Edinburgh's Old Town is crammed with famous spots and most tours simply gloss over them for long enough to capture a snap on your smartphone. But not this one. Led by a local architect, who reveals iconic landmarks and even more hidden corners to bring to life how the city took shape, this insightful walking tour includes St. Giles' Cathedral, Victoria Terrace, Signet Library and the most picturesque alleyways and closes. Even the lunch stop - surrounded by the Corinthian column of the Colonnades - is impressive.
