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 taking in breathtaking views, we will 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 to 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

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.

Really enjoyed the tour with David, especially climbing to the top of Calton Hill which I wouldn’t have done otherwise! This tour is a great way to see different parts 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!

This tour was the best thing that we did during our trip to Edinburgh. David is really fun and friendly and took note of our interests to personalise the tour. We learnt lots about the history of Edinburgh and found amazing spots and small businesses that we wouldn’t have otherwise visited. We also took many of David’s recommendations for the rest of our time in Edinburgh. You won’t be disappointed if you do this tour!

A wonderful introduction to Edinburg a bit off the usual tourist path. David is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his city. He chooses a route that helps you get to know the New Town better with discussion about outlying places such as Leith and Portobello. The independent shops we stopped to see were fantastic, particularly Joey D’s and the Italian market Valvona and Crolla. I would not have known to look for these places on my own. Interesting and entertaining! A truly well-conceived experience in Edinburg.
