"Do you believe in ghosts? You will soon! Even the most sceptical will feel the sensations of the supernatural on this unmissable after-dark tour that offers rare access to two of the most haunted places in the world. First up are the remains of the underground city where thousands once lived in squalor and misery, where you'll hear sobering tales of their suffering, before moving on to a spine-tingling stroll through Greyfriar's Kirkyard. And this is where things get REALLY interesting. Built in the 1560s, this old cemetery is thought to be home to the angry Mackenzie Poltergeist, considered to be the world's most active spirit. His presence is often felt beyond the padlocked gates of the Covenanter's Prison, a section of the graveyard normally off-limits. Are you brave enough to venture inside...?"

Customer Reviews

"Jamie our tour guide was a fantastic story teller. He set the scene before entering the vaults and gave us an amazing historical account of the city vaults and bridges. With a fab sense of humour, Jamie made us smile throughout his brilliant tour. Thoroughly recommend." Alison H
