We really enjoyed the tour! Our guide was Mary Patterson (Nicole) she was fun and very knowledgeable and open to questions! In the underground I was genuinely scared and we got some cool pictures! Definitely would recommend this tour, great for the money.

Our tour guide was amazing. (She also dealt with unexpected bagpipes very well.) The stories were creepy and historically accurate. For the price, it was a great ghost tour.

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.

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
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
