“Any time I travel to somewhere new, my partner and I love to do a ghost tour. We were recommended this tour by a family member and it really did not disappoint!
We were totally spooked and had a laugh at the same time. The tour itself was very informative with comedic and spooky aspects as well, making it extremely entertaining and worth the money.”

“We did the underground vaults tour and we thought it was amazing. Was great to walk down the Royal Mile and learn some gruesome facts about the way these people used to live. Seeing the torture devices was also extremely interesting. I definitely recommend this tour!”
“My friends and I went on this tour, and it was absolutely amazing!! Our tour guide was so captivating with her knowledge on the spooky history of Edinburgh, and I loved hearing about everything she had to say. There was even a couple ghost stories that gave me the shivers, but it was nothing excessively scary.”
“A really good time, got to learn some history of the city I didn’t know and while I didn’t have any spooky experiences it was still eerie in the vaults. Tour guide was charismatic and entertaining.”
