The Tour of All Tours
* Please note that this is a walking tour that begins at the Out of the Blue Drill Hall but ends in the city centre. The tour last 60-70 minutes. *
The tour is a guided tour of guided tours that occupies a slippery space somewhere between art, performance and tourism. You will hear about an eclectic range of tours offered in Edinburgh and elsewhere whilst also taking a tour that is off the wall, on the street and quite unique.
This walk through Edinburgh will leave more questions than it offers answers as it explores the political, cultural and personal subtexts of tourism. This is a guided tour for people who never take tours but are curious to know what they are like. It is also a genuine, albeit novel, review service for tourists, and finally, it is an engaged show about the city and how it is presented to both local and visitor. The Tour of All Tours is advanced tourism for those who want to do more than just relax and soak up dates on a guided tour.
