Tour Information

Tour Details

Overview

Join your costumed guide on a journey into Edinburgh’s grisly past. As you walk through the wynds and closes of Edinburgh's Old Town hear tales of the unsavory characters who once stalked the streets.

What happened during the burning times? What was it like in the Tolbooth prison? Why was Edinburgh in the 1700s filthy, dirty and writhing with disease?

Your guide will then lead you into our exclusive underground network of vaults, still in their original condition with stalactites and stalagmites. Each stone, if it could speak, would echo with some of Edinburgh’s bloodiest and cruel history. In addition to our history laden vaults, you will visit our museum of torture with some instruments from Nuremberg and Bamburg castles in Germany from the late 1500’s and early 1600’s.

  • Fantastic tour, our Guide was brilliant and so knowledgeable. Highly recommend it - and it isn't too scary!

  • My friend who has been to Edinburgh a few times and I booked this tour as a last minute addition to our weekend in Edinburgh, purchasing through the app was easy enough however trying to locate the starting point was very difficult. We asked several locals, google map's and eventually took a taxi and sadly not even the taxi could find it. We went into a bar close by to ask for more directions and came upon a very helpful man who knew the tour guide and proceeded to call them advising we were on our way down. He took us to the corner of the next street where our tour was supposedly waiting but again no sign. After this we sadly gave up. I'm sure the tour itself would have been brilliant if you were lucky enough to find the starting place.

  • Excellent tour guide, spooky atmosphere, would recommend A

  • wish we could have seen more of the vaults.
