Spine tingling tour but very interesting

Booked the vaults tour as we were visiting Edinburgh and it’s something I’ve always wanted to experience. We were met by our tour guide who took us to the start of the tour. Before we even started we were met by a young boy who was outside looking very white. Think that in itself made us all nervous to what was behind the door as he was on the tour before us. Our guide was very informative and made the tour both scary and interesting. Awful to see how people lived in those days and you could understand how people died in such close proximity. It was difficult to see where you were going and the air was thin so not ideal for people with walking or breathing difficulties. Took some photos and one showed what looked like an orb but hard to tell really. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in the history of underground Edinburgh or into grisly, gory and spooky tales.

Very informative tour and guide was friendly and knowledgeable.

Would recommend this tour for people visiting Edinburgh to give them a feel of the city in the Early years of it's existence and how hard it was for the early settlers who came to find work in this city and through no fault of their own could fall on hard times and ultimately put their own Iives and family at risk by just being here and not finding work, harsh penalties were dealt out to those who took to crime, or simply were homeless.

It was great tour. It will give you thrills.

We opted for the 8:30pm Underground Vaults tour in Edinburgh. Our guide, Emilia was very well narrating the stories attached to the place and could create an environment wherein you will feel afraid. We didn't see any ghosts but had the thrill. The spooky environment all around and the pitch dark vaults can make you feel that you landed in a haunted place. My 12 year daughter also liked it a lot.

A dramatic, thought-provoking experience.

This is a unique place to explore and the history behind the vaults is fascinating and really well-explained by the guides. The dark is absolute at times and the vaults stark and atmospheric. I was left incredibly affected by the stories of the people who lived and died underground.

Tuesday was a brilliant tour guide and we really enjoyed the vaults!

Tuesday really knew her stuff! The tour was extremely informative and so pleased we went. It was fantastic. I only had one very small criticism and that was the very high step you had to go up to enter. Only just managed it with my very old knees.
