Such a great tour, thought we’d have to give it a miss due to low numbers but he gave us a private tour and regaled us with spooky stories and terrifying tales, would recommend to others without question!

Excellent free talk. Our guide Graham was great and was a nice contrast to other tours as he was able to put his personal stamp on the tour, including his personal research interests and experiences. He also concentrated on the history and less of the theatrics which was nice.

Graeme was fantastic! The tour was informative, spooky, and entertaining. I especially appreciated the care taken to give other tours (of which there were many because of Halloween) space so he was never had to shout over another guide.

Having arrived in Ebinburgh this afternoon from London (and in the absence of more usual Scottish pastimes, such as refreshing in a pub), this was a wonderfully esoteric introduction to the city's lesser-known and darker delights. The macabre and occasionally ghostly tales were captivating, and expertly delivered by Zenon with a really satisfying level of historical detail and enchanting architectural loci and backdrops. To finish in the graveyard where body snatchers prowled, and where, nearby, Burke and Hare, conducted their murderous campaign, was a fitting end - with an especially creepy story about a sadistic poltergeist that still leaves his mark ... My only criticism-actually more of a suggestion - would be a printed handout of the many historical characters mentioned, allowing attendees to research and investigate them further. But all in all a really enjoyable, memorable experience!
