We recently went on this 1 hour tour of the streets in the old part of Edinburgh which included a walking tour of some of the chambers underground. The tour guide Andrew made the walking tour really fun, interesting and engaging. You get to hear about the history, people and other titbits of fun facts (particularly about the constant executions that used to happen back in the day). The chambers were interesting and are a bit spooky and damp. You are shown around a small museum in the chambers which included things like torture instruments! We really enjoyed this tour and recommend it.

You have to go on this, the information Tuesday our tour guide gave us blew my mind on how the poor people lived. She was such a good guide. We even heard what seemed like a woman scream! Which Tuesday couldn’t explain as the only other person in the tunnels was her male colleague?! Get it booked you won’t regret it.
