The World Famous Underground Ghost Tour

778 reviews
At street level, Edinburgh is a peaceful and pretty city—but the subterranean tunnels below tell an entirely different story. On this ghostly walking tour, explore historic sites including Greyfriars Kirkyard and St. Giles’ Cathedral with your enthusiastic guide, and hear chilling tales of murder and revenge. Delve down into underground caverns normally closed to the public, and learn of Edinburgh’s grim and gruesome past.

I've been along the Royal Mile hundreds of times and it never gets old, such a beautiful, safe area to visit! You can't really miss it you're visiting Edinburgh, it's just best to explore all the smaller closes, and streets and just soak up the atmosphere.

A great walk with fabulous views. Edinburgh is an amazing place and the Old Town is quite incredible too. Lots of little places to eat and drink, we were restricted a bit due to C-19. Lots to do outside though so we could stay safe and socially distance. We did a walking tour which I thought was well worth it.

Just wonderful for wandering about and drinking in all the sights. Be warned though you will encounter gentle and not so gentle slopes and possibly a multitude of stairs,
