Try this one, it gets very good reviews http://www.blackhart.uk.com/
Mercat tours are very good. I have not been lcky enough to go on The Witcher tours yet.
You could also try these companies listed by TA at the top of this page.
Thank you for the replies. I haven't seen the Black Hart Tours before.
I know someone who recently took the Blackhart Ghost Tour and thought it excellent. Mercat also have a great reputation and I enjoyed their Ghost tour.
I can recommend the City of the Dead tour - the black hart tours suggested above - takes you to one of the best documented poltergeists in history. I've been on it twice and both times was very scary! But unlike most of the other ghost tours in Edinburgh they actually genuinely believe in ghosts, so be warned, not for the faint hearted!
Thank you, Purpleceltic. I've lurked the site & boards for some time, and you always seem to be so helpful.
Is that the one that takes you into the Covenanters' Prison and to the Black Mausoleum? I looked that one over, & it looks great. What's your opinion on taking teen girls through that tour?
Tessa - yes that's the one. As for teen girls... depends on the girls. If they're pretty level headed and not easily scared then they should be fine, but it is very scary and if they are at all sensitive or easily frightened then I would not recommend it. I've been twice and the first it really scared me, and nothing significant happened. My friend went on it and when he was there someone was attacked by the poltergeist and he said there was mass panic. So you might be better with one of the other tours if the girls are easily scared.
We went on the Graveyard tour last Saturday night and to be honest, I wasn't greatly impressed. We seemed to spend more time on the steps of St Giles going over the history of the Picts, Scots, etc versus the Romans and others than visiting graveyards (Only one graveyard was involved - Greyfriars)
Thanks, I appreciate the feedback on both of those tours. What I'd like to do is tread a fine line between giving them an unforgettable frightening experience and traumatizing them for life.
