While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide 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.

My first tour with Martin, and my first trip to Edinburgh in the spring. Princes Street Gardens and the Ross Fountain looked absolutely stunning in the sunshine, and I really wished I could join the people sunning themselves on the grass. Martin is extremely knowledgable, has a wonderful speaking voice, and the pace of the tour was perfect, both for taking pictures and absorbing information. Thank you, Martin

Wonderful! Martin is personable, clearly knowledgable and passionate about the city and mindful about pausing for good postcards. This was my first tour but won’t be my last!
