Very interesting tour which we enjoyed very much, the hour flew by, covered a fair bit of history, yes torches are needed as the ground is very uneasy under foot. Our only gripe was our tour guide obviously had a Scottish accent but we were struggling to understand her as she spoke so fast, this may cause problems for some people.
Really enjoyed the tour. But suggest that as it's a dark cramped area being toured, would be a good idea to supply torches and hard hats on a deposit refundable on returns.
The tour was very informative and the guide was great! As a walking tour it's expected to walk around and nothing was strenuous. In the vaults I wish it went more towards haunted history but it wasn't that type of tour. They also offer a walking ghost tour
This was a very interesting and historically informative tour. The guide had an excellent manner and rapport with the group.
My only complaint is that Viator used the cutoff age of 65 for the Senior's price, whereas Mercat uses 60. So, with Mercat, my wife would also have received the reduced rate. Annoying, especially as it applied to the three tours we booked through Viator.
Brilliant history told by a lovely lady who put a lot of umph into talk.
This was extremely interesting and a part of Edinburgh we would have missed if we didn't go on the tour. It was thoroughly enjoyable, but it would not be good for anyone who is claustrophobic.
This tour was wonderful, very informative and historically accurate. We got to wander around underneath the streets and experience what life was really like. It could have been a bit longer that's the only complaint, which isn't really a complaint! Only went for a bit over an hour.
Guide was excellent and very informative. Froma historical point of view it was very interesting.
We had a good time and the guide was very good at explaining all the historic details.
We will book another visit soon
Tour was very interesting, I learned something new. The guide was very good and enthusiastic.
It was different to the usual tours, and this made it worthwhile
Fantastic little tour and the guide was well conversant in the history of hte place.
This was a very good tour and Rae the guide, was informative and it well worth doing if you in Edinburgh.
An interesting look at a hidden part of the city. The guide was knowledgeable and very friendly.
We had a very informative guide on this tour. Enjoyed hearing the history of the vaults and the walk through the various underground rooms. We appreciated this tour more than the Double Dead tour as it was more about the history and not a "ghost" tour.
Tour guide loved the sound of his own voice so I lost interest sometimes!
Loved the tour, loved the vaults, loved the tour guide! Really cool experience. The only issue is I felt it was a little pricey considering the length of the tour, but I would still definitely do it again.
The tour was interesting although the guide was a bit patronising and was not keen on questions. Still worth doing though
Took the Tour on 28th January 2013 with my daughter (in her 20's) and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Our Guide, Wendy was well informed and delivered many interesting facts above and below ground level. I have been on several Edin Tours felt this was defo one of the best. A hidden gem.
