Edinburgh Food Safari video

Welcome to Edinburgh Food Safari

I love food and I love Edinburgh so come and eat Edinburgh with me; Nell Nelson; food journalist and TV presenter and my team. We want you to feel like a food–loving friend is showing you their own neighbourhood.

Both food safaris last about three hours with at least six strategically arranged food and drink tastings along the way, with loo and water stops included and include lunch.

Bespoke Corporate Tours

Bespoke Corporate Tours

We are always delighted to offer bespoke tours from groups of two to forty seven! Our biggest number so far – see blog.

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. 

Another group asked for music and food and we gave them the red carpet treatment with a piper and drummer and traditional Scottish harp and fiddles to accompany their haggis neeps and tattie experience.

With notice we can tailor the tour to accommodate guests’ dietary requirements from a little know 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 £29 per person
