Very good fun and informative session. Guide was very involved and had a lot of fun. Vaults were very cool to see, although you only get to see a few rooms. Worth it if youre looking for something to do one evening.
Your tour begins in central Edinburgh, where you’ll greet your guide and wind your way through the backstreets of the Old Town. Listen to tales of supernatural history, documented hauntings, and ghostly apparitions, and visit sites of hangings and reported paranormal activity.
