Чем вы займетесь

Welcome All!! This experience was written for those with a genuine interest in history. In this tour guests hear about the stories of Edinburgh. These stories are different and you're less likely to hear about them on other experiences in Edinburgh.

We start by discovering about where Mary of Guise, mother of Mary, Queen of Scots stayed and had her own private palace only a stones throw from Edinburgh Castle on The Royal Mile.

Afterwards we hear about the story of how Scotland tried to become a world power in the late 17th century by taking control of part of central America.

This is before we find out about the dark story of Edinburgh's last public execution and the tale of Jamaica's first recorded serial killer. A man known as the Mad Doctor of Edinburgh Castle.

Following on from this we discover the home of modern Judaism in Edinburgh and finish up where Deacon Brodie ended his career in crime.

Guests are very welcome to ask questions about the Royal Mile where the experience takes place and anything else on Edinburgh and Scotland. I'll be happy to point out anything else I think you may be interested in.

What I hope is that by the end of this experience guests will have a better love and knowledge of Old Edinburgh and the more unusual history it has, away from the headline history attractions. I BECKON YOU IN!!

Brian is an exceptional tour guide. His knowledge is extensive, yet he shares it with great passion and hilarity. I learned a great deal during his tour and especially appreciated his focus on people groups usually left out of the usual tourist tours - the history of women, Jewish culture, and slavery. At the end he walked us over to his favourite fish and chips shop. What a guy! He was warm, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!!

My girlfriend and I took Brian’s tour we were so pleased as we had seen some of the things he had mentioned but had no idea what they where about, Even though it was only the two of us and Brian. he delivered excellent service . We would highly recommend Brian for his kindness and storytelling you can tell he has a passion for history and knows his stuff! Thank you so much!

Brian’s walking tour was a wonderful addition to our experience of Edinburgh, he met us on time and gave us a unique perspective of the city. He was both knowledgable and charming, you can tell he really enjoys what he does! I highly recommend his tour of the old town, if you want to know the real details and the quirkiness! :)

Lovely guy - great tour! Brian was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and clearly geared his approach to the group he had; it felt like we were going out for an hour with a local who was keen to show off his city rather than a formulaic normal tour. By far the most friendly and fun guide I’ve had in any city! Brian is the man!
