Free Daily Walks Down The Royal Mile (Edinburgh Festival Voluntary Guides Association)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

In the hectic world of the Edinburgh festival, the city itself often becomes only a series of ‘most economical’ routes between shows. The strength of these volunteer-run guided tours is that they allow you to view the Royal Mile at the sort of leisurely pace which the festival would otherwise not permit. While the tour could have benefited from more historical detail, especially considering its two hour duration, it was still a charming way to meander through the city absorbing genial nuggets of Edinburgh’s history. While this tour is not for those with a keen passion for local civic history, it was still a very pleasant way to spend a sunny afternoon.
