Edinburgh travel tips

1) Elegant cabs in Edinburgh are very expensive

Ever dreamed of taking a ride in an exquisite black cab? It will cost you dearly: for the mounting and the first 450 meters, you will pay 2.1 pounds (2.45 euro) or 3.1 pounds (3.6 euro) at night, then 0.25 pounds (0.3 euro) for every 220 meters. So, a typical trip of 3-4 km in the centre of Edinburgh will cost you 6-10 pounds (7-12 euro) minimum. Alternatives in Edinburgh are Uber, Gett, and Free Now, which will cost half the price to travel around the city centre.

2) Sign in for a pub crawl tour in Edinburgh to visit the finest establishments in one evening

Pub crawl in Edinburgh covers the Grassmarket area and starts at the Jakes bar. For £7 (€8) you can get into 7 bars, drink 5 shots, 1 cocktail, one jager bomb and get a 25% discount at all pub crawl establishments on other drinks. Another great part of this event is the opportunity to meet about 30 people from all over the world and hang out with them. And one more bonus: by participating and paying once, you can come on other days again and again for free.

3) Taste traditional Scottish meat pies in Edinburgh

Scottish cuisine is based on meat, and one of the most hearty dishes is the meat pie. There are two main varieties: scotch pie (with minced meat) and scotch steak pie (with chunks of meat in a sauce). A portion will cost about 2 euro. The pies are served in many places like The Pie Maker.
