City Goat

Get to know Edinburgh on this exciting walking tour!

There is much to see in the Old and New Town of Edinburgh on your private tour. While you walk under the shadows of Edinburgh Castle you will feel as you have travelled back in time. The architecture of the city reinforces the tales and stories you will be hearing from your guide. When your guide starts talking about the illustrious and infamous people who lived here and how they left their indelible mark in history you will be impressed. But since we know that some people do not enjoy crying over the past and some hate to stress about the future, we can and we will talk also about day-to-day life in Edinburgh.

With this in mind fire away any questions, you may have regarding living in Scotland and about the Scots. Anything, really! As long you let us know what your interests are and what you are into, you will have a great time. So if you are a film buff, a book lover or a binge drinker this tour is right for you. If you are not this tour can still be right for you because it’s private and it is yours. You make of it what you will.

It’s not you who tour with MAD GOAT it is MAD GOAT who tours with you.
