The World Famous Underground Ghost Tour

787 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.

Value for money. We got to try a few different gins and liqueurs, and learned a heap of history about gin and the distillery. Very enthusiastic and knowledgable staff. Capped off with a goodie bag included at the end, and online discount for 10% off. Great way to spend an hour in Edinburgh.

Attended on 3rd October with guide Allan. Great guided tasting with a charismatic host. Tasted 5 gins neat then with mixer and garnish which were all lovely. Social distancing was well done with bubbles of 2 people at distanced tables. Having attended the tour pre COVID I think they have done a great job, would highly recommend - but if you want a specific date check the website for when the dates will become available and go on first thing in the morning (9am I think is when it opens for bookings) as the slots go fast!

Had a great time at the gin tasting experience! Our host Jenny was very knowledgeable and engaging throughout, taking us through the gin making process as well as the history of where gin comes from and how the variations came into existence! The tasting included 5 gins which were a great mix of strengths and flavours - the staff were very flexible and provided us with a lemonade mixer too (as I'm a bit of a wimp with tonic sometimes!) although, the gin was so nice that I was even tasting it neat! The goody bag and the shop discount was an added bonus, although we only realised when we got back home that we had been given the wrong bottle of gin to what we had asked for - just means we will need to utilise that online discount for more gin! :D

Absolutely loved the gin tasting tour. It was so entertaining and the place is so beautiful inside. You can tell the company have really taken care to ensure safety during the pandemic. Upon arrival we were seated, distanced, on a small table. Set out in front of us was a full drink to start the tour with. Then we got to try 4 fantastic flavours....prepare yourself for the cannonball! Alan was so knowledgeable and really funny, what a lovely guy! The experience is really interactive and of course very delicious for any gin fan. Can’t recommend enough. Thanks for the little goody bag.
