I don't know if this was the tour that I went on, but it sounds like it, it had that kind of name anyway, all down into dark cavernous areas, really enjoyed and was taken around by a very informative young lady, who albeit rather buttered on with dread was a charming guide. Thank you.

Don't waste your time and money! I can find nothing positive to say about this! The last part down dark spiral stairs could really be dangerous.

After booking our tickets online myself and a group of friends waited for around 15 minutes, and no tour guide showed up. We were then informed by another tour company that Edinburgh Horror tours had been closed for over a year, however their website is completely active and does not state anywhere whatsoever that the tours do not run anymore,...

I cannot say how disapointed I was when I turned up with several friends to their sign on the Royal Mile in December to go on their Ghost Hunt tour to find no one from the tour company there.

We turned up for this tour 15 minutes before it was due to begin. Waited half an hour and no tour guide turned up. Wish I'd checked tripadvisor before attempting to go with this tour. There's a multitude of ghost tours in Edinburgh that are happy to take you around this beautiful city, and treat their customers a lot better.... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
