Who, when, where, what, why?

Why a musical tour?

It is often forgotten that songs with stories were the only way people had to communicate with each other. Modern humanity is used to the internet, radio and television constantly pumping out information. OOR Tours is a return to the simple format of live entertainment with no fancy visual effects (except for the Tartan Trousers) or amplification. The small closes, streets and courtyards of Edinburgh’s Old Town are ideal for exploiting this and provide excellent acousitcs.

Who is this tour suitable for?

The musical tour of Edinburgh’s Old Town is suitable for all ages. It is family friendly and can appeal to young and old. It is also available for corporate entertainment, team building, birthdays, stag or hen parties or just friends.
