I’ve just got back to the school and have heard very positive things about the walking tour yesterday. The students found it a very good balance of history and poetry and were very happy with the pace of the tour, a good mix of walking and listening! Thank you to Peter!

Great performance! We attended to Spirit of Burns and Stevenson walk in December, and I can say it was a great experience. Peter and Jack are a highly profesional artist, have an exceptional knowledge about these exceptional writers, and their performance is theatre at the street. We knew the Stevenson´s work is great, but we didn’t know much about Robert Burns. Nevertheless, this was an advantage, because Burns was a marvelous surprise. Besides, we got impressed about the lives of both writers. Sometimes, it was difficult to understand, because of the Scottish language. However, I believe it makes an especial atmosphere, which turn it into a highly realistic performance. I would recommend this tour, especially to people who are interested in the Edinburgh history, arts and literature. Thanks again. Susana and Juan Carlos, December 2016
'As a foreigner, I didn’t know much about Burns and Stevenson beforehand, nor could I understand the occasional Scots dialect within their poems. However, Peter and Jack were incredible in translating - or Anglicizing - the Scots, and they did a great job in introducing me to these two significant Scottish writers. I could see how knowledgable the guides were and their passion for the subject was infectious. Thank you, Peter and Jack, for teaching me and giving me a newfound understanding of this city’s literary history!'

'We had a great walking tour in Edinburgh on 23/06.
Peter and Jack are both inspirational storytellers and showed us beautiful places in Edinburgh.
Thanks for the organization!'

‘Peter and Jack were fantastic. Initially they had to be extremely patient with us as we had problems with the flight from Holland and couldn't commit to a time until late on. Following that the actually tour.
Both guides showed a great depth, passion and an ability to pass on their stories to our guests in a clear and interesting manor. They were enjoyed by all. Please thank them both for me and I will be sure to be in touch should a similar opportunity come forwards. ’
