Free walking tour
I had heard of the free tours that are sometimes organized in different big cities but I wasn't convinced they were any good. But when I found leaflets from a tour company in our hotel in Edinburgh we decided to try it, especially since we only had two days to explore the city and were running out of money. The walking tour starts every day at 11 am at the Tron Kirk on Royal Mile. It lasts for about 4 hours and you learn a lot about the curious history of the city and about Scotland. Our experience was fantastic, as Edinburgh is a beautiful and interesting city but also because the guide was great.
