The Original Underground Tour (Auld Reekie Tours Ltd)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

This reviewer, along with many of those alongside her, was left genuinely shaken by a tour that has no need of gimmicks or actors who jump out at you from dark corners. ‘The Original Underground Tour’ is less a ghost tour than a very interesting historical trip around Edinburgh’s underground vaults…which just happen to be considered haunted by many, and one can see why. During the journey through the damp and gloomy vaults a confident tour guide recounts the dark and bloody history of the place, this, combined with the atmosphere of the surroundings is more than enough to cause even the most sceptical to shiver with fear. Not just educational but really very thrilling.
