Agnes (Natalie) our tour guide was very knowledgeable and made it an unforgettable experience. The vaults were absolutely amazing and Agnes really bought the tales to life. would highly recommend.
Date of experience: October 2020
Hellish Nel our guide did a fantastic job of keeping us all entertained. There were ten of us in the group and we all really enjoyed it! Fascinating facts and gory tales throughout. We thought the vaults section was going to be a bit more extensive, but we’re suitably spooked.
Booked the tour randomly while walking down the royal mile, at only £12 a head we weren’t expecting much but it was something to do. We were pleasantly surprised!! Our tour guide was Agnes, she did a wonderful job, in a post lockdown world with a small group of only 5 people…
Hellish Nell was and excellent guide her historic knowledge of the area and the gruesome tales made an excellent and creepy tour. We did not see any ghosts but came away with a better understanding and respect for the people who lived in Edinburgh in the medieval period.
