Our guide Keiran was extremely knowledgeable on the subject tonight. we were the only guests on this tour in very typical wet nasty autumn evening. Kerian was charming and very personable. many laughs this evening and learned a few more things about Edinburgh dark history. A credit to the company and himself.

Mason was friendly and fun, and knew his stuff. But for £20pp, no games or quizzes and only lasting 1 and half hours was a bit disappointing. There were tours for much less money, and seemed to include more! Whoever runs this tour need to up their game.
