What are the benefits?

There are so many benefits to this form of shopping. It introduces you to places that are off the beaten track in Edinburgh and gives you a cultural experience like no other. Most the proceeds of your vintage shop purchases go towards charity – and there is such a wide range of charitable endeavours who run charity shops in Edinburgh. Charity shopping is part of the UK shopping culture, and is environmentally sustainable, as all items are saved from being discarded.

What should I wear?

We'll be on foot for most of this experience, so comfy shoes and clothes to suit our weather. Usually, the weather in Edinburgh is mild or cool, but check the forecast on the day for rain and temperature updates. Tours will only be cancelled due to weather in the most exceptional of circumstances.

Edinburgh is a hilly city, making it difficult to navigate. We’ve designed the easiest routes with our local knowledge and experience! Exact starting point details will be sent when tour after booked.

What’s included?

A wonderful tour off the beaten track in Edinburgh. A hot or cold drink at end of tour in a local eatery to compare finds. The Find of the Tour Prize, if you win.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you need to cancel, please inform me as soon as you are able. Cancellations made within 24 hours of the commencement of the tour cannot be refunded. Admin costs will be deducted from all refunds.

How much do your shopping tours cost?

Prices for the Classic Cocktail Safari, the Deluxe Safari, and the Bargain Hunters’ Safari are £23 per person.

*Prices for the Exclusive Safari and Super Safari will vary depending on the length of the tour and the distances travelled.

How are tickets organised?

I shall send digital tickets to your mobile phone, which you can show me on the day. If you prefer, I can email you a printable voucher, or post it to you if you need me to.
