Overview

Jam, jute and journalism, right? True. But there's far more to Dundee than that. Come learn how Winston Churchill, Harry Potter, Arctic explorers and pigeons all connect to this city. All tours last one and a half hours and start from the bike rack outside Primark on High Street. To join just turn up for the start time. The tours are free but you are asked to pay what you think it is worth.

Lia was an excellent tour guide- we learnt lots of things about Dundee that we didn't previously know and we've lived here all our lives. She covered many historical facts about Dundee in a very interesting way. Well with the money - you pay what...More
