Our guide Lara was enthusiastic and quite melodramatic. She told several stories and legends about historic figures and their ghosts haunting the crypts of Edinburgh. It could have moved along a little faster in my opinion, but my daughter loved it and that's what mattered...More

Very good tour, our guide was very enthusiastic and clearly loved what he did. There are 3 different tours but we chose to do the vaults and the graveyard. Unfortunately no ghostly experiences, but you cant be guaranteed. Would highly recommend.

The Mercat Tours ghost hunter tours are fun & educational for just about any age, although at one point my 8 yr old grandson became a bit nervous! The tour guides make the history of Edinburgh spooky, but highly entertaining. In the summer time, it...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
