    Alex, you made our day (or night, actually). The tour started at 10.30 p.m and Alex made it extremely exciting right from the first seconds. Interesting stories, also lots of jokes to make it less scary. The staff at their office were also high enthusiastic to their roles.

    It was fun and informative. Really enjoyed it. Stephanie our guide was a great story teller and very attentive to the group. Only annoying thing was a group member trying to scare everyone. But the tour can do nothing about that! Would definitely recommend

    Well done Stephanie you tell a good tale with gusto. Edinburgh’s vaults are very interesting only complaint too many tours down there at the same time. You can hear them over your own guide at times.

    Although the 4.5 hr Drive was tedious, the trip was worth it. Our guide, Stephanie, was vibrant, an amazing storyteller and very warm and welcoming. We visited the underground vaults of Edinburgh and heard tales around other parts of the city, of times gone by. Very interesting
