Dare you descent...?

Walking activity in Edinburgh

1/4

We offer entertaining and professional underground ghost tours, history tours and walking tours in Edinburgh.

The ghost guides will share with you Edinburgh’s darkest stories, the curious, the uncanny and the terrifying.

Every City is full of secrets, Edinburgh is no exception.

You might be lucky to get on a tour with the first individual who took tour groups into Edinburgh’s underground vaults, over 20 years ago. These tours proved so popular that they lead to many other companies and individuals setting up similar underground Ghost tour companies.

 

We pride ourselves however on offering the original and oldest underground Ghost tour. As well as the first underground tour guide, he is also a published historian and professional stand-up comedian, meaning that the tours he has written are both historically factual and both hilarious and entertaining.

 

You will get exclusive access to the vaults and you will have access to the only vaults with a window fitted onto the roof – meaning you can literally see people walk over you!

There are 8 Underground Ghost Tours running every day of the year. With tours in both Spanish & English, with more language tours on the way.

All of the tours begin at our Police Box on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile.
