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.

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!

An enjoyable tour, excellently guided by the 'hangman' Alexander. Fascinating stories that were well told, with a wee bit of crowd interaction for added entertainment value.

Dr Knox was great but there were too many people on the tour which really detracted from the experience. A small group should not be 30 plus people

A fun evening leas by a very charismatic tour guide! Really enjoyed the black mausoleum and hearing about some of the grizzly things that have happened in Edinburgh's past.

It simply was not scary .. funny informative and a lot of walking around the city … only 15 mins of a two hour tour actually underground , very disappointing I’m afraid .

Interesting, fun and spine-chilling

Great fun, fascinating and informative. Dr Knox was wildly entertaining, inclusive of everyone in our party and passionate about Edinburgh and it's history. The vaults were suitably spooky, but some of our group insisted on torches, which did impact on the atmosphere somewhat. Dr Knox worked hard to make sure that this didn't spoil the experience too much, but if you don't like dimly lit spaces, this probably isn't for you! If you do want a spine chilling and hilarious tour however, with the chance of a unexplained encou ter or two, this is highly recommended. Absolutely brilliant.
