The finest tour guides in Auld Reekie will help to guide you on this journey safely whilst telling you the tales of Edinburgh’s grim past.

“Very awesome experience if you like dark history. The tour makes you see some easy to overlook landmarks/monuments, that have macabre stories behind them.
Entering the vaults gives you a little taste of how the less fortunate people used to “live”, if you can even call it that.”
“Great tour with some (a little creepy ????) facts and figures about the Royal Mile and the South bridge vaults. Great atmosphere with a fun and knowledgeable guide.”
“Some great information on the history of Edinburgh and the locations toured. It was interesting to hear the spooky stories behind even the most unassuming of streets. The access to the vaults was also enjoyable. I would recommend going at night for extra fun.”
“The vaults tour is worth it, the guide was super entertaining and the whole experience was creepy, insightful and fascinating. Must go!”
“Such a fun spooky tour to do while in the city. Our guide shared all the nitty gritty stories of the area and was very captivating!”
