Great 90 minute tour covering a vast area of the old Edinburgh town, with lots of scary stories, tales and jump scares along the way. Wonderful guide named Stephanie who deserves a big shout out for the fun twist she added to the event!

place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
