The Old & new Town tour (1pm-4.30pm) which has five food stops with a Edinburgh Raspberry Gin, Scottish beer and a single cask malt whisky tasting ensuring you will not need to worry about dinner in the evening. The Canongate tour (10am-1pm) enjoys six stops including a Bloody Mary cocktail and breakfast canapes to get the tour off and running. By the end there will be no need for lunch. The Old & New town tour was recommended in BBC Good Food Magazine as a "Don't miss" thing to do in Edinburgh. Delicious magazine also has it down as a must do.

Thanks for the lovely review it is greatly appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the food & drink tastings and our whisky stop. The tour does cover about 2.5 miles over the 3-3.5 hours but is broken up with seated stops every 15-20 minutes.
