Christmas Private Tours

Welcome to the Christmas Private Tours, the wittiest night out in Edinburgh!

If you have a group of 10 or more, your can start or end your tour with a christmas dinner at one of our superb partner venues, and experience one of the world's most visited literary tours through the words of our characters, in private for your group. Clart and McBrain will lead you through the pubs, wynds and cobbled streets, that become gloriously colourful during Christmas Season, but where the darkness of old times still lurks... Uncover the hidden stories that lie side by side with outstanding literary landmarks. Experience the true Scottish banter between the bohemian Clart and the intellectual McBrain and discover how the city and its history become alive with the infamous duel between the two. And don't miss the best beers and whiskies in town when we stop at the pubs... Come with your group and enjoy the ultimate pub tour this Christmas!
