It was such a fun tour and very entertaining. Alexander Clapperton Deceased and his associate were both very informative and funny. It was great learning a bit about the darker side of Edinburgh. Not too scary so great for families and the amount of walking isn't very strenuous. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves with this one and definitely recommend it.
Tour guide was super funny. Not really scary more history oriented, which we appreciated. Great for those who appreciate history!
My family and I loved this tour. I would definitely recommend this tour to others as it was recommended to me. Our tour guide, Alexander Clapperton, unfortunately deceased and his assistant (who played several different roles) were just hilarious and told some great ghostly tales. Unfortunately, I didn't get our tour guide's name, but he was fantastic (young student age, long blonde hair) in his role. The gentleman who played each character was great as well. Well worth the time and money. I would highly recommend this tour while in Edinburgh.
What a fantastic experience. Highly recommended for all ages!
Booked this tour for myself and my grand daughter.Bit disappointed that only 5 people showed up. However the guys did a fantastic job and despite the rain they made it a real fun and interesting experience. My granddaughter who is ten had a great time and loves telling everyone she got her hand chopped off for begging and that gran is really a witch. Well done guys, would definitely do another one. Great fun.
I was expecting it to be very scary, but it turned out to be hilarious. Olivia, aged 9. I was scared out of my skin at least 3 times. Olivia's mum, aged 49. Very funny and we all learned something. Ps high heels and short skirts not recommended for this tour. Surprisingly, there were some.
Fantastic trip, good knowledge of the history of Edinburgh and a great laugh. Definitely recommended!

It was a great time the evening that we took the tour. We have taken several others in other cities and this seemed to be better than the others. It was not scary. The two had a good report with each other. The tour helped us to understand the early history of the city and the problems that it was having. We read the book and it was very enjoyable. We would reconment it to those who want to take a night tour.
