    Dr Knox was a great guide, absolutely enjoyed his sense of humour and vast knowledge about the city and its history. He just has a way with people and I highly recommend him for your night tour. It’s unique and you won’t regret going. Have a friend who’s spooked easily and yet she had such a great time, we were still talking about it the week after.

    A great experience around the old town, cemetery & underground town. my wife Julie took a photo and it turned out to have an orb on it, very bright and next to the fireplace in the underground town. no other light sources around, so no reflection etc. The cemetery was a great walk through with our host Maggie, who was very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable throughout. Finally it was lovely to see the grave of Greyfriars Bobby, and of course we left a stick too... We will be back up soon

    James was a fantastic guide, he made the tour funny and frightening, highly recommend him. The tour itself was ok, expected a bit more from it but I assume due to Covid-19 it’s had adjustments made to it. Overall brilliant experience and definitely an activity you should do if you visit Edinburgh.
