Real Fear Tour

Experience the world’s most haunted city on a ghost tour of Edinburgh and be spooked by one of the city’s most infamous sons as they lead you around the dark side of the Old Town. Discover the hidden wynds (alleys) off the Royal Mile and hear some of Edinburgh’s horrifying secrets.

Then, visit what is regarded as the most haunted graveyard in the world at “Greyfriars Kirkyard.” Finally, go deep underground and explore the Edinburgh Vaults beneath the streets. Completed in 1788, the series of chambers were used to house taverns and as storage space for illicit material, including the bodies of people killed by serial killers Burke and Hare for their medical experiments.

Journey through over 400 years of history and hear terrifying true tales of hangings, torture, murders and witchcraft. Shiver at the weird noises and unexplained smells that make an appearance after dark!

“James is a great story teller and very engaging. Not only was I scared, I learned A LOT as well. The tour highlights in the graveyard and underground were creepy and beautiful as desired. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I also enjoyed the pub recommendation at the end as well. 😉 Thanks for a great evening!” – Maresa Edwards
