"Follow in the famous footsteps of Mary Queen of Scots and Robert Burns on this insightful stroll along Edinburgh’s most famous street. Stretching for… well, a mile… from Holyrood Palace to the castle, a fortress that has been fought over for centuries, this tour ventures deep into the Royal Mile’s hidden corners: the secret gardens, closes and courtyards. You’ll also get to skip the line and enter Edinburgh Castle. In short, the perfect introduction to Edinburgh."
