The tours run every day and in all weather conditions.
Look for the yellow umbrellas at our meeting point on The Royal Mile. Our staff will be there wearing a yellow jacket with the City Explorers logo.
Different guides like different routes, and so there is no single finishing point for the FREE tours. However, with all our tours you will find it is only a short walk back to the start point from the end. The guide will be more than happy to give you directions back to the Royal Mile, or wherever else in Edinburgh you need to go.
The Pub Crawl ends in one of the best nightclubs in Edinburgh’s Old Town. We go to different clubs on different nights to give you the best possible experience of Edinburgh’s nightlife. While the crawl ends around 0.30am, you can stay in the club until closing time, usually at 3am.
While the actual length depends on each tour, the tour guide and the desires of the group, these are the approximate times:
These tours are free as there isn't an upfront cost, but the tour guides work exclusively on tips, so donations at the end are appreciated.
No worries, you don't need to bring cash with you, as all the guides have their own card readers.
All our tours run separately in both English and Spanish, led by a tour guide who is a native speaker in the language.

Groups of up to 14 people are welcome to any of the FREE tours. Groups of more than 14 people should book a private tour. You can find more information here.
Bookings made by a group of more than 14 people, even when they are processed separately, will not be accepted at the tour start point.
Groups of any size are welcome to the regular pub crawl. However, private pub crawls are available. More information here.
Just showing up at the start point is fine in most cases. However, we would recommend booking online as, on days of high demand, if tours reach their capacity guests with a booking will have priority.
You just need to come to the start point at the scheduled time.
We recommend coming 10 minutes before the scheduled tour departure time, as it gives us time to get organized.
Also,on busy days, if the tours reach capacity, the spaces are filled on a first-come first-served basis.
