“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
