Extreme Paranormal Underground Ghost Tour in Edinburgh
From US$19,19
Overview
Not for the faint of heart, this 1.5-hour ghost tour of Edinburgh promises to deliver spine-chilling paranormal frights. Edinburgh’s brutal and bloody past has resulted in a heavily haunted present and this tour takes you to some of the city’s most haunted locations. Under the cloak of darkness, you’ll visit a graveyard and descend to the underground vaults that snake beneath the city. Hear vivid tales of torture, murder and body snatching, and enjoy a heightened atmosphere on this small-group tour, limited to 15 people.
What to Expect
Greet your guide, dressed in period costume, at a central Edinburgh location in the dead of night. Immediately, your master storyteller will launch into spine-tingling tales of Edinburgh’s dark and desultory past.
Follow your guide through shadow-shrouded wynds (narrow streets between houses) on your way to a graveyard famous for numerous ghost sightings. Weave your way between headstones and hear terrifying tales of the restless souls that reside here.
Next, descend to the underground vaults that reside beneath the city; in dimmed light, you’ll step tentatively through narrow passageways while listening to tales of torture, murder, witchery, cannibalism, and body snatching.
After 1.5 hours of frights, ascend from the vaults and bid your guide farewell.

Very extertaining

Our tour guide John was great, informative, and the tour was well worth the money. I was a lot more scared than I originally thought I would be.

Nice guide, short stories, few places visited

My friends and I went on the Extreme Paranormal Ghost Tour at about 10 pm, which was also a Halloween walk during our stay in Edinburgh, expecting some really spooky things in midnight and extra Halloween phenomenon. The guide is great. But we still find...More

Apologies that you did not have the experience you were expecting. However, we were running Halloween specific tours this day which might have been more up your street. Our 10.15 tour wasn't marketed as a Halloween tour.

Great night!

My boyfriend and I came across this tour whilst out a walk and decided to do the tour. Dr Knox was our tour guide and from the outset was informative and gave a good narrative of the city's history. He was also very funny and...More
