Full Description

Step deep into the famous underground vaults of Edinburgh - one of the world’s most haunted cities! Your guide - dressed in a full period costume - will entertain you and teach you about the ghost stories and the history of Edinburgh’s gruesome past. Hear the stories of ghosts, torture, witches and hangings!

Unlike most ghost tours, this tour takes place in daylight. However, not every place we visit is brightly lit. As we head into the underground of the city, just beneath South Bridge off the Royal Mile, the atmosphere becomes gloomy and dark. It would not be the first time that a guest spotted a ghost moving about!

Moreover, we will walk around the Old Town closes of the city - Hear the historically accurate stories of horror and torture that shocked Edinburgh back in the days.
