History is a damn good story, so let us teach your class about our cityís history through engaging and entertaining storytelling, so they donít even know they are learning!

Explore, uncover, examine and imagine

Lead your class back in time with a private tour built around your curriculum needs. Let our guides bring history to life for them as you explore the historic streets or into the Blair Street Underground Vaults.

They will experience:

  • what the people, places and past were like in Edinburgh through the centuries
  • the clues they can find themselves which tell us about the past
  • the famous and infamous characters who walked our streets

Together, our experienced guide and your budding historians can discover Old Edinburgh.

We can provide ghost and history themed tours tailored to your studies, age group and requirements. We also work in partnership with the National Trust and can arrange entry into some of their historic Edinburgh properties as part of your tour.

Please get in touch and we'll be happy to arrange your specialised tour
