George the Plague Doctor gave a very interesting and spooky insight into the underground history of Edinburgh, combining classic ghost story scares with unsettling locations and insightful knowledge about the history of the city and some of it's more colourful inhabitants. Would thoroughly recommend.

Our tour guide George the Plague Doctor took us round Edinburgh for our extreme paranormal ghost tour tonight, and it was fantastic! His knowledge of the city was outstanding and he made the experience super interesting! Would totally recommend this and I hope he gives many more tours - he is an asset to your company :-)

My daughter and I enjoyed this tour. It was a great way to get a deeper understanding of what we were looking at. George Rae was a wealth of information and delivered it in an interesting way. I give George Rae 5 stars!
The reason I did not give the tour itself 5 stars, is because the group was very large. George Rae did a great job projecting and keeping the group moving, but with so many people once or twice I got caught behind slow walkers and it was more of a struggle to hear what he was saying (no fault of his own, but the operator who controls the size).
This was not a scary tour by any stretch of the imagination. It was intriguing - to think that I walked the street a few times before the tour and didn't know there was a whole world below. The pace at which we moved was great for me but could be a challenge for those with physical impairments (impacting walking).
