Mitä teet

We will explore Edinburgh's most fundamental monuments, personally selected family-owned independent shops, and the hidden gems that you probably won't find on your own. As we make our way through the city's historic Georgian streets and take in breathtaking views. Let's discover the stories and personalities that define one of the most inspiring capitals in the world.

You'll meet the iconic family-run shopping scene. Including a sneak peek at a workshop run by a fashionista legend and a few other local favourites. Book lovers and gastro fanatics are in favour. It's recommended to plan with a few souvenirs ;)

I will introduce you to my independently curated guide map. The booklet includes 350 recommendations around town and will serve as your little helper for the rest of your stay.

Don't forget your camera as we will explore some of the city's most grandiose areas with jaw-dropping skylines and architecture. Our path will take us through New Town, Old Town, the Royal Mile, and Calton Hill. The experience concludes on the historic Grassmarket.

Feel free to ask for recommendations. Everybody is welcome.

Hello, and welcome to my favourite city in the world!

I have established - Alternative Edinburgh - a name derived from my multi-stop approach to city exploration. I am glad to say that running boutique experiences is my full-time commitment and passion.

The goal is to cover it all when it comes to the hidden gems, history & stories, food, music, art, and of course, shopping for unique finds. My experiences will give you real insider access to Edinburgh's vibrant local lifestyle, culture & rich history, carefully crafted, fun, and social away from the busy tourist hot spots.

Looking forward
David

Missä tulette olemaan

Our playground will be the UNESCO World Heritage New Town and Old Town. Along the way, we will encounter many hidden local sites with excellent views. The locations probably better kept in secret. The experience finishes in Old Town, by the iconic Grassmarket area.

Walking terrain is medium and it's around 2.6 mi/4 km with plenty to see, so please plan with a flexible finish time.

David was an amazing guide. He personalised the tour for us to be sure to include sites that we had not seen before. He was extremely knowledgeable. We discovered cute shops and some hidden gems. Also, we were travelling with a dog and he made sure that all the activities were dog-friendly. He really went above and beyond and I can't recommend him enough!

Great Tour of New and Old Town Interesting tour of both Old and New Town in Edinburgh. David took us to several interesting shops that we'd never find on our own. We climbed to the top of Calton Hill for a great perspective of the city.

This was a fabulous experience for us! As advertised, we walked and learned and experienced some of Edinburgh gems--famous ones and out-of-the way ones. I am here visiting family, and we all enjoyed the whole experience. I strongly recommend this tour/experience. It was a highlight of my trip, and my family learned of some great shops that they will frequent in the future. Thank you, David!
