Haunted Tavern Tour

Edinburgh, United Kingdom
About Haunted Tavern Tour
Edinburgh is a gorgeous city full of creepy alleyways and closes, rich history and unexplained entities. We brave four of the most terrifying taverns in the City where you’ll hear chilling tales of the poor souls still wandering the earth hundreds of years after their untimely demise. Of course, we will be sampling the traditional drinks in every venue we visit, so its not just the paranormal spirts on offer!! Our guides are always knowledgeable, entertaining and always have a risqué tale or two to tell and will be happy to recommend some local or unusual beverages. Be careful though, these ghosts may scare you sober!! This tour meets beside St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile at 7.30pm every night. Places are limited so book online to avoid disappointment.

Im not usually fond of Haunted tours, usually because they require a lot of walking and you rarely see anything truly spooky. But.. This tour got it right. The tour guides are all incredibly friendly people and more importantly, they have vast knowledge about the city and its history. The particular tour we booked took us on a short walk through the old town. We stopped at a few locations along the way to the Caverns and were given some interesting insight on the past ways of life. Once arriving to the caverns you get fully immersed in a surrounding that would give anyone goosebumps. ( if you suffer from claustrophobia I would suggest booking a different tour). If you have a free afternoon and want to learn something interesting as well I highly suggest taking the tour!!!

We signed up for this tour and we're greatly looking forward to it. We met at the specified time with Allan (I hope I got his name right). Due to lack of sign ups unfortunately the actual tour was cancelled and we were fully refunded. Our guide however asked if we would like him to show us a local spot he liked, to which of course we agreed. Well he took us to several different pubs throughout the night and had an extensive knowledge of the city and it's workings. Although he was a complete stranger, he made us feel like we had been friends for years. It is people like him that really put a meaning in true service and customer satisfaction. Even though its not what we had originally signed up for, it was an amazing night and by far the highlight of my trip
