What brilliant storytellers Stewart and Louise are. The 1 hour tour felt so short as we were taken from the Perth Road to the Old Steeple through rebellions, war, disasters and treachery. A great experience. Our first tour but certainly not our last. Thanks so...More

Fantastic tour with Louise and Stewart who were both knowledgable and entertaining. Being a local, I thought I knew Dundee history but I learned a lot! Will definitely go on another one!

Did our first tour Saturday past and it certainly won't be our last. Loved it. Packed with information regarding Dundee's past and characters. Presented by Louise and Stewart with eloquence and a lot of humour. Very very enjoyable.

The guys do a fantastic job explaining the really dark side of Dundee. That's a few walks I've been on with my wife now and each one has been excellent. Can't fault them at all. Cannot recommend highly enough.
