        Have lived in Aberdeen all my life and still learnt a lot from the tour. Great tech which allows you to not be rushed and do your at convenient time. Looking forward to our next one.

        It was so refreshing to hear an unsanitised view of Aberdeen history. The commentary was excellent, but I still managed to get lost!
        100% recommend

        Dark side of Aberdeen tour
        Lyn_D, Oct 2020
        This was a fun tour with lots of information that I didn't know about Aberdeen. We did the tour at night, so weren't able to take advantage of the museums or the pubs on the route. Will definitely do it again during the day.
