On your tour, your guide will help you orient yourself in the Old Town, showing you the best spots for iconic pictures, pointing out the highlights, and giving you the best tips and tricks for visiting the highlights. Your guide will also give you the historical context of the ancient city, including taking you past St Giles Cathedral, which has been at the heart of Christianity in Scotland for more than nine centuries.
