    Tour Description:

    Edinburgh New Town Private Walking Tour
    Explore Edinburgh's New Town - the Enlightenment built in stone. On this private tour you'll discover the finer points of 18th century life: from the Royal Society of Edinburgh to the elegant Assembly Rooms.

    This private tour of George Street gives you the chance to explore the history of Edinburgh's New Town - home to literature and science, pretty garden squares and ballrooms ablaze with glittering chandeliers.

    Explore the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the home of intense discussions between scientists, writers and architects. See inside the Assembly Rooms, opened for the Caledonian Hunt Ball in Edinburgh New Town Private Walking Tour 1787 and impressing audiences ever since. Discover the thought behind this exceptional example of city planning - from the first designs to the neo-classical grandeur that gives Edinburgh's New Town its unique atmosphere.

    See behind locked doors and neo-classical porticos

    Your private guide will unlock the stories of who built what - and why - as you walk along George Street. You'll have rare access to some of the most famous buildings - including the Royal Society of Edinburgh, where generations of scientists, inventors and philosophers have tested their ideas.

    "I had a fantastic time through Scotland Tours, I would recommend the company to others. Everything was great, the highlight had to be the boat ride on loch Ness. The guide & service was well organised"
