5 Stars!
“At this point, I’m obliged to tell you that I’m here on behalf of visit Scotland, and have been assessing the tour,”

Just a small amount of panic sets in at hearing these words… It’s my second tour of the day, and my brain starts racing. Did I give it my all? Was it as good as all the other tours I’ve delivered? I know that I enjoyed the run, the pace was good, the chat was fun, the stories were fluid, relevant, and entertaining, but was it good enough?

Then the waiting game, that horrid period of time when you’re anticipating the worst, as your brain tells you everything you could have done, should have done, shouldn’t have done, and every possible outcome.

The report comes in.

An overall rating of 92%, giving us a 5 Star rating from visit Scotland, the national tourism board.

92%

5 Star

We are now counted among the best tour companies in the entire country, and not just in our field, in the whole Scottish tourist industry. Words cannot adequately describe how excited I am about this! The excitement comes two-fold as well, because yes, I am super excited that it’s us that have been the first running tour to be recognised by the governing body for tourism in Scotland, but it is also a huge step for getting running tours recognised globally as a concept. Come along and see for yourselves why we’ve earned out 5 star rating! 😉

Edinburgh Running Tours Business Receives Scottish Tourism’s Highest Accolade
THE TEAM behind the Edinburgh Marathon Festival (EMF) Running Tours are celebrating after receiving the highest accolade possible from the Scottish Tourism Board.

EMF Running Tours are believed to be the only such organisation in Scotland to receive a 5 star rating from the national tourism organisation VisitScotland.

VisitScotland’s tourism board stated that the tours, which launched in May 2016, were “a brilliant addition to Edinburgh’s Tourism programme” and that “the strength of the tour lies in the ease in which the group can travel across the city and visit the more obscure and often overlooked features of Edinburgh.”

James Armandary, EMF Tour Manager commented on the company’s success:

“I’m utterly elated to receive the 5 star rating from VisitScotland! It’s really exciting not just for us here at EMF Running Tours, but for running tours as a global concept as well. Scotland are world leaders in tourism, and to be counted as one of the best products that the country has to offer is an amazing accolade.”

“It’s not easy to get 5 stars, and to be recognised as one of the best tours in the country is a great honour. I’m looking forward to growing EMF Running Tours, adding more themes and routes, and continuing to deliver a five star experience to customers from all around the world.”

EMF Running Tours are guided tours around Scotland’s capital city, offering the opportunity to explore Edinburgh in a unique way. The tours last for approximately 90 minutes and allow participants to see unexpected sights mixed in with the city’s rich history & culture. The tours are consistently rated as ‘excellent’ on TripAdvisor and are now positioned within the top 10 outdoor activities in Edinburgh.

Participants can choose to take part in the standard city tour, or there’s a choice of themed tours, including a Whisky and Trainspotting Tour.
