Afternoon Underground Ghost Tour in Edinburgh

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Greet your costumed guide at a central Edinburgh spot in the early afternoon. Immediately, your ghoulish guide will launch into spine-chilling tales from Edinburgh’s dark history. Stroll around some of the Old Town’s narrow streets, many of which are shrouded in both shadow and legend.

    Listen to commentary that combine humor with haunting history as you descend to Edinburgh’s underground vaults, famed for their terrifying atmosphere and countless ghosts. Keep your eyes peeled for restless residents as you explore the vaults alongside your guide.

    After an hour, emerge from the vaults and bid your guide farewell.

    We did an afternoon Ghost tour with James Douglas today, we weren’t sure what to expect, James was entertaining and a excellent tour guide. I would highly recommend this Ghost tour. It was an hour long. He made us laugh. We were disappointed not to see any ghosts, maybe next

    We were taken round the Old Town by our wonderful guide Mary Pattinson (Caitlin), who confidently and articulately explained the spooky sights. She engaged the audience well and fitted lots of interesting facts into the hour - definitely learned something new and would recommend.
