What people are saying about Canongate Graveyard
This was an eye opener! Our tour guide was fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining. He had a red beard and pony tail. I should have remembered his name but it’s not my strongest character trait. We walked through cemeteries and learned about some of the very unsavory practices that went on years ago. We Also learned the origins of many sayings... such as ‘A stiff drink’ and the ‘The Graveyard Shift’. We then walked uphill to a magnificent view of the city and learned about the persecution of many ‘accused’ witches. I would not have faired well having both red hair and a large birthmark on my back. A very scary thought indeed. We then saw some unfinished architecture (which I preferred that way). Our tour guide was FANTASTIC! It was a throwback of yesteryear in the Old Town of Edinburgh. I highly recommend this tour..,, just wear your walking shoes!
I would highly recommend this tour, our guide was so friendly, introduced herself to every small group of people asking where they were from and if they were having a lovely holiday, which I thought was a lovely touch. Stephanie was a great story teller and made the whole tour fun and fascinating. We did the 8.30pm tour which added a little more atmosphere to it.
We were lucky enough to have a clear night and perfect...if cold...weather for this wonderfully entertaining night time walk on the dark side of Edinburgh. Especially enjoyed the view over the city from the top of Calton Hill. Our guide, Keith, was funny and knowledgeable
We had great fun with our guide Greg. His historical knowledge and entertaining story telling was top notch. We visited places in Edinburgh we would probably never have known about and in doing so learnt more about this great cities history.
Brilliant tour, Lauren and Karis were great fun and really played their parts well. Can’t be helped, but the sounds of Minnie the moocher and Nina Simone did kill the eerie vibe in the vaults. But overall I would recommend this tour.
