Paul's knowledge of the times and places covered are as good as it gets. Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy learning, among many things, how the reformers continue to impact our world centuries after their deaths.

This is the best way to learn about the amazing history of Edinburgh and its contribution to democracy, medicine, human rights, education and Christian faith. The host was fantastic and definitely knew what he was talking about.

Amazing, who would have thought. If you want to know what Christians have done for Scotland and why so many died at the hands of tyrannical governments this is the tour. Especially recommended for folks, like me, who don't know much about the city's history

Old Town
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
