Choose the evening departure time most convenient to you, then step aboard the bus in Edinburgh Old Town and brace yourself for a fearful night of heart-stopping scares. Settle into your seat on the atmospheric vintage double-decker, then set off into the dark heart of Edinburgh.

Listen to your entertaining conductor tell stories that will have you on the edge of your seat. Hear about Scotland’s infamous murders, tortures and hangings, and discover the city’s most haunted locales. Pass by Greyfriars Kirk, where restless spirits are said to walk amongst the gravestones of the cemetery, then drive by the Grassmarket and learn of its bloody history as an execution site.

As you travel, hear true-life tales that will send shivers down your spine, including the story of Edinburgh’s infamous body snatchers Burke and Hare, and the history of the vicious witch hunts of the 16th and 17th centuries.

  • FUN!

  • the guide was funny and the tour very enjoyable.

  • The bus ride was very funny. The guide was very entertaining. Enjoyed that you get out of the bus and walk through a couple of cemeteries. All in all, a fun evening.

  • Actor was very late, didnt seem into his performance. With a different actor it might have been great. The tour staff were awesome in offering alternate nights but unfortunately that one night was all I could attend. Stories were good.

  • this was a fun night...not too scary lots of fun

  • Very entertaining. Lots of information given in a fun way. Edinburgh sure has a lot of ghosts! Definitely recommend this tour.

  • I really hate to give a low rating to this tour because of how much we loved the Ghost Bust tour in London. Unfortunately the substance just wasn't there. Instead of great historical insight to specific locations talking about the real people who lived and died there, it was all just there was a woman or there was a man. It seemed like no real research or effort had been made. With all the great ghost stories throughout Edinburgh surely they could have come up with a couple of names at least.

  • brilliant!

  • The tour was fun. I would have liked it to be longer but I did enjoy it. Particularly getting off the bus too

  • Fun way to spend an evening, give the guys a chance and don't be rude and talk over them!
