HIDDEN ABERDEEN TOURS; focusing on the forgotten, hidden, isolated and lost, but always bringing history back to life!
Hidden Aberdeen Toursis a local company which aims to share the history of our Granite City with locals and visitors alike via regular themed walking tours during summer and online participation in our social media outlets.
Our walking tours, lasting anything between 90min to 2.5hrs, currently feature various themed routes around Aberdeen City. Each of the current tours has its own page with a description, maps and further resources.
ALL TOURS ARE TICKET-ONLY
Unless otherwise stated, tickets are available through the local Box Office. This season we are working with Aberdeen Box Office on ticketing for public tours.
Customers do have the option of calling on the day of a tour to check for free spaces - if a tour is not sold out, there will be the option to pay at the start of a tour. We cannot guarantee spaces unless you have a ticket in advance.
Spring/Summer Season 2013 Prices for PUBLIC TOURS:
£10 Adults; £8 Concessions
(concessions include students, OAPs, under 16s and unwaged)
Most private tours can be booked in advance via PayPal or directly into our company account.
Private group charges
If you wish to book a tour for your company, group or organisation, please contact us via email or phone in the first instance. Maximum participants 30. You can choose from any of the history tours, or have a route tailored to your interest.
PLEASE CHECK PUBLIC TOUR DATES FIRST!
We cannot accommodate bookings at the same time as public tours as there is only one staff member!!
For the independent traveller, or couples the charge is slightly more than a public tour as a private booking does incur extra expenses for the company. For groups of 3 or more, see “small group charges” Adults £10+ £2 booking fee Students, Unwaged, OAPs £8 +£2 booking fee
e.g. 2 adults =£22; 1 Student =£10
Standard charges for large groups:
£12 per adult/ £8 per concession + £10 booking fee
e.g. a group of 20 adults = £250.00
Reduced charges for charities, community groups or privately funded organisations:
£8 per adult/ £5 per concession + £10 booking fee
e.g. a group of 10 adults = £90.00
N.B. Ghost Tours are not available for private bookings as they only take place on Halloween as a special event
We have already worked with local branches of major companies, e.g. BP; Ledingham Chalmers, Statoil and the Wood Group. We have also organised special tours for Aberdeen University and the City Council, and created tours for community groups such as Torry Community Council and Gilcomston South Church’s over 50s group.
For small groups of 3 to 7 we have a special rate :
£40 only (Plus Booking Fee of £5)
You can book on any route, or, with 2 wks notice, have a specially tailored tour based on a ‘pick n mix’ of the tours in our repertoire. Suitable for tourists and families.
In Scotland, we have a very changeable climate, and are likely to get the proverbial ‘four seasons in one day’ often, therefore we normally do not cancel a tour if it is raining. Storms or floods, now that’s a different story. If there IS a cancellation, it will appear on the Twitter feed - viewable on this website, otherwise you can check via our phone number on the day of a tour. As ‘The Big Yin’ says “There’s no bad weather, only the wrong clothes!’ - come prepared! :-)
