Loved how the staff kept in character throughout. The cannibal girl was fantastic. Great laugh especially when they got the audience involved.

Might be too frightening for young children! Actors and set designs are brill. Maybe go if it's raining.

Booked saver tickets online and saved money on the guidebook. From the beginning till the end of the tour, the actors were entertaining and effective. It's great that the actors actively call out people to join the act . I will definitely remember the stories...More

This activity took us almost 2 hours to get through. It was interactive, involved excellent role playing by the staff and was fun. We experienced a few mock trials where audience members were the "victims". The experience wasn't super scary though I would avoid bringing...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

Edinburgh dungeon is well worth a visit. The drop ride is optional but it is fun. Basically, you sit in one long row, pull down the safety harness. The row of seats are raised about 30 feet and a quick bit of dialogue about... More
