Það sem verður gert

Your cultural discovery begins in the drawing room of our Georgian art townhouse with a preparatory illustrated talk on masterpieces of painting in the National Gallery of Scotland.

Tea and coffee plus cake will be served on arrival. Colin will then provide a contextualised introduction to the works that we will later examine in detail on the walls of the National Gallery. There will be time for questions both after the talk and at the end of the tour in the gallery.

We will spend approximately one hour together during the introductory talk then take a leisurely walk (30 mins) through the New Town to the National Gallery of Scotland on the Mound for a further one hour's guided tour. At the end of your personal masterclass, you will then be free to explore the rest of the collection independently.

Among the works we examine during the tour will be paintings by such old masters as Botticelli, Raphael, Leonardo, Titian, Rubens, Poussin, Velazquez, Rembrandt and Vermeer; and more modern pictures by Monet, Degas, Gauguin, Cezanne and Van Gogh. If during the tour you wish to study the work of any particular artist, please let us know in advance.

Other things to note
This experience is ideal for both enthusiastic beginners and those already familiar with the history of art. Whatever your knowledge of art, Colin will leave you enlightened and keen to find out more.

Edinburgh Art Tours was fantastic. Paul and Michael were wonderful hosts, and Colin was so incredibly giving with his expertise and knowledge. We would highly recommend this experience and can’t wait to reconnect for another tour with them on a subsequent visit.

We were wonderfully welcomed first at Paul's house. Then we received a thorough introduction of art history to contextualise the artwork we would be seeing at the museum. Colin's expertise is without a doubt and we particularly appreciated that he adapted to our level of background knowledge and cultural references. You just know he has the experience needed to adjust and vary according to the people present. We could ask as many questions as we liked and add or offer our perception. We really felt well cared for and Colin's passion came through. it is definitely a high quality experience if you love paintings and their history. Whether you have any art history knowledge, or none at all. Being first welcomed and shown around in the Georgian house definitely adds to the whole experience as well.

If you are interested in art I highly recommend everyone to join this tour! It was actually beyond my expectations. First, Paul gave me a detailed tour of Georgian style townhouse (it was a gorgeous house by the way), and then Colin introduced very important artists and their works as well as interpretations of the works in the National Gallery. I can say that it was very obvious that Colin loves what he does. In addition, he was very engaging and I learned a lot from him not only about art but also Edinburgh's history, best places to eat, and so on. In addition to that, Colin and Paul were very nice people and it should be the tour if you have an interest for art!

It was so great experience in all levels! After 30 years I met again Colin! Colin is the friend, the professor, and the expert historian of art! Paul and Mike have offered us great hospitality and gave us a tour into their beautiful, historical house of contemporary style! Colin is gifted in telling you stories about art with simplicity, humor, and precised details! A tour with Colin, is a journey through time and we also enjoyed the analysis he gave for each painting we saw. In general Athena and I felt very welcomed, friendliness, pure human connection! Definitely we would like to visit you again in the future and we would suggest it to others!

Paul und Colin haben zusammen ein wirklich einzigartiges Erlebnis kreiert. Der Besuch in Paul's wunderschoenes Haus, und danach Colin's total faszinierende Fuehrung, haben einen bleibenden Eindruck hinterlassen, den ich nie vergessen werde!

Beautiful experience with a genius who knows many things. The walk was longer than I expected. I also really enjoyed getting to experience the gallery with all the extra information from the tour.
