What is CityExplorers?

CityExplorers was born to redefine the tourism industry into a new model closer to travellers expectations at a time when the Old City of Edinburgh was full of tourist traps. Things have changed since then, with more tours, a bigger team, thousands of visitors every year, but the idea is still the same: ensure that everyone no matters what one's budget has the best experience when visiting a new city.

The FREE Tour concept is a tips-based model that ensure the highest quality of the tours we offer. We connect lots of travellers every day with local freelance tour guides at no upfront cost. They pay what they wish, so they get to determine what a tour was worth, if anything, after the tour, thus ensuring that their tour guide must strive to give his or her best on every tour. It has opened a new era in the industry so the low-quality city tours cannot survive anymore.

Our famous FREE Ghost Tour is today the most popular Ghost Tour in Edinburgh, giving to thousands of travelers every year the possibility to enjoy a high-quality Ghost Tour fitting it into their budget and changing forever the big Ghost Tour industry in Edinburgh. The FREE Ghost Tour is today a must for every visitor that comes to Edinburgh at any time of the year.

Where to find us

The FREE Tour & the FREE GHOST Tour start from The Royal Mile, just in front of Coffee House (144 High Street). The Pub Crawl starts at The Tron Bar, 9 Hunter Square.
