The award-winning Cadies & Witchery Tours invite you to join our fearless phantoms for a suspenseful and mirth-filled tour of Edinburgh's Old Town. Step back a few hundred years as Adam Lyal (deceased) and his spooky chums bring the Capital's grisly past vividly to life. Established in 1984, the Cadies have been scaring people from all over the world almost every single night since, and our walking tours have become one of Edinburgh's must-see attractions. Our tours cater to all ages, and are available at different times throughout the evening. If you have any special requirements, or are looking to arrange a personalised experience, just contact us and tell us about it.

Adam Lyal (deceased) was a wonderful tour guide. He flawlessly entwined history, cultural information and comedy into a fun tour. I highly recommend! Also, the tickets sells people in the store at 84 West Bow are kind, informative and helpful!
