The Dundee 2.0 Tour F.A.Q.s
When will the tours start?
In the spring of 2023. Hopefully, earlier as soon as I get my street trader licence.
Is this a history tour?
Not really, it is about recent history. The tour is about urban planning and regeneration. What mistakes were made in the 1960s and 70s and how some have been rectified in the 21st century.
How long are the tours?
The walking tour loop is about 2 miles or 3 km
However it is very flat with no steps to climb.
The duration of the tours will be about 90 minutes.
How do I book?
Through Eventbrite, links coming soon
What should we wear?
Dress like an onion. In layers, with warm waterproof clothing. Don’t forget comfortable footwear, hats and gloves. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
The route is lovely when the sun is out, in horizontal rain, not so much.
