Чем вы займетесь

This tour is a storytelling journey which moves from the edge of the new town, into the old town of Edinburgh. I'll share with you histories, legends, and mythical folktales of Scotland and Edinburgh as we make our way through this spectacular city.
We'll begin in Princes Street Gardens and St Cuthbert's Kirkyard where I'll introduce some of the darker tales of the city. Then, as we walk through the gardens you'll hear stories of some of the monuments including the true story of Wojtek, the bear who became soldier. From there we'll follow the winding streets up to the castle esplanade to admire the view, pausing for some traditional Scottish tales and legends along the way. From the castle we'll follow the steps down to the Grassmarket, once a famous site of execution. Then we'll walk up the cobbled streets to the haunted Greyfriar's kirkyard.
You'll hear histories of families living in cramped conditions, tales of disease and suffering, stories of great fires and the birth of the celebrated Hogmanay gatherings in Edinburgh. And I will share stories from the world of myth and folktale, including tales of the faery folk and stories of hungry dragons. Hearing the stories of the city adds a richness to your experience of Edinburgh, as they are the tales which have shaped the city and its people for centuries.

I'm a professional storyteller with a passion for the myths and legends which tell tales of Edinburgh's past. It is my job to research and learn about the traditional tales which haunt the street corners of this historic city.
I trained as a professional actress and I worked in the theatre for many years before becoming a solo performance storyteller. I'm also a qualified teacher of English to speakers of other languages, so I find it easy to simplify my language to ensure those who are less confident English users are still able to have an enjoyable experience.

Где вы побываете

Each place we'll visit is a location of historic interest in Edinburgh. We'll move from graveyards, through gardens and along old streets, wynds and closes. If the weather is cold we can take a pause to get warm in one of Edinburgh's cosy bars or cafes. There are many opportunities to take photos of the fantastic views along the way.

5* and A+! Alice is absolutely fantastic. We loved learning about the city in the most fun and energizing way possible - through stories! Even though we've spent plenty of time in the city, we discovered all sorts of new things as we walked, laughed, and loved every moment of this tour. Thanks Alice, you are an absolute GEM!

My daughter and I enjoyed our tour with Alice. Learned quite a bit about Scotland and Edinburgh beyond what we already read in tour guide books. Very nice walking tour as well, with great views of the castle and city that we did not discover on our own. Thank you, Alice, for an enjoyable afternoon!

A lot of fun! Alice is a great storyteller and this walking tour is a good way to learn a little more about how Edinburgh came to be the way it is and explore some of it's stories. This is not a tour full of perfectly accurate facts and figures and dates, but it's a wonderful way to learn some of the local myths and legends and is a lot of fun! We particularly loved the stories about Wojtek the bear and the Little Folk. Alice is lovely and very accommodating and a great storyteller. I would recommend for groups of all ages, as long as you're prepared to walk up a few hills!

We had a wonderful time at the Myth and Legends Tour. Alice mixes history and folklore with vivid storytelling to really provide a sense of how life must have been in the city.
