A big thanks to Megan for being an amazing guide and storyteller on this tour. Her enthusiasm and knowledge about the city and it's history is wonderful, and can be exemplified. The tour was full of great historical stories about Edinburgh and elements that can leave you sufficiently spooked (that is what we were looking for). Keep up great work!

Probably better enjoyed if you believe in ghosts and the like...

We had Anya as our tour guide and she was great. I really enjoyed the history side of things and found that very interesting. However, I am very sceptical when it comes to ghosts, spirits etc. so the stories about people seeing things, hearing things and feeling things whilst down in the vaults, just didn't do it for me.

Hour well spent

I enjoyed this tour a lot, and so did my 7 year old. The guide, Darren, was personable. The areas we saw were truly fascinating, a bit spooky, and very atmospheric. The hour flew by in no time, and we left feeling like we'd had a really great experience. I found the jump-scares a little pointless, but then I'm not easily scared. It was interesting from both a historical and supernatural point of view.
