Overview
Whether you’re short on time or keen to hit the sights in style, exploring Edinburgh by classic Mini Cooper makes your trip all the more memorable. With your guide at the wheel, visit landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle and the Grassmarket. Enjoy free time to explore the sites on foot, with included lunch or dinner, plus hotel pickup and drop-off.
Highlights
  • View UNESCO–listed Edinburgh sites by Mini Cooper with your guide
  • Panoramic views across Edinburgh to the River Forth from Arthur’s Seat
  • Savor a traditional Scottish lunch or dinner at a local restaurant
  • Hassle-free round-trip travel from your centrally located Edinburgh hotel
What to Expect
Choose a morning or afternoon tour, and meet your guide at your central Edinburgh hotel. Then, take a seat in your Mini Cooper and begin your half-day adventure with your guide at the wheel. Head through Edinburgh's medieval Old Town to the rugged peak of Arthur's Seat—one of Edinburgh’s most popular vantage points (not visited on Sunday as it's closed to cars that day) with sweeping views to the River Forth. Pass by famous landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile as your guide sheds light on Edinburgh’s colorful past, and perhaps hop out to explore the historic Grassmarket. Next, ride along the banks of the Water of Leith to Dean Village, and visit the coastal neighborhood of Leith. Here you stroll along the scenic waterfront, and see a side of Edinburgh many visitors miss. Finish with a traditional lunch or dinner at a local restaurant, and return to the city center or your hotel to end your tour.

We were picked up from our Hotel in Leith by Andy on time. The tour was tailored to suite our interests and included the spectacular views from Arthur's Seat and the Old Observatory. Andy took us to places we would never have seen on our own including a quiet tearoom and gardens

Adam did an absolutely perfect job showing us the ins and outs of Edinburgh. He showed up exactly on time and seemed eager to show us a great time. The Minis are perfect for the narrow streets and heavy traffic, especially during the peak season. We really appreciated seeing
