It all starts with the legend of Greyfriars Bobby, the dog that lived for many years next to the tomb of his beloved master… This 2 hour walking tour will take you in the footsteps of iconic writers such as Stevenson, author of the world famous Treasure Island and the infamous Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde, Arthur Conan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes) and many more.

Surely your kids are going to love knowing that JK Rowling wrote the adventures of Harry Potter in Edinburgh, and they will love seeing parts of the city where she got her inspiration.

On a more intellectual side, everyone will try to understand the theories of David Hume, a Scottish philosopher, when climbing up the Calton Hill and enjoying the beautiful panoramic view from there.

To make it even more interesting for the children, they will all receive a fun-filled and educative game booklet. Peter Pan and Ivanhoe won’t have any secrets any more!
