What people are saying about Edinburgh Old Town

Spooky, entertaining, informative, witty.

We had a superb tour last night with James who was kitted out with full make up and costume and fake arms hanging under his coat. He managed to engage every single one of us with his witty banter despite having a large number of non English speakers in the group. He was incredibly entertaining and informative and had us all in stitches, and even jumping out of our skin on a few occasions with his spooky tales. We’ve been laughing all day about some of his comments. The vaults and the cemetery were incredibly chilling and my 11 year old daughter loved it. The right balance between humour and grisly tales.

Not as scary as expected, but a great way to see the city at night!

Dr Joseph Bell was a very clear and articulate guide. We didn't get as many scary stories as expected, but did get some good bits of history and context. We also missed a couple of specific locations in the graveyard because there was another tour there, which I think should be better coordinated in future as I believe one of them had been investigated by paranormal investigators who actually came up with stuff. We only know this because another person on the tour had been there before and told us about it.

Loved this your it was Jumpy, spooky, funny and informative

Amazing tour led by an amazing tour guide, Dr Knox. The tour was very creepy and Dr Knox made us jump and laugh a lot. It was also so interesting giving you information on Edinburgh’s history. We were on a girls weekend away and a few of the girls were nervous about going on a ghost walk but for all of us it turned out to be the highlight of the trip! Highly recommend. Would deffo do it again!!!

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.

Fun, informative tour of Edinburgh Castle!

Angus, our guide, was born in Scotland and has also lived in Australia. He is an actor with theater training and he gave his tour with enthusiasm and a theatrical flair which made it really great! He knew all about the castle and shared many fun details. Highly recommend!
