See Edinburgh through the eyes of our expert storytellers at Mercat Tours. Founded by a history teacher with the idea that “History is a damn good story. What it needs is a damn good telling.”
Mercat Tours are the original, largest and only 5-star walking tour company in Scotland. For over 34 years, our award-winning history and ghost tours share the tales of Edinburgh’s past. For us – it’s all about telling the fascinating stories of Edinburgh’s people with passion, humour and flair.
Mercat Tours guides are chosen for their enthusiasm and skill. Each one brings their own energy to the story, whether they’re telling you about Adam Smith, the father of economics – or the city’s rioters, rebels, torturers and murderers.
The stories are all true – and you won’t find any artificial ‘jump scares’ or tricks on Mercat Tours!
