Excellent guided tour - both educational and eerie! Patrice, our tour guide, was very friendly, knowledgeable & theatrical, without being over the top. The whole tour felt very authentic. I really felt the atmosphere as we were told the stories of the vaults & I genuinely believed that I could see a ghost during the tour - we were told about a few which have been commonly sighted. The history of the South Bridge & vaults was very interesting & Patrice was an excellent story teller. We were a small group (probably due to Covid, as this is usually an extremely popular activity) & this added to the eerieness. None of Patrice's enthusiasm for the subject was lost due to having less people - her enjoyment of her job & respect for the history of the vaults was clear. The 10pm tour was excellent and just the right amount of time at 75 minutes. Patrice also encouraged questions at the end & was happy to share her experiences. Highly recommended, 5* experience!
My boyfriend and I went on the Late Night Underground Vaults Terror Tour last night and couldn't recommend it enough. We were lucky to have Patrice as our guide, she was engaging, funny, informative and friendly (she really made the experience). The tour offered a variety of experiences - the above ground tour/stories, the torture exhibition and the vaults themselves (which were very creepy). The 75 mins flew by and it was a fab addition to our Edinburgh holiday! Definitely worth the price and I would do it again with friends/family.
This was such a thorough tour, and definitely worth it! It was awesome to walk around and see the historical structures and to hear all the stories behind it all. Alana was so great and didnt skip a beat. She was very kind and informative! Every question I had, she had an answer to. I learned so much more than if I were to have toured the city on my own. Great tour! Totally recommend!
It is a two hour tour with an extremely well informed and helpful guide. Gwen went over and above what we had hoped she would tell us about. Lots of gems of information from a passionate Edinburgh born and bred lady. Thank you.
The tour was good fun with a few spooks, while at the same time being very informative - would definitely recommend for something a bit different.
