We did the Doomed, Dead, and Buried tour which goes into the Blair Street Underground Vaults. Our guide was funny and dramatic. We learned some Edinburgh history in addition to the more ghostly and ghoulish stories.

Our passion for Edinburgh's history runs deep and it lies at the heart of each of our tours- even the spookier ones!. We're glad you enjoyed the blend of learning whilst hearing the stories. Thanks for the review

Ghostly Underground tour with tour guide Ruth.

Excellent tour with funny and entertaining Ruth. She was brilliant and we all entered into the ‘spirit’ of the tour.

Fully recommend the tour and learnt lots about the vaults.

We're so glad you enjoyed your tour and that Ruth was fun whilst teaching you some of Edinburgh's dark history, it sounds like your whole group got into the experience, which is what we strive for at Mercat. Thanks for taking the time to review us and recommending the tour to others.
