Sppoky, scary, creepy....and historical. The guide was very informative and created an atmosphere of a paranormal environment. If you like the supernatural this is a must.

Great guide! He had plenty of stories and was very good at adjusting the content as we had a child in the group. He was great about checking to see how she was doing she wasn't as scared as some of the adults. It was a great experience being in such an unusual historical place, quite a bit different than the castle tour. We didn't see a ghost, but I wouldn't go underground at night alone!

Great and interesting tour. Next time I would probably choose a longer one, since I'm sure there is a lot more to explore in Underground Edinburgh.

It was absolutely terrifying! Yes that's the word best suits this tour. Our guide kept us on toes every sec of the tour. It lasted for 45mins but if it would gone past even for a sec, I would have scared to death. The guide was exceptional and the tour was the best one so far. Worth every penny. This would be by far the most scariest horror walking tour ever! Must try.
