To the Cemetery, 



Embark on a thrilling adventure with our private haunted  Edinburgh tour designed for kids and parents! Join our friendly guide as they lead you through the historic streets and mysterious corners of Edinburgh's Old Town, filled with fascinating and slightly spooky tales of ghosts and criminals.

Tour Highlights:

  1. Old Town's Royal Mile: Explore hidden alleyways where ghosts are known to share secrets. Wander down the Royal Mile, where mischievous ghosts might play tricks on unsuspecting visitors. Keep an eye out for  laughter and twinkling lights - these charming spirits love to tell tales of their exciting adventures from long ago!

  2. Edinburgh Castle: Will you be able to catch a glimpse of the headless drummer? Do you think you'd be able to climb down the castle's cliffs like the dozen of prisoners who escaped, with only their bed sheets as ropes?

  3. Grassmarket: In the lively Grassmarket, listen to tales of the  playful ghosts who once roamed the area. Some of them even came back to life

  4. Greyfriars Kirkyard: Discover the history of Bobby the dog, and try to connect with his ghost! Sometimes, he'll tell you about the grave robbers who used to walk these alleyways.
