Quite an informative trip, one and a half hours went in a flash and we learned a great deal. The guide was very knowledgable and very pleasant. Well worth the effort.

A fascinating insight into people and places associated with Old Aberdeen. Lia, the tour guide, has a nice irreverent style - humorous and knowledgeable at the same time. Highly recommended for locals and visitors alike!

Rick is lovely and passionate tour gide. He shortly introduced Scotlands history connected with Aberdeen City, told stories about people in Aberdeen. It's a time spent very well. Just two hours of your life and you will see Aberdeen in different light. Highly recommend!
