Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Greet your guide, dressed in period costume, at a central Edinburgh location in the dead of night. Immediately, your master storyteller will launch into spine-tingling tales of Edinburgh’s dark and desultory past.

Follow your guide through shadow-shrouded wynds (narrow streets between houses) on your way to a graveyard famous for numerous ghost sightings. Weave your way between headstones and hear terrifying tales of the restless souls that reside here.

Next, descend to the underground vaults that reside beneath the city; in dimmed light, you’ll step tentatively through narrow passageways while listening to tales of torture, murder, witchery, cannibalism, and body snatching.

After 1.5 hours of frights, ascend from the vaults and bid your guide farewell.

We took the 9.15 walking tour with the hilarious Dr Knox who was very knowledgeable and entertaining! We walked around a few historical points and enjoyed listening to the stories behind them. After this, we went down into the vaults and heard stories about the plague...getting extremely scared after hearing a lot of bangs coming from in the dark tunnels! After going into the vault cannot see a thing unless someone has torch on in which case you will be looking at plenty of dolls that have been left by visitors...some of which Dr Knox himself won't touch due to seeing them move in the past! The entire tour was great - just be careful walking into the vaults as I did in fact slip down a few steps (I was very much concentrating on being scared instead lol) ps we fell in love with Dr Knox
Great fun

Going into the underground Chambers and hearing all the horrors that went on down there. Standing in the dark while listening to Dr Knox tell the stories really gave us the chills. It was a brilliant tour full of information, all while being chilling and humorous at the same time!
