About Edinburgh Sightseeing Photography Tour

Discover the Most Instagrammable Places in Edinburgh!

Explore Edinburgh with your local guide as you find the most instagrammable places in Edinburgh. Often referred to as the “Athens of the North”, Edinburgh Castle on the hill cuts a striking silhouette against the background of one of Britain’s oldest and most visited cities. Cut through the crowds and the tourist traps to see the real Edinburgh, taking stunning photos of both the big attractions and hidden gems. 

Edinburgh is a city flush with history and culture. Its ancient buildings and bustling streets are worth seeing in their own right, but it’s often the street performers and the Fringe Festival that pull even more visitors each year. Your local Insta Tours guide will take you down both the popular streets and the roads less travelled, helping you find the top Edinburgh Instagram spots. Book today, and please get in touch if you have any questions. And if you’re travelling to other parts of Britain and Ireland in the near future, you might also like to check out our Dublin and Liverpool Sightseeing Photography Tours.

A Unique Hen Party Activity in Edinburgh!

Edinburgh is one of the most popular cities in the UK for stag and hen dos, and it’s easy to see why when you consider its thriving nightlife and rich array of fun activities. However, while there is an almost unending list of possible hen do activities in Edinburgh, the number of choices can be a little overwhelming. While some hen party cliches are a right of passage, we think Insta Tours offers a novel change of pace from the usual hen do ideas. Explore Edinburgh with your fellow hens, taking in the city while snapping some of the best, most envy-inducing Instagram snaps!
