This was my favourite tour whilst my partner and I were in Edinburgh for the week. I can't recommend this highly enough. Mr Clapperton applause and his assistant were right on the money with their character performances, fascinating history and many a joke that gave us a good laugh. They made simple courtyards, closes and buildings come alive with thier tales and theatricals. I am really very impressed and it set the bar very high for all the tours we went on around Edinburgh during our stay - none of which topped this one. Thank you ever so much for a truly enjoyable evening.

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.
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.
These guys were so funny! Learned a lot! Would go on this tour again!!
This was one of the highlights of our entire trip. The tour ended up small - just four of us - and I think that's part of the reason it was so great. The guides/actors were completely amazing. The tour is very, very well done. My son is 11, and he loved it too.
My husband and daughter loved this walking tour. The weather was a little damp and wet so there were only four people on the tour and they had a GREAT time. Laughed and enjoyed it! Thanks? Every tour we booked with your service was outstanding.
This was an excellent walking tour! The narrators were great, we learned quite a bit a bit about Edinburgh history, and the performance by the guides was awesome! However hard we tried to be prepared, they always managed to catch us by surprise! We highly recommend this tour.
Very good tour and the guide was very funny but lots of interesting facts and bits off the Royal Mile you probably wouldn't otherwise see. I obviously misunderstood the description but I was expecting some of the tour to be underground so was a little disappointed because I kept waiting to see under the castle, which some of the tours in Edinburgh are.
Our tour guide, Edward was very funny and so as his team mate! We gave 4 stars as there was lack of ghost! Brilliant and funny way to spend our 90 minutes in Edinburgh!
Tour was entertaining with the tour guide providing a nice balance between humour and accurate knowledge of the local history of the visited locations. The history of the locations was added to by the tour guide interacting with the group when explaining the history.
