Charlotte was our guide and did so with enthusiasm and exceptional story telling. The tour covers nooks and crannies of Edinburgh's dark history, touching the tip of the grimy iceberg that makes up this historic city's dirty underbelly. I highly recommend this is you like a stroll, sights and stories that will make your flesh crawl.

First visit to Edinburgh. We decided to join the free ghost tour (7pm) which John was our guide. We felt at ease within the group, John was very enthusiastic, friendly, informative and clear to hear also animated, which added to the experience. There was no pressure to tip, although he gave an excellent tour of Edinburgh, bringing it alive. Fully recommend. Its available on 144 high street. :)

Was fun and not too scary, the included humor was a nice touch. Charlotte is a great story teller and very friendly. The tour was also educational and fun at the same time and not tiring. I recommend it fully. And hope that you get Charlotte as I’m sure you will enjoy it :)

Glad to have Stephanie as our guide. She described the horrible history and scary stories vividly, getting me goosebumps. Good choice to know more about the dark side of Edinburgh. Highly recommended.
