The World's Greatest Walking Tour of Edinburgh
For their sixth Edinburgh Fringe, the multi-award-winning Three’s Company (***** Fringe Guru, Allthefestivals.com & Edinburgh Guide) are taking to the streets with a walking tour like no other.
Join Cuth McWildered (History GCSE A*), on a literally historical tour of Scotland’s finest capital city. With ghosts, mysteries and verbatim-learned historical facts, this is Edinburgh as you may (admittedly) have seen it before.
This truly original Fringe show takes you round the sites of Edinburgh – and brings you safely back – as the tour guide faces rogue assistants, rival tour guides, mysterious inspectors and a few too many people in ghost costumes but strives to still deliver the educational tour he knows he can.
A true walking tour-de-farce to be reckoned with. History has never been so pedestrian.
PS. The tour includes a free umbrella (though not to keep). Or a free balloon (which you can keep). It also contains walking. And ghosts. And a great fact about Edinburgh Castle.
Three’s Company’s past shows:
“Nothing short of a revelation” *****Fringe Guru on Not The Messiah, 2011
“I would not hesitate in recommending this play. Such is the stuff that dreams are made of.” ***** AllTheFestivals on Reverie, 2010
“Sophisticated and extremely funny.”The Spectator on Play On Words, 2009
“Had everyone laughing out loud and left me thoroughly entertained. Brilliant and well worth seeing.” ****Three Weeks on Auditorium, 2008
“Has the audience erupting with laughter from the start” ****Fest on Play On Words, 2007
“See this show – if you’re fully booked, cancel others” *****Edinburgh Guide on Later Showers, 2005
The tour leaves at 2pm and 6pm from inside the Pleasance Dome (under the large yellow umbrella). It lasts 70 minutes and ends near the same point. The 6pm show has been added late, due to huge demand for the 2pm show, and therefore does not appear in the Edinburgh Fringe brochure. Click here for tickets.
