John and Alison(?) (Mr. Clart and Ms. Brain) were adorable foils for this Edinburgh evening out. Poetry and performance, and stops at three nice pubs for a pint was a great way to spend the first evening in Edinburgh. Highly recommended.

Fun evening full of both the classic Scottish writers, and some modern ones, and of course some really great pubs.

I am no literary buff, in fact I was taking this tour to humour a friend of mine. But in the end I was completely hooked in and I am now quite tempted to read Ivanhoe along with other Scottish literary works that I will have to google as I have forgotten their names haha ;)
Entertaining and informative, a delightful way to spend your evening in Edinburgh!

My husband and I had a great time except...the large group that held the entire group back by buying bottles of champagne at each stop and we could not leave until they finished. Other than that it was great!
