We did the terror at 10 tour and it was awesome. Our tour guide was Ewan, and he made the tour! He was funny and made the it easier to handle the spookiness & the dark things that happened in the vaults. Would go again...More

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

I wouldn't recommend that anyone that has trouble with extremely uneven stairs go down under the city in the tunnels for this tour.
