I went on the week day tour and had alot of fun. It was very interesting to hear about the effect of chistian beliefs on people who decided to do something for their community at that time. I didnt know the first form of public...More
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.
If you get to Edinburgh don't miss this tour. Starting at the historic St. Columba Free Church of Scotland, you get to walk through so much of the history of Scotland from where is has been in the past to where it is as a...More
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
What a gem of a visit! Not sure what to expect but was taken back in time to learn about our Christian heritage, origins of human rights, educational and scientific foundations here in the capital. We were shown some amazing places and were taken to...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.
