About this tour

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 as you explore the historic streets or down into the Blair Street Underground Vaults.

Your class 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.
