Great experience, shame about the large group

Hostess was fab and very much got into her role, shared some interesting information which was great for the beginning of our trip as it really set the scene for the history of Edinburgh. However, we went on a Monday evening and was extremely surprised by the large group who accompanied us, there was 40+ people which on a tour with one speaker caused some issues...if you weren’t at the front you couldn’t hear a thing when in the grave yard, such a shame as we missed a lot of info/stories. Not sure if the day tours are less busy? The vaults were great, went into 2 separate vaults and was really able to grasp the history. Would recommend watching some stuff online just to prepare as we weren’t aware there was poltergeist activity in one of them...my partner wasn’t very comfortable but both felt surprisingly calm. Aside from the large group, definitely would recommend as a must see and experience if visiting!

Very interesting piece of history, but not scary.

Look, I did not expect McKenzie to come and dance for us like a little trained monkey...but having said that. This was not the least unsettling at all, and Greyfriars Kirkyard is really a quiet and cozy place on a late summer evening. As a historical tour however, this was easily worth 5 stars, in particular because of the guide, Charlie from Orkney, who is a gifted storyteller indeed. This has really sparked my interest for similar experiences. Maybe even in my own home town.

Loved this your it was Jumpy, spooky, funny and informative

Amazing tour led by an amazing tour guide, Dr Knox. The tour was very creepy and Dr Knox made us jump and laugh a lot. It was also so interesting giving you information on Edinburgh’s history. We were on a girls weekend away and a few of the girls were nervous about going on a ghost walk but for all of us it turned out to be the highlight of the trip! Highly recommend. Would deffo do it again!!!

Great Tour - very interesting - friendly Guide

The Tour was very interesting and well organised, our Guide Muriel knew the theme and was very friendly, the Quiz was fun with good chosen questions, i only was sorry that you could Not choose the house you wanted but took a Card, what was also fine. Muriel also gave us some more tips for stores to visit etc. so the Tour was entirely really great.

Entertaining and interesting tour with Eddie

Met on time, reasonably small group, Eddie demonstrated good levels of knowledge about Harry Potter and Edinburgh in general. Eddie involved all group members as much as they wanted to be involved, and made this a very enjoyable experience at a good price. Highly recommended.
