Eat walk Edinburgh offer two Food walking tours. One explores Edinburgh's Old & New towns and the other the lower half of the Royal Mile called the Cannongate. On each of these tours you will visit unusual/hidden restaurants, bars and shops, taste dishes specially prepared for you. Sample individually selected drinks (beers, wine and whisky), talk to the chefs/owners and discover the history behind the properties. The Old & new town tour (1pm-4.30pm) which has five food stops with two wine tastings and a single cask malt whisky tasting ensuring you will not need to worry about dinner in the evening. The Cannongate tour (10am-1pm) enjoys six stops including a Bloody Mary cocktail and breakfast canapes to get the tour off and running. By the end there will be no need for lunch. The Old & New town tour was recommended in BBC Good Food Magazine as a "Don't miss" thing to do in Edinburgh. Delicious magazine also has it down as a must do.

Just LOVED this tour. Interesting facts of historical Ediburgh, beautiful buildings and passage ways all interspersed with the most marvellous food, wines and whiskeys! Allan was so enthusiastic about his subject and that was infectious. Was with my son on this tour and though theres a 28 yr age gap; it suited us both. Highly recommended!!

A really enjoyable afternoon touring Edinburgh. Our guide, Alan, was knowledgeable, friendly and enthusiastic, and the restaurants and bars visited were all excellent. Would totally recommend Eat Walk Edinburgh to anyone looking to see a bit of the city and enjoy some fantastic local food and drink!

Julie proved to be an excellent guide as the information that you would expect from any tour of a city you had not been to before was combined with visiting a number of interesting venues to sample one course of a meal at each place. As a not particularly adventurous eater it was a revelation to be "forced" to eat... More

We met our guide in Hotel du Vin, he guided us to some nice restaurants with tasty food. But his guidance could be improved, he ttalked not so much about the food, but talked in some restaurants more with the owner than with us.

The tour started in a cosy warm snug and leads you through parts of Edinburgh as you stop along the way to sample traditional Scottish dishes. Don't believe the stories -haggis and black pudding are delicious. The tour is informative and the food is yummy. Enjoy!

A knowledgeable guide, Iian, took us on a leisurely stroll around the Edinburgh streets. The stories are fun, they give a picture of the Scottish capital through the eyes of a Scot. Food stops are great, we went back to one the next day for lunch. Haggis in the Scotch Malt Whisky Society was a highlight.

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighbourhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
