For a very good price, me and my friend could join this very entertaining tour. One of the main reasons that made us choose this tour was the fact that, despite being done at night, it wasn't on of those tours in which we get frightened or get caught by surprise by someone dressed up. For those who want that... More

I'm not into theatrical tours, and I was thankful this wasn't one of them (no costumes or jumping out to scare people). This is a more historical tour, but definitely still entertaining! I did actually get creeped out hearing some of the stories, specifically when we went into the cemetery (the tour is at night, so it does get dark... More

My wife and I took the night tour, man it was fun. I was told before I went that it was scary, and I thought yeah right, but mercy.....it scared the crap out of us, especially at the end. Great few hours.....and a fun way to see Edinburgh at night, which is a beautiful city by night anyhow.

Excellent service. Not usually a fan of ghost tours and walks, however, I personally enjoyed this walk. Wasn't full of people dressed up in costumes to try and scare you, just a simple walk with some interesting stories.

After having done the Sandemans free tour of Edinburgh last year, an experience that I thoroughly enjoyed and one that was well worth giving the tip at the end, I had no hesitation in choosing their £10 New Edinburgh Ghost tour during my visit this year. My friends and I turned up at the meeting place for 9pm (as it... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
