Old Town & Underground Tours

Our Old Town & Underground Tours are walking tours led by a professional guide in full period costume. You will walk around some of Edinburgh’s most historically fascinating Old Town Closes. Our guides will overdose you with historical facts and stories of Edinburgh’s dark past, with the odd bad joke chucked in from time to time.

On a tight budget? Don’t worry – this walking tour is our most affordable and will still scare the living
daylights out of you!

Ghosts, torture, death and horror … Is there any better way to start your evening?

Fun, interesting, great for all the family. Went on tour with my sister and my nephews, wasn’t too scary for the kids and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Stories were interesting, scenery amazing. Would recommend this tour.” – Lorna J
