This Edinburgh historical tour begins at a designated meeting point in Edinburgh’s Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Following a route filled with medieval cobbled streets and alleys, learn about dramatic historical events and tick off Royal Mile monuments such as St. Giles Cathedral, the Mercat Cross, and Canongate Kirk.
