On this tour you will need to be an early riser, there is a lot of mileage to cover (324 miles).

Leaving Edinburgh we would be travelling up north towards Glencoe, in this area we would visit places which were used for background shots from Prisioner of Azkaban.

Then we would go to see an amazing loch used as a stand-in for Hogwarts lake featured in Prisioner of Azhaban and The Half-blood Prince.

Remember the Victorian railway viaduct first seen in Chamber of Secrets and also the place where Harry encounters a Dementor for the very first time in Prisoner of Azkaban when the Hogwarts Express stops at the bridge? Your guide will take you there : ).

On this tour you have to be able to walk up some hills and boggy ground. We will do safely but you need to be reasonably fit for that : ).

The walks would not be longer than 15 minutes each but 2 of them are steep and boggy. Walking shoes (preferably waterproof) and raincoat advised. Scotland rains a lot!

This tour covers a lot of the highlands if you are quick on your feet and you are not running out of time, your guide might show other attractions which are on the route that you are travelling.

It’s fun to be with someone so passionate about Edinburgh!
I have been to Edinburgh before, and this is the best tour yet! Raphael took me to places I had not seen before and taught me new things about Scottish history. I especially liked his stories about local authors. He also was so sweet with sending us a list afterwards for extra places to visit, eat and drink. He’s not your typical tour guide in that he makes the city come alive. Thank you for the fun day!
Rafael made the tour interesting, fun and accommodated to what we wanted as a family!
Rafael was absolutely great! I live in Edinburgh and my family came to visit and I was very pleased on everything he told us, even I learned a lot! Not only the tour was informative and interesting but he made it fun and tailored it to what we wanted as a family, he is very friendly and joyful.
Fun and informative walking tour of Edinburgh
I had a great time exploring Edinburgh with my private guide Rafael. Rafael was great in replying to my messages about meeting point and itinerary before the tour, and we had no troubles meeting on the day.
We walked around Edinburgh for over 3 hours, exploring the old town and all the important sights. Rafael was very personable and fun to chat to, and was able to tailor the experience to what I wanted to see. He was able to mix both historical information with entertaining stories, so it was never boring and gave me a good overview of the city.
Overall I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Edinburgh.
