Full description
Enjoy a theatrical sightseeing tour of Edinburgh on board the 60-minute Ghost Bus, a beautifully refurbished vintage double-decker, painted in traditional midnight black.

Your creepy conductor will tell you about Edinburgh’s grave robbers, plague victims, and the ghosts that reside in the most haunted city in Europe. Explore the city's gruesome past, while admiring the its most famous monuments, including Edinburgh Castle, Grassmarket, Greyfriar's Kirk, Holyrood Palace and the Royal Mile.

As you traverse the Old Town and New Town, visit the sites of murders, tortures and executions. Hear about the infamous Burke and Hare, and the hundreds of women who were drowned or burned as witches.

The bus, which belonged to the Necropolis Bus Company, boasts decorative features that include atmospheric lamps and window curtains. In 1967, the entire fleet was destroyed in a mysterious fire, and only one bus survived. Will you?
