What people are saying about Edinburgh

Great experience, shame about the large group

Hostess was fab and very much got into her role, shared some interesting information which was great for the beginning of our trip as it really set the scene for the history of Edinburgh. However, we went on a Monday evening and was extremely surprised by the large group who accompanied us, there was 40+ people which on a tour with one speaker caused some issues...if you weren’t at the front you couldn’t hear a thing when in the grave yard, such a shame as we missed a lot of info/stories. Not sure if the day tours are less busy? The vaults were great, went into 2 separate vaults and was really able to grasp the history. Would recommend watching some stuff online just to prepare as we weren’t aware there was poltergeist activity in one of them...my partner wasn’t very comfortable but both felt surprisingly calm. Aside from the large group, definitely would recommend as a must see and experience if visiting!

A spectacularly spine chilling and informative walking tour.

This was an eye opener! Our tour guide was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. He had a red beard and pony tail. I should have remembered his name but it’s not my strongest character trait. We walked through cemeteries and learned about some of the very unsavory practices that went on years ago. We Also learned the origins of many sayings... such as ‘A stiff drink’ and the ‘The Graveyard Shift’. We then walked uphill to a magnificent view of the city and learned about the persecution of many ‘accused’ witches. I would not have faired well having both red hair and a large birthmark on my back. A very scary thought indeed. We then saw some unfinished architecture (which I preferred that way). Our tour guide was FANTASTIC! It was a throwback of yesteryear in the Old Town of Edinburgh. I highly recommend this tour..,, just wear your walking shoes!

Hannah was very entertaining with the odd ghostly experience to boot!!

Hair being tugged when no one was behind you, a last long breath in your ear, heard by 2 of us, a ghostly cat rubbing against your shins and ghostly fingers stroking your hand and your jawline. All happened to us on our trip down the vaults. Hannah our guide was brilliant, very entertaining and informative. Our favourite tour in beautiful Edinburgh.

Amazing experience for whiskey and non whiskey lovers.

Visited the Scotch Whisky Experience with my partner (who isn't a whiskey fan.) during the tour we both learnt some fun facts about scotch whiskey and enjoyed the hands-on experience of the tour, the animations and little quirky touches make it even more enjoyable.

Lauren and Karis were brilliant tour guides and great fun

Brilliant tour, Lauren and Karis were great fun and really played their parts well. Can’t be helped, but the sounds of Minnie the moocher and Nina Simone did kill the eerie vibe in the vaults. But overall I would recommend this tour.
