Helen's Historic Old City Tour

Edinburgh Welcome Tours

Select Option


My name is Helen. I love my city and I like to show it from a local viewpoint! My favourite places are unusual ones that are off the beaten track and are often missed by many visitors. I aim to show you these combined with the incredible history, culture and sights we have to offerI keep my group sizes small which gives us plenty of time to talk! Sometimes I can even vary the route according to your interests or pick up a drink along the way..I set up my company “Edinburgh Welcome Tours” because during my travels I have been invited to homes all over the world so now I want to welcome visitors from everywhere to my own home town. My other tours -“Helen’s Highs &Hidden Lows”&”Helen’s Grand Designs & Hidden Gems” are both shorter & cover different areas. Please see our Edinburgh Welcome Tours website or contact us for details.We also run individual tours at a time and place to suit you. Please contact us directly if you are interested so that we can produce the perfect one for you!

We wind along the Royal Mile in the Old Town which is the oldest part of the UNESCO world heritage area of Edinburgh.

We take you down hidden alleyways off the main street and make the historical stories that fill this city come alive.
