This tour was amazing! Our two hosts were very knowledgable and we got to see quite a bit in a short time. It snowed a bit during the tour but you're quickly inside (underground) so it wasn't a big deal and added to the spookiness.

We've been on ghost tours and haunted walks in other cities (we've nearly memorized Ottawa's haunted walks), but Edinburgh was on an entirely other level. Tinged with enough humour to make it not too creepy, the Ghosts & Ghouls tour is a reminder of the...More

Our guide Sara was just amazing. She immediatly set the tone with a little Sassanach whipping, and had many ghost stories to tell during the vault tour. Do not miss!

We had a great tour guide, Angus, who provided fun filled stories with theatrics. Interesting spots visited, fir amount of walking. If you want fun facts with some Edinburgh history then this is for you.

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
