    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Dundee: coolest city in Scotland or sink of humanity? On this audio tour you decide for yourself as I take you beyond Dundee's main tourist attractions.

    During the tour you'll encounter a heroic pigeon, James Bond's grandfather and the world's worst poet. You'll learn why Winston Churchill vowed never to return here and how to survive in the Arctic.

    The tour is perfect for first-time visitors to Dundee as well as those who want to learn more about their city - such as by finding out how Dundee came to own the largest cut emerald in existence.
