Highlights of Edinburgh Private Accessible Driving Tour

This half-day Edinburgh accessible driving tour is a great way to experience the highlights of the city without having to walk/stroll longer distances between the attractions. While it is an accessible driving tour, there will still be plenty of opportunities for you to get out of your accessible van and experience the Scottish capital firsthand, including Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Mile. You won’t just be snapping pictures and admiring sights from your van!

Your accessible Edinburgh driving tour will begin when your guide and driver pick you up at your accessible Edinburgh hotel. From there, your exciting Edinburgh adventure awaits! On this 4 hour tour, you will enjoy beautiful sightseeing as you make your way through the city venter, with your professional guide sharing and explaining the significance and history of each site.

Your first stop on this accessible Highlights of Edinburgh tour will be at the Royal Mile, a succession of streets running through the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. This famous area is peppered with attractions and historical sites and has some of the best dining and shopping spots in the city. Here you will have time to get out of the van and explore the vibrant area. While much of the Old Town has hills and is covered in Cobblestones, your private to tour guide has extensive experience touring with disabled clients and will safely lead you through the area.

Finally, your private accessible Edinburgh driving tour would not be complete without a visit to the magnificent Edinburgh Castle. Escorted by your guide, you will explore the impressive Castle which also houses the Scottish National War Memorial museum and has great views of the surrounding city. Its story has helped shape the nation’s story: battles and sieges were fought over it, royalty lived and died within its walls, and countless generations have been inspired by it! Most of the site is accessible, and you can easily spend a few hours here.

If you’re interested in this tour but would like to combine it with visits to areas outside of Edinburgh including the beautiful highlands, we also offer a full-day accessible Edinburgh and Beyond driving tour.
