A fabulously informative and atmospheric experience, plus a great way to escape Edinburgh's winter chill. Loved the Discovery Room at the end.

Booked this trip on first day in Edinburgh. It ended up to be one of the TOP highlights of our trip there. The tour was just long enough - plenty of time in the vaults and so much history delivered in an easy and interesting way to understand. Had a wonderful 3 day trip/visit to the city and beginning with this tour and the history and stories on the city which our guide Lydia I think I have her name correct told helped us to enjoy and understand the city even more. Great tour great experience in vaults and great place to visit.

This tour was also brilliant. It was not what we were expecting. I'd heard all the rumours of course and was expecting a 'tailor made city under the city' but actually we got the history behind how it came about and how it was found. Really very good. I wanted it to be more than it was and I was surprised but in a good way. The icing on the cake was the Fringe was on while we were there so we had a way to round off the tour as well. Brilliant.

Wonderful introduction to real life in Edinburgh during it's dark and mysterious past. Our guide was wonderful in getting the group to really imagine what it might be like back then to live and work in the Vaults. She had an interesting way of presenting the whole picture through what your senses would experience sight, smell, hearing etc, back in the day! The vaults are dark and damp. Candles will illuminate the way, this gives you an even a better prospective of what it would have been like far below the streets of Edinburgh in those days.
This is truly a historical tour not a scary ghost tour.

The vaults were incredible. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the history of not only the city but the vaults as well and answered all questions asked. She was very personable.

Loved this tour! The vaults are so fascinating and our tour guide, Gillian, was awesome. She truly made the tour with her storytelling skills and overall knowledge of the vaults and Edinburgh at large. Even though this tour was just historic and did not really touch on the haunted side of the vaults, it was a little creepy just being down there! Highly recommend this tour - about 75 minutes long and well worth it!
