It was a super cold night and there were only 4 total people on the tour, but our guide, Adam, was awesome. The passion he had for telling the stories was probably the best I have had concerning a guide. Edinburgh is steeped with a glorious yet treacherous history and Adam made these stores come to life. Highly recommended!

What a good way to learn the history and interesting stories of Edinburgh. Adam was an amazing story teller. He was so animated that the stories just came to life. I could of listened to him tell stories all day long.

One Tip: The climb to the top of Carlton Hill is a little difficult , but well worth it. I have a medical condition that caused me to lag behind the group Adam was so kind and caring to walk to the back of the line to make sure I was doing ok, while never compromising the schedule or the experience of the Tour for the others..

This was a really excellent tour, I did not know what to expect from this.

The Tour Guide cant remember her name was really good and told us about all the history of the old Murder and Legend tales of Edinburgh

I would certainly book again on my next visit :

Sarah was wonderful! Lots of local knowledge, shared personal stories and was a very efficient tour guide - which was great for us as we had just 1 day in Edinburgh. I do wish there was an option for a longer tour! :

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. I looked through many similar ones, but this one stood out and we had a great time! Our guide, Adam, was amazing, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and a brilliant, hilarious storyteller. He had us enthralled from the start to the end. Organisation at the start of the tour could have been a bit better the umbrellas said Edinburgh Pub Crawl, and there was a bit of confusion about which groups were going with Spanish speaking guides and English speaking ones etc. The guides having cards to hold in the air may have helped. That was our only criticism though: it was nice not to be in the pitch dark as we went round I saw that other, similar tours change their starting times in the summer, as the weather and visibility was better. The stories didn't lose any of their effect! There was time to stop and take pictures or to take some and catch back up with everyone, which I enjoyed, especially as we went up Carlton Hill and got to see stunning views towards Leith. There are approx. 100 steps to do to get up the hill, which is something to bear in mind. Doable though, and totally worth it! Adam's stories were really engaging and intriguing, and they spanned all sorts of topics, from murder and grave robbing to witchcraft. Walking pace was fine, and Adam stopped to tell each of his stories, so we could all gather round, hear what he was saying no straining to hear someone shouting behind them! and rest for a few minutes. He also chatted to everyone on the tour about where they were from etc, and gave us food and drink recommendations after the tour. We highly recommend this tour it is great value for money, and it rounded off our trip to Edinburgh nicely we did the tour on our last night. Enjoy!

Angus, our tour guide, is an interesting person. Talked a lot good story and also showed us stunning view of Edinburgh. The tour is not really about ghosts and murderer, just a little bit of them included. I would recommend this tour and it is cost effective.

The tour was a lot of fun, I got to see a lot of the city I probably wouldn't see otherwise. We saw a lot of interesting sites, heard some creepy and funny stories, and our guide Angus was great. Would recommend!

Our Tour guide Angus was brilliant, kept us all entertained with his facts and his humour. I Would definitely recommend the haunted tour to anyone of any age. Our daughter of 11 years old was talking about it for days after with her friends. We can and #39;t wait to try some of the other tours next time.

My son had to go it alone, as I had slipped early in the day and bruised a hip. He returned raving about the tour and I was miserable to have missed it. Regardless, he had fun and wanted to book another one.

Very entertaining and the guide was very funny and quizzed us a bit so made sure everyone felt involved in the tour. Quite a bit of walking involved but thoroughly knowledgable and enjoyed all the history! Would definately do again!

This is a great walking tour!!! Our guide Sabella was awesome!! She was so animated and knew tons of Edinburgh facts.
It took us to parts of the city that we would have never gone to on our own... So glad we did it!

We participated in a tour led by Greg. I certainly hope he is a professional actor because he certainly has the chops for it. The tour was highly informative, lively, and entertaining. I cannot recommend this tour and this tour guide more highly!
