Questions and answers

Where does the tour go and how long is it?

Part of the fun of Edinburgh Food Tours is that guests do not know where they're going. What goes on tour, stays on tour! We start the Edinburgh Food Tour at The Shore in Leith and finish on Leith Walk with the tour taking around 4 hours to complete.

I know Leith well already, is there any point in me going on the tour?

The idea of the Edinburgh Food Tours is to discover the food and drink of Leith and learn about the people behind the produce. You meet producers along the way and have a fun, unique experience that can only be had on tour with us.

How far is the walk and is it suitable for those with physical disability?

The Edinburgh Food Tour travels around the market for around 45 minutes and there are no seats available. We then travel at a slow speed around Leith and there are seats available at our stops. The longest part of the walk is from the shore to Leith Walk. There is wheelchair access in all of the places we visit.

I have an allergy or dietary requirement, can you cater for me?

We will do our best to cater for your requirements, when booking, you will be asked for any dietary requirements.

Why do you need my telephone number?

We will only contact you if we need to speak to you about your tour in case we need to cancel or change our meeting place for example. Your number will not be shared with anyone else and we will not use it for marketing purposes.

Are children welcome on the tour?

The tour was set up with adults in minds. We visit bars on the tour, and therefore it is up to parents to decide if that's appropriate for their children.

What if it rains?

We tour all year round, come rain, hail and even if there is a glimpse of sunshine! We have fun, whatever the weather. Just wear the right clothes.

Can I bring my dog?

Sadly we can’t bring dogs on the tour as the places we visit doesn’t allow them.

I can't make the tour, what do I do?

Unfortunately we don't offer refunds. However, if you give us a minimum of 48 hours' notice before the tour we will do our best to transfer you onto another tour that suits you and has availability. Just drop us a line at info@edinburghfoodtours.co.uk.

I've given a name and now they can't make it, do I need to contact you to change the name?

So long as we have the lead guest's name, then we can work with that! It doesn't matter who you bring.

Do I need to bring my ticket?

You just need to bring yourself! We have a list, no need to print anything.
