Det skal I lave

This tour includes a little of The Royal Mile and a lot of The Castle. Set aside time after your tour to explore. The price advertised does not include the entrance price to the castle, this is because some people book their own tickets in advance. You can purchase castle tickets directly from us at the start of the tour at a discounted rate for your convenience.

We meet on the Royal Mile and start by giving a little background history to Edinburgh and the Castle to help put everything into context. Moving up to the castle esplanade where you will learn about the Edinburgh Military Tattoo and two of the most famous figures from Scottish history; Robert the Bruce and William Wallace.

Entering the Castle we stop by the Argyle Battery where you will learn about the 1 o'clock gun. Moving on we head down to the Hospital Square where we get impressive views from the Western Panorama before heading up towards the castle barracks and prisoner of war camp, all these areas have enthralling stories that only a guide can bring to life.

We then climb to the top of Castle Rock entering the medieval section of Edinburgh Castle. Here we see the oldest building in Edinburgh, St Margaret’s Chapel and Mons Meg, a monstrous canon!

The tour finishes in the Crown Square which is the heart of Edinburgh Castle and I will tell you all about the daring attacks against this iconic fortification.

Luca founded Little Fish Tours back in 2016 and we have been guiding groups from all around the world through Scotland's most iconic castle ever since. In this time we have developed a fantastic working relationship with Edinburgh Castle.

Scotland has a deep and rich story telling culture and by combining our shared passion for story telling and by drawing on many years of guiding experience I believe we can help bring the three thousand years worth of castle history to life for you and help enrich your time spent at Edinburgh Castle.

It's worth noting that guiding is not permitted within the museums at the castle. When the tour ends we very much recommend you give yourself at least an extra hour to explore the various museums at your own leisure.

Her skal du være

Edinburgh Castle is the most important fortification in Scotland. It has been the site of many battle and besieges, the home of Kings and Queens and now it is the backdrop to our tour. You could walk around the castle by yourself and dip in and out of the museums but with over three thousand years worth of history centring round this historic fortress we have worked really hard to bring the complex history to life through story telling.

Had a great time on the tour. Greg was fantastic and really brought the history of the castle alive with his animated tales. Would happily listen again, even in the cold!

Just book this if your visiting the castle !! “Skip the line “ is the least of it . The stories and explanations and information giving on this outside the castle, on the grounds was fantastic!!! It’s a total for the price . He was funny and informative and I throughly enjoyed it !!

This tour was wonderful! John was my group’s tour guide and he was fantastic. He gave tons of information interwoven with diverse storytelling. This was much better than listening to an audio guide. Very personal and engaging. I would highly recommend this as a great way to see and learn about the history of Edinburgh castle

John was a great guide of The Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. He was very knowledgeable of the area and Scottish history, and was quite funny as well. Navigating the Castle would have been overwhelming without a guide. He also left plenty of time to continue to explore the castle after the tour.

I took the castle tour with my daughter. We didn’t have a lot of time in town so we wanted to take the tour in order to get the quickest overview of the castle and city. Our guide was Alasdair and he was incredibly knowledgeable about the castle, Scottish history, architecture, and many relevant and related things. He did a great job giving us an overall background of everything and was willing and able to answer any questions we had. We weren’t aware (due to our own lack of thoroughness) that the tour was only outside the castle’s exhibits (ie in the castle walls, but outside the buildings), so we still spent quite a bit of time after the tour walking through the exhibits on our own and didn’t get to them all before we got tired and things closed. He was great and we really enjoyed it, but I would research how it compares to the guided (headphone) tour you can purchase on site.
