Scottish Church History, Reformation And Presbyterian Heritage Tour

Led by Bible believing Scottish Christians, we will guide you through Edinburgh's Old Town visiting locations of significance to Scotland's Reformation, the Covenanters and Presbyterian history. We will stop at locations and hear the stories of the people and the events of this period

We are a non-profit ministry of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Scotland.

Our tours are not merely sight-seeing arrangements. Our goal is to encourage you in your Christian faith, and to point out how and where the people and places you learn about honoured Jesus Christ in everything they did and how you can do the same today.

Our tour guides are Bible-believing Christians who care deeply about helping to build up your faith.

We are also happy to add in any other location you would like to visit within a reasonable distance.
