The darkside walking tour is an absolute must for everyone looking for an interesting, funny and spooky guided walk through Edinburgh. This tour will bring you to some unexpected and, sometimes well hidden, gems of this historical city like for example Calton Hill. Climbing this hill will be rewarded with a stunning panoramic view over the city by night while learning about its history. Our guide James definitely made sure that we would make the most out of this tour. He was funny, enthusiastic and well informed about the more haunted and mysterious side of Edinburgh. An absolute must!
We were a group of 4 adults, we joined the larger group after having dinner near by. The guide, Alistair, was energetic and animated, it was fun to listen to his tales. Lots of walking! This would not be a tour for someone who has trouble walking, there are hills up and down as well as steps on this tour. At the end we stopped at a kirk yard for some additional tales. Very fun, great guide!
We were very lucky as we had a mild, dry night to do this walk. We didn’t expect to be going out of the city a bit and up Calton Hill so that was a pleasant surprise. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the walk fun. He brought the group into his stories and his telling of them was done without a hesitation. Very professional and friendly. Only thing we weren’t sure about was why we were each given a little cloakroom type ticket when we arrived at the meeting point as we didn’t use them for anything and were never asked for them again! Great tour though.
Adam G was a fantastic tour guide. His stories were varied and engrossing and, we later found out, fully developed by Adam himself. We were told of murder, grave robbing, and vampires and how they related back to the beautiful and storied scenery of Edinburgh and Leith. What stood out the most about this tour was the sombre recounting of King James VI's obsession with the dark arts and Adam's respect for the thousands of people wrongfully accused of witchcraft and executed under the king's rule. Using this as a starting point, Adam weaved an incredibly heartfelt and authentic message of acceptance, which was revisited later on in the tour with equal passion. Between our host and the wonderful scenery, this was the best ghost tour I've ever had the pleasure of attending.
Good tour! Myself and my family enjoyed the locations we walked to, mostly Calton Hill as it was just at sunset so the views were fantastic. I enjoyed our guide thoroughly as well. He was very knowledgeable and very likable the perfect demeanor for this tour! I was under the impression this would be more of a ghost tour so I was disappointed when the guide said instead this was NOT a ghost tour and more a historical tour involving mystery and murder. I still enjoyed the tour but warning to anyone who wants a ghost tour- this is not for you!
Adam made the tour really funny and informative. This was a great way to get a good lay of the city on my first day, plus learn some really interesting history of the city. Decided to add a few things to see on my trip based on what I learned surgeon's hall and arthur's seat. Would have totally missed out.
