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.
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.

Fabulous tour, even with crutches!

My husband and I stumbled across this tour while looking for a reduced-walking option for seeing the city (he has a broken leg). Luckily we found this company. We thought a mini may be a bit tight since hubby is over 6’ tall and has...More

Sorry for the late reply! We were actually 4 adults as well. It’s a little tight, but not bad. They took two cars. So we split up, two in one car and two in the other. Honestly, You won’t regret it. Andy and Rowan were both... More
