“Having lived in Edinburgh almost my whole life and taken many tours with visiting friends, I am more than familiar with the main sights and stories of the old town. This was such a different perspective to take, I learned a great deal and explored a few back courts and closes that I had never seen in almost 50 years of living in and around the city. Highly recommend” TripAdvisor review by Kaz1903 - May 2019

SLUMS OF VICTORIAN EDINBURGH -

A VERY DIFFERENT HISTORY WALK

The Victorian tour is our favourite walk! Robert, your local Edinburgh guide, enjoys the most. ‘Enjoys’ is possibly an incorrect term to use, however! This tour is our most emotional exploration of life for the people on the bottom rung of Victorian society. You’ll discover the injustices and inequalities they faced daily. This tour gives you an exceptional understanding of one of Edinburgh’s almost forgotten periods.
