This tour will take you into parts of Edinburgh that you did not know existed, off the tourist trail. From hidden Victorian gardens to centuries-old buildings with plenty of story attached. Hear about how the first skyscrapers in the world were built in Edinburgh. Indeed, we hosted the tallest buildings in the world long before any other country caught on to the trend. Find out who the famous local criminal was that became the inspiration for Jekyll and Hyde. Learn where the word Black Market came from and where Ebeneezer Scrooge is buried (yes, really).
