Чем вы займетесь

My tour will take you on a journey through the old town of Edinburgh. I'll share with you historical tales, legends, and some of the more mythical tales of Scotland and Edinburgh. I'll also sing you the odd song as we journey through the streets and graveyards.
We'll begin in Princes Street Gardens where you'll hear the history of Wojtek the bear who became soldier, and the story the gardens themselves. We'll enter the graveyard of St Cuthbert's Kirk and I'll introduce some of the darker tales of the city. From there we'll climb up to the castle esplanade to admire the view, pausing for some traditional Scottish tales and legends on the way. From the castle we'll head for the Grassmarket where you'll hear some tales of hangings which took place there. Then we'll head to the haunted Greyfriars kirkyard where you'll hear tales of perhaps the darkest period in Edinburgh's history. From here we'll visit Cowgate, Borthwick Close, the Royal Mile and Tron Kirk. You'll hear histories of families living in cramped conditions, tales of disease and suffering, stories of great fires and the birth of the great Hogmanay gatherings in Edinburgh.

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.

とても興味深く、面白かったです。それとなによりも良かったのは、彼女の英語がとても聞き取りやすく、英語が苦手な僕でもコミュニケーションが取りやすかったことです。エディンバラを訪ねた際には是非このツアーに参加することをお勧めします。

Alice makes you feel welcome immediately, she’s wonderfully dynamic and she’s attentive to each person. Whatever your level of knowledge in English, she is very easy to understand and open to any questions. She’s also very passionate by her stories and made me discovering another side of Edinburgh that I would have certainly not learned in any books. It was my first experience with a storyteller, hoping many others in the future. Thanks a lot to Alice for this amazing experience !

I loved... loved this tour!!! Alice is an amazing storyteller and had so many interesting myths and unusual stories to tell us about the city. My parents are older and Alice was so accommodating with taking short breaks and taking different walkways so it made it easier for them. This tour is a must to take!

Alice was a very engaging and entertaining storyteller; she was lovely. This tour is more about the legends, myths and stories about Edinburgh. It was wonderful and unique because I learned stories about the Fairy Folk who apparently live within the land; this then translates into how the real life idea of respecting the land came about. Fascinating stuff and Alice had clearly researched the legends of Edinburgh!
