Eat Walk Edinburgh
This "foodies' walking tour" takes you through the Old and New Towns on foot, with stops for food and drink at up to seven locations along the way. Haggis, neeps and tatties, wine, and malt whisky are among the treats you'll encounter during the approximately 3-hour tour.

Edinburgh Book Lovers' Tour
Travel writer Allan Foster, author of The Literary Traveler in Edinburgh, leads a two-hour tour with refreshment stops from The Writers' Museum in Lady Stair's Close, just off the Royal Mile behind Deacon Brodies Pub. Mr. Foster also offers a Robert Louis Stevenson dinner with literary readings in the privately owned Georgian row house where the author of Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde once lived.

This company runs a Murder & Mystery Tour year-round and a Ghosts & Gore Tour from May through August. (You can prebook the Murder and Mystery Walking Tour in U.S. dollars through our tour partner, Viator.) Departures are from outside the Witchery Restaurant near Edinburgh Castle on the Royal Mile.

Auld Reekie Tours
Choose from a Tour of Witchcraft, a Terror Tour, a Ghost and Torture Tour, and an Underground Tour. Departures are from the Tron Kirk at the junction of North Bridge, South Bridge, and the Royal Mile.
