For a deathly creepy ghost tour, you need a great guide. Join your terrifying conductor aboard a vintage Routemaster double-decker bus for an Edinburgh ghost tour with a difference. As you travel past eerie sights like Grassmarket, the Royal Mile, Greyfriars Kirk, and Edinburgh Castle, thrill to gory anecdotes from the city’s chilling past.

What to Expect

As night falls, board the bus in central Edinburgh and pick a seat. As you ride through the streets, let your conductor transport you to the city’s dark side. Hear tales of murder, slaughter, torture, and ghosts; shiver at the story of Burke and Hare, gravediggers who turned serial killers to feed medical schools’ desire for fresh corpses; tremble at the memories of the witch hunts in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Learn a different, darker side of this historic city as you pass haunted sites like Greyfriars Kirk, Grassmarket, Edinburgh Castle, and the Palace of Holyroodhouse. You’ll finish in Edinburgh Old Town with plenty of time for a warming whisky at a local pub.

Great fun!

The whole family really enjoyed the ghost bus tour. Our tour guide AWOL was very funny and also extremely informative. We learned a lot about Edinburgh as well as some great ghost stories. Very entertaining and a fab way of celebrating for daughter's 11th birthday!

Please don't expect a serious fact filled tour of Edinburgh because you wont get it & if you aren't willing to belly laugh in public at nonsensical craziness fro the entertainers, then just don't bother. This is a show, a fantastic rib tickling show where...More

What a fun tour

We went on this last night. The conductor AWOL was very funny and did a good job of keeping everyone entertained. Getting off the bus in the grave yard was great for atmosphere.

Highly Recommended Ghost Bus Tour of Edinburgh

My wife and I went on this hour long Ghost Bus Tour, and had a great time. The information and stories were very interesting, and combined a mix of eeriness and humor along the way that's appropriate for some older kids and adults. The tour...More
