Edinburgh audio tour: The Thousand Year Theft

About the Tour

Life isn’t easy for you on board the New Hopes Space Station in the year 3015. You’ve got yourself into a bit of debt, and the only place to turn for some extra cash was crime boss and loan shark Abe Martelli. Now you owe more than you can pay back, but that’s okay. Martelli is a fair man; he’ll allow you to work the debt off instead.

The job he’s given you seems fairly straightforward. You’ll be sent back in time to Edinburgh in the year 2015 to pick up a stolen painting, before taking it back with you to the future, where he’ll sell it on for a massive profit.

Time travel is illegal and dangerous, but you’ll have experienced mission co-ordinator Mr Jennings guiding you every step of the way. What could possibly go wrong?

Tips

Places to stop along the way

Hide out in the Alexander Graham Bell pub if things get too much for you, good luck finding the toilets though, you'll need a separate GPS tour for that.

Best time of day

During the day, when it's light.

Precautions

You have to cross a few roads so be careful. This adventure is a work of fiction with a mature narrative.

Interesting concept, but to short a story

Thanks for a great walk! I enjoyed the mission (and am looking forward to figuring out how to spend my last few hours in Edinburgh without running into any secret agents!)
