About the tour

Once an independent village outside Edinburgh, it’s now one of Edinburgh’s hidden gems. Walk through time as you explore a one time thriving mill town. Sitting on banks of the Water of Leith the village is a time capsule of Scottish domestic and industrial history.

Meet Sam


Sam started guiding in January 2000 and has not stopped. She loves to talk and show people her wonderful home town of Edinburgh and her beautiful country, Scotland. Her own company Edinburgh Tour Guides is a family affair. She loves history, architecture, and all things Scottish, she's an Outlander fan and loves old ghost stories. She's has a sense of humour and likes to keep people entertained during the tour.

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Edinburgh with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Edinburgh. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
