Jane had a wealth of knowledge of the local history and really made things come alive. We were really lucky to have great weather which made it even that much more enjoyable. My friend and I were shown things around the city that we would definitely have either missed or not understood the significance. The stories were absolutely brilliant too!

We had an excellent tour with Jane today. She was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and happy to answer our questions. We covered lots of history and buildings and for us it was a good mix of walking and talking. We would highly recommend the tour to get the most out of this lovely little city.

I had a wonderful time learning the Scottish history and personal touches from my guide Jane. She was full of knowledge, personable, and took the time to answer my unrelated questions about hiking/ cycling.

We thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour of Stirling old town. We learned so much about the social and political history of this part of the world. Our guide, Jane, was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very personable. For anyone with even a passing interest in history, we can wholeheartedly recommend this tour. Thank you, Jane, for a fascinating historical journey!

A great introduction to this lovely old town of Stirling. Our tour guide was Anne, who was very friendly and welcoming. The tour was relaxing and unhurried with time to ask questions. Not too far to walk but lots to see and hear about in a small area. Anne gave us the history of Stirling and some of Scotland - William Wallace and Robert the Bruce and Kings and Queens. She pointed out lots of things which we would have missed on our own. On her recommendation, after lunch we visited the Church of the Holy Rude which was interesting (we liked the history of the King James Bible). Highly recommend to do this walking tour - and walking tours in general when visiting special cities. Josie and Neil from Cheshire

Went on the tour with Georgia and for it being only her third one on her own she was very good. She had great knowledge and pointed out a lot of things we would have missed. Thanks for a great tour Georgia.😄

I found this company when i was looking for a walking tour to do when we were in Stirling.
We were lucky and the sun was shining and made for an enjoyable walk around the old town.
Our Guide was Jane and she was fab. Very knowledgeable about Stirling and it was great listening to her stories about what happened here many years ago.
Would highly recommend this company and our guide.
