I did not enjoy this at all. Way too long and the performers had such thick Scottish accents I could not understand what they were staying throughout the performance. Also since our tickets were on a Saturday night the pubs were full and we had...More
This is a tour with a difference. You don't really have to any knowledge of books but its a fun way to gain some knowledge. The tour guides were fantastic. Whilst this is a fairly flat walking tour there was one section that was a...More
A pleasant evening out with two actors who enjoy what they do and provide and interesting background to the history of Edinburgh particularly in relation to its poetic links. They clearly love what they were doing and cared about the people they were presenting to....More
Despite living relatively local to Edinburgh and traipsing up and down the Royal Mile on quite a few occasions, I must admit that I'd never really ventured down the closes so I was very pleasantly surprised with all the hidden gems just off the Royal...More
This was a fun way to spend an evening in the great city of Edinburgh. Pitched at just the right level it provided entertainment and information in equal measure. Our guides were husband and wife duo Paul and Hazel, who brought the characters to life...More
We enjoyed ourselves so much on the Edinburgh Literary Pub (Walking) Tour! The cast for our evening was Alex (Mr. Clart) and David (Mr. McBrain). These gentleman were very engaging and entertaining. They also provided a lot of wonderful information about many of Edinburgh's famous...More
This was really the first thing we did after getting into town and I was so glad. Hazel and her husband(sorry his name escapes me) were amazing and knowledgable plus friendly. You'll not be disappointed!!
Great way to hear about the history of writers in Edinburgh. Hosts were very entertaining and informative, taking us to a couple of pubs that would not have otherwise been on my radar! Did not realize there would be some steep hills/stairs for my mom...More
We enjoyed the actors, John Muir and Hazel, and the information they provided about Sir Walter Scott, Robbie Burns, Robert Louis Stevenson and other Scottish writers. Other than the first pub, the other three were not directly related to the writers; they were just pubs....More
John Muir and Hazel were awesome guides as they played fun characters that took us on a lovely, engaging tour of Scotland's literary history, and the context around the work of great Scottish writers. Super fun. Nice walk. Great pacing, with ample time to hangout...More
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
