Edinburgh Food & Drink tour

The Edinburgh food and drink tour explores both the medieval Old Town of Scotland’s capital and its elegant Georgian New Town.

There are five food stops en route, three of them with a drink tasting. All of the stops have been carefully chosen not only to highlight Scotland’s iconic food and drink but also because the venues are much loved by local residents. This food tour takes you off the tourist trail.

As well as delving deep into Scotland’s natural larder, the Old & New Town food tour illustrates Edinburgh’s past and present; its history and the day-to-day reality of 21st century living in such a historical city.

Guests will be given audio headsets to listen live to the guide as you walk at your own pace or stop to take photos. Tour size is limited to 8 people so you all get a chance to get to know each other on the tour.
