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.

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.

If you want to learn the real history of Edinburgh this is the tour for you. You will visit different areas of the city from Old Town to New Town to the coast. Along the way you will learn what life has been like over the last 500 years. No embellishments of facts like larger

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
