Owner description: Eat walk Edinburgh offer two Food walking tours. One explores Edinburgh's Old & New towns and the other the lower half of the Royal Mile called the Cannongate. On each of these tours you will visit unusual/hidden restaurants, bars and shops, taste dishes specially prepared for you. Sample individually selected drinks (beers, wine and whisky), talk to the chefs/owners and discover the history behind the properties. The Old & new town tour (1pm-4.30pm) which has five food stops with two wine tastings and a single cask malt whisky tasting ensuring you will not need to worry about dinner in the evening. The Cannongate tour (10am-1pm) enjoys six stops including a Bloody Mary cocktail and breakfast canapes to get the tour off and running. By the end there will be no need for lunch. The Old & New town tour was recommended in BBC Good Food Magazine as a "Don't miss" thing to do in Edinburgh. Delicious magazine also has it down as a must do.

“Quaint and Unique Edinburgh Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

This tour was a good way to cover a good deal of the city within a few short hours. The pace of the tour was good, with the food arranged at appropriate intervals. Our guide Julie made sure we were always comfortable, and shared with us many interesting stories about the city. Special mention goes to the haggis we had at the private Whiskey Club - that was by far the best haggis we've ever had in Scotland. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the review and I'm glad that Julie looked after you so well.
The tour covers the Old and New towns of Edinburgh and although it's over 2.5 miles it is broken up with food and drink stops every 15 minutes or so.

“A must do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

This was one of the highlights from my trip to Edinburgh. Alan manages to find the perfect mix of history and delicious food. The best stop for me was the Scotch Malt Whiskey Society where I got to try haggis (and loved it, by the way). Try not to eat before you go though - you get more than enough on the tour!

Thank you for your review as you say not only is it a tour visiting parts of the Old and new town. But they're lots of food and drink stops which most people feel there is no need for dinner afterwards.

“Great way to see the City!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We did this tour with our daughter who was studying in Glasgow and we all loved it!! Alan was the best, most knowledgeable guide. Each stop we made was unique and we still talk about how much we loved this tour! We loved the special stop at the private Whiskey club. And all the food was delicious! We would definitely recommend this tour.

“Great Find - Unique - Must Do tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We have been coming to Edinburgh for years, but this time we wanted to do something different. We found Eat Walk Edinburgh and liked the idea of a guided tour whilst eating and drinking. Alan our tour guide was very helpful at the point of booking and very knowledgable throughout the tour itself. We ate 5 courses at 5 different venues, whilst also tasting drinks (wines and whisky). We went 2 a private members club, ate in converted churches whilst exploring parts of Edinburgh we had never seen before. Our group was from all over the world, but that didn't stop us having a good time as a group. You definitely need comfortable walking shoes and a hearty appetite. Thanks Alan for a truly unique experience.

Thanks for your lovely review, one of the quickest we received as you were just on the tour last night, 7th July.
Really enjoyed your company and I thought considering the diverse range of those on the tour bonded very well, especially after our visit to the Malt whisky Society.

“Interesting and nice experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

Good food and drinks, nice guide with deep knowledge about the town. It was fun going to places and restaurant we wouldn't have found on our own. We were alone with the guide. Would recommend this special type of guided tour to anyone that likes good food and an opportunity to learn more about a fantastic town.
