Private Guided Tours

Enhance your group visit or incentive travel programme with a costumed guided tour or a visit behind the scenes.

Costumed guided tours

Our lively costumed character guides will take you back to the life and times of Robert Burns. Tours begin at the cottage where Burns was born and can be extended to include Burns Monument, Poet’s Path, Alloway Auld Kirk and the Brig o’ Doon, the last two both featuring in the epic poem Tam o’ Shanter.

Behind-the-scenes tours

Join our expert museum curators for special access to the remarkable Burns Collection. Admire historical artefacts and fascinating personal effects seldom on public view, including some of the actual poems and songs penned by the Bard himself.

Combine these tours with a Burns Supper for the complete Robert Burns experience!
