Dundee has an increasing number of tours, trails and interesting walks.

Dundee’s renaissance has sparked a boom in specialist walks and tours of the city.

With visitors coming from far and wide, and locals showing renewed pride in their surroundings, new opportunities to explore its history and environment are springing up all the time.

Convener of Dundee City Council's City Development Committee, said: "Dundee is a city that rewards a closer look as there's so much here to see and do that appeals to all tastes.

“So a specialist tour of the city can give huge and unexpected rewards to the curious visitor who wants to know a lot more about one aspect of our fantastic and complex city."  

Most of the tours are on foot, taking advantage of Dundee’s “walkable city” geography.

Among the first to set up specialist tours were DD Tourswho started running walking tours in 2016.  They now have over 15 different tours on offer.  Or try their newly launched audio tour which explores the waterfront of Broughty Ferry, it's their first so it's completely free.

In addition to this you can do a running tour to explore the city with Dundee Running Tours or explore artwork hidden down lanes with Open/Close Dundee or view artists work in some Dundee Windowsand a tour of Albert Square with Bright Dundee tours which is also home to The McManus:  Dundee's Art Gallery & Museum  (they also have audio tours in various languages available within the gallery).
