About this experience

This is a walking tour that is fun, educational, and different. It’s made of stories of real people and animals, treasured myths, literature and architecture, pitched to give you a look of an offbeat city which is surprisingly involved in world history while also on the edge of it all.

You’ll hear;
- How Scottish people invented the modern world.
- How this city does not know how to treat her heroes.
- How a disagreement over a chair in Edinburgh is responsible for bloody fighting.
- How the buildings became strange.
- How Edinburgh became a major cultural capitol of the world.

You’ll see the major sites of the Old Town with recommendations for other interesting parts of the city to visit, and will end the tour ideally located to enjoy more.
