I did neither. I did the City of the Dead tour with Blackhart, http://www.blackhart.uk.com/cod/tours.html

I thought it was excellent and would recommend it.

I did do a Mercat tour in Glasgow. It was fully satisfactory.

I just did one with Mercat and thought it was great. Not a lot of cheesiness (no one popping out at you), good historical information and it included a brief tour into the vaults.

Thanks to all. I think we will try Mercat as I have taken a Witchery tour once before.

There's a very good book called The Ghost that Haunted Itself - about the Mackenzie Poltergist in Greyfriars Cemetary. Well worth reading before your tour!

I've done the Mercat Vaults tour and really enjoyed it
