The tour guide was amazing, very informative and interactive. Glad we did it at night made it a bit more spooky especially in the graveyard. Learnt so much about the different area's we visited and also the other information about places while we were walking from one place to another.

Darren was great at telling us all about the history of Edinburgh and its dark stories whilst also making us jump a few time, my partner and I had an absolute cracking time and when we where in the vaults I even felt something grab my hand which scared us all

It was a nice informative tour around the Edinburgh graveyards and vaults. The tour guide was nice and well-humored. The tour ended with a visit to a small museum containing various items from the 1700 period. Definitely a great value for money. Although the tour was excellent, we as a group were hoping for haunted stories. Would recommend the normal tour.
