Indian cuisine is in the very heart of Scottish & British culture from over 300 years since the British colonial past in India, commonly known as the British Raj. You will learn how old Edinburgh was, how people lived, what was real life during the medieval times and many many more things, facts & histories about Auld Reekie (Old Smokey the old name of Edinburgh) Hi, I'm Rishi your host and your guide and I conduct walking tours. I have over 20 years of experience in hospitality & tourism, I got my degree in Tourism (BA Hons) in Edinburgh to match my love of travel. I'm from India and I live in the alluring city of Edinburgh. When I first came here many years back I fell in love with this city. Being myself an explorer, history & a nature lover, I found endless opportunities here. The experience I provide will become the memories of a life time for you.

    Come and discover one of the oldest city in the world and enjoy the multicultural flavors right in the heart of this ancient city! Indian cuisine is in the very heart of Scottish & British culture from over 300 years since the British colonial past in India, commonly known as the British Raj. Old Town Royal Mile is a MUST DO tour as this was the original Edinburgh during the ancient times and it is part of UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will learn how old Edinburgh was, how people lived, what was real life during the medieval times and many many more things, facts & histories about Auld Reekie (Old Smokey the ancient name of Edinburgh). We will pass through both the well-known historic places, including Harry Potter's birth place (!) and the unknown & hidden spots. I will take you under and over different levels of streets connected with narrow alley ways. We are going to explore Edinburgh from her very heart to the outer most beauty. After the tour is completed, we will have our dinner at an award-winning Indian restaurant, where you will have a real authentic 2 course dinner according to your choice and taste (vegan/veg/non-veg options). The table will be booked for you, so you can relax, enjoy and take your time while you are dining. (PLEASE NOTE: If your preferred date & time is not available in my calendar, please contact me for arrangement.)

Rishi is a very nice and polite guy, who knows al lot about Edinburgh. He has so much to say, that our tour last longer than planned ;-). Rishi was very good to understand. We are from Germany and we had no problems at all (in contrast to other tour guides we had). The Indian

I was always interested in history and architecture, and I love Indian food; this tour combined these two stuff so I was really exciting to try this tour. I was amazed by Rishi's knowledge and his passion for history, architecture, guiding and sharing his really huge knowledge.
