Great Tour. The tour guide had the balance between comedy and facts just right. We went as a family including a 13 year old and a 16 year old, and both really enjoyed it

Really recommend this tour. Even in the wind and rain of a December evening in Edinburgh it was a good laugh. An alternative way to learn and explore the City.

This was interesting, informative and good fun. There's a few jumpy moments and the guide was naturally funny, it didn't feel forced or awkward. This is my second 👻 walk around Edinburgh, the first was the south bridge vaults so I wanted to stay overground...More

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

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
