we recommend the Guided Walking Tour of Edinburgh.
