A group of us did this one evening and had a blast. The tour has 3 different timings each evening, leaving from Waverley Bridge. The guide and bus driver were great fun and told you some ghost stories and interesting history about the city, if...More

Got this as a Christmas gift. Classic old school double decker bus. Lasts about 1h 20mins. Takes you round old the main haunted places and gives a little bit of history for each one. Takes you a walk around a grave yard and there maybe...More

Was expecting scared and ghouls but had yawns and boredom. Sorry to say, it's probably the worst tour I've ever done. Nothing scary, didn't find the conductor that funny. It was light hearted fun but really wasn't for us at all.

No, you go into a graveyard for 5 mins, the rest is on the bus. Some sound effects etc. But nothing spectacular happens!
