Što ćete raditi

This tour is a storytelling journey which moves from the edge of the new town, into the old town of Edinburgh. I'll share with you histories, legends, and mythical folktales of Scotland and Edinburgh as we make our way through this spectacular city.
We'll begin in Princes Street Gardens and St Cuthbert's Kirkyard where I'll introduce some of the darker tales of the city. Then, as we walk through the gardens you'll hear stories of some of the monuments including the true story of Wojtek, the bear who became soldier. From there we'll follow the winding streets up to the castle esplanade to admire the view, pausing for some traditional Scottish tales and legends along the way. From the castle we'll follow the steps down to the Grassmarket, once a famous site of execution. Then we'll walk up the cobbled streets to the haunted Greyfriar's kirkyard.
You'll hear histories of families living in cramped conditions, tales of disease and suffering, stories of great fires and the birth of the celebrated Hogmanay gatherings in Edinburgh. And I will share stories from the world of myth and folktale, including tales of the faery folk and stories of hungry dragons. Hearing the stories of the city adds a richness to your experience of Edinburgh, as they are the tales which have shaped the city and its people for centuries.

I'm a professional storyteller with a passion for the myths and legends which tell tales of Edinburgh's past. It is my job to research and learn about the traditional tales which haunt the street corners of this historic city.
I trained as a professional actress and I worked in the theatre for many years before becoming a solo performance storyteller. I'm also a qualified teacher of English to speakers of other languages, so I find it easy to simplify my language to ensure those who are less confident English users are still able to have an enjoyable experience.

Gdje ćete biti

Each place we'll visit is a location of historic interest in Edinburgh. We'll move from graveyards, through gardens and along old streets, wynds and closes. If the weather is cold we can take a pause to get warm in one of Edinburgh's cosy bars or cafes. There are many opportunities to take photos of the fantastic views along the way.

Alice is so engaging and the stories were super interesting and told in a unique and memorable way. Lots of fun, good walk and not at a pace that was too fast. Alice is easy to talk with, but also is very professional and organized, and tells stories in a grand way that is very impressive and exciting. I learned a lot about the city and a variety of small details that I never would have known about otherwise. The weather was great, and we all had a blast. You could tell she is a pro! Everyone who comes to Edinburgh should try this one- it was the most fun I've had in basically a year, and shows another perspective that you can't just read about or wander around and figure out on your own! Thanks for the great experience Alice!

The experience with Alice was as magical as the city Edinburgh. She brought out the children in us, with her wonderfully expressive stories. It’s a great way to introduce yourselves to the city, highly recommended.

The tour was excellent and we found Alice’s storytelling fascinating and thought provoking. Starting in New Town and windy up the hills into Old Town concluding at Greyfriars Kirkyard, the tour blends true history with legends, myths and folklore. It's not a difficult walk for 2 hours with several stops along the way. Would recommend to anyone.

Alice is a natural story teller and has a lovely personality. We enjoyed the walk through the city. We now have a good idea of the city's layout and history . We stopped in different locations to hear a story relevant to the location. Some of the stories were true while others were folktales. Nonetheless, they were all captivating and well told.
