A little theatrical in the beginning. My favourite part was below in the vault. I’ve never seen anything like it before. Very informative and scary. A couple days later my friend showed me a picture she took. Have a look.

We had a very entertaining and funny guide for our Haunted Underground tour of the Edinburgh Vaults. He helped to lighten the atmosphere, and to be honest nothing particularly supernatural happened while we were down there. I would recommend as something fun to do in Edinburgh which lasts about 1 hour 15 mins.

The tour was good fun and the guides friendly and personable. The only comment I would make was that on starting the tour there should be a marker or identifier of the tour group as there are many different tour groups that meet in the same place, so it's not always clear what group you're joining. We joined the wrong one initially but eventually caught up with the group that we were supposed to be with!

I loved this tour with Naomi! She was a great story teller, clearly loved the books and the Outlander series and knew her material well! I would definitely recommend her tour to any Outlander lovers or anyone interested in learning more about the Jacobite rebellion.
