The Essential Edinburgh Private Accessible Walking Tour has a 3 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it follows a step-free route and your guide is experienced in navigating the city while touring with disabled clients. It did not receive a higher rating because you will encounter some cobblestones along the way due to the hilly and old nature of the city. Edinburgh was founded on an extinct volcano and consequently, there are numerous steep streets that can be challenging without your guide’s expert help.
Pictured below are examples of the kind of cobblestones you may encounter in Edinburgh. The picture of the left is from the Royal Mile and shows how the streets are covered in cobblestones while the sidewalks are smooth and paved.
This accessible walking tour will take you to Edinburgh Castle. The castle (shown on the image on the left) contains numerous historical buildings and museums. Getting between them requires going up and down steep streets covered in cobblestones. Your private guide, who is experienced in touring with disabled clients, will assist you with navigating the area.
