Okay so this was definitely a creepy tour. Delving deep into not only the past but Edinburgh's dark underground where history breathes down your neck and slithers down your spine.

Nothing terrifying here. Guide was sweet...gave us a little history...walked a few sidewalks and into a few empty vaults. Spend you money and go to one of the bars in the caves same vault complex. No theatrics here, but could have shown so much more.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2015

It was marketed as a strictly adults only tour but unfortunately there was nothing terrifying, remotely scary or entertaining about this tour. I wouldn't recommend it.
