There's no tour like it in Edinburgh! A walking tour specifically around the history of the coffee trade in Scotland, visiting the sites of the original historic coffee houses in Edinburgh - and exclusive access to what was once "John's Coffee House" where we finish the tour with a coffee in an 18th Century meeting point for philosophers, pirates, and prosecutors alike. Come see an underground section of Edinburgh that hasn't been open to the public for almost 200 years!

During the experience, we'll visit the sites where the ancient coffee houses of Edinburgh used to be before the great fire changed the landscape of the Old Town forever, whilst we tell you some stories of the history of coffee, and how the coffee trade grew to what it is today.
