Hands down best tour I’ve ever done! Scary enough to feel a bit nervous, not too haunting either. Wonderfully told and presented by Adam Lyal (deceased) and the monk definitely deserves some compliment as well!

Great fun, very informative and useful in understanding the history of Edinburgh. Adam Lyal (deceased) hosts the tour and is instrumental in building the spooky atmosphere. You receive a good book too!

Excellent tour. My children and I loved it. We were very impressed and amused by the 'mad monk' and the tour guide. 75 mins well spent and good value for money.
