What you'll do

This tour is brilliant for team building, friend groups and solo travellers.

Other versions are available on request for private bookings, such as kid-friendly and 45-minute versions.

We also have ' A Christmas Carol' variation available on request.

Join David and Eden through Edinburgh's grizzly past. From gruesome murders and executions to urban legends and hauntings. This virtual tour turns the streets of Edinburgh into a dark video game while still keeping the history intact. Your attention will be tested as you answer questions to collect points.

We'll be exploring some of Edinburgh's most iconic sites such as;

Edinburgh's Underground Vaults
The Royal Mile
Edinburgh Castle
And more!

Each level has two points to be collected through multiple-choice questions. Pay close attention to the host's stories as they hold the answers. Once an answer has been voted on, if the victims are right, they get the point. If they are wrong, they'll see what happens >:).

The stories included on this tour are;

The ghosts of Edinburgh Castle
The Scottish Witch Trials
The Black Dinner
The Covenanters Prison
The Body Snatchers
The serial killer's Burke and Hare
and much, much more.

David

I have been a tour guide in Edinburgh for 8 years, doing walking tours of the Old Town, Castle tours, Horror tours, and Harry Potter Tours.

I always loved running the horror tour! Edinburgh has an amazing dark history I wish to share with you all.

Fun Fact; I have encountered some of the ghosts mentioned on the tour.

Eden

Half French and half English, I have grown up with a love for folklore stories, art and culture. What can I say, Edinburgh has it all!

Studying contemporary art, I spend a lot of time discussing the new, the possible. This said, I like to change things from time to time… so, embark on the tour for a jump back in time to hear all about the dark and hidden gems of Edinburgh’s history!

Fun Fact: I live opposite the cemetery where Mary Shelley’s grave is.

    This was lots of fun. Great stories I hadn’t heard before. Nice job establishing the atmosphere. Looking forward to a time when I can travel again and do something like this in person.
