Description

Come on an Edinburgh Food Safari, where we do the hunting and you do the eating. Explore the coolest, most vibrant and the longest street in Edinburgh on this guided two and a quarter hour international food walking tour. There are six delicious stops: Swedish meatballs, Kenyan mezze, Turkish borek, Greek orange cake, a Portuguese egg tart and of course something Scottish on Leith Walk; originally built as a rampart to deter Cromwell, now a dynamic link from the city of Edinburgh to the port of Leith.

This is a really wonderful event, well worth doing. It combines a range of tastings of food with a walking tour with some fun information on history and architecture. The day we chose turned out to be a beautiful sunny day, so we were able to sit outdoors and enjoy delicious food from around the world with an interesting group of people.

A wonderful easy walk downhill trying some scrumptious delicacies from local Leith small businesses. Water and toilets at each stop and a splash of Leith history thrown in to boot.
Very enjoyable afternoon, just don’t eat a huge breakfast beforehand as you will end up too full!
