Bespoke Corporate Tours

Bespoke Corporate Tours

We are always delighted to offer bespoke tours from groups of two to seventy! Back in the good old days – soon to return at some point I hope, so perhaps think about 2021 for a group tour? 

We can adapt the tour or added stops if requested. A group of 30 hens embraced the safari theme and wore safari hats – a surreal scene to see thirty safari hats bobbing past Georgian pillars. 

Last summer, we had 70 lawyers divided into four groups with four guides  – a great way to bond and strike a deal.

With notice we can tailor the tour to accommodate guests’ dietary requirements from a little known malt whisky to vegan alternatives which are still uniquely Scottish and delicious 

Email Nell nell.nelson@btinternet.com to discuss how we can create a food and drink walking tour to give you and your group a unique and memorable insight to Edinburgh. Prices start from £21 per person
