    What to Expect
    Enjoy a terrifying tour around the World's most haunted city aboard the custom-fitted double-deck bus! Tours last for one hour and depart twice each evening from the city-center Waverley Bridge, Bus Stop (WY).  

    On board, your live host will entertain you with tales of Edinburgh's dark history as you tour passes many historic sites. These include Edinburgh Castle, and tales of it's Ghost Piper, the historic Grassmarket, that was the site of many public executions, and the Palace of Holyrood House, once home to Mary Queen of Scots and site of a cold-blooded murder! 

    You will hear tales of the Infamous Body-Snatchers Burke and Hare as you travel through the dim-lit, narrow, cobbled streets of the Old Town and, in the more salubrious surroundings of the New Town, learn of the real Edinburgh character who played inspiration to Robert Luis Stevenson's tale - Jekyll and Hyde. 

    Step into the afterlife at Greyfriars Kirkyard as your guide takes you on a short walk into one of the World's most haunted graveyards in the shadows of Edinburgh Castle! 

    During this bus tour, you will travel through the city on comfort onboard and wheelchair accessible, Haunted History Bus. Over two floors, custom designed vehicle is perfect for enjoying views of the city at night and fully equipped with the latest audio-visual equipment which will bring history alive before your very eyes! 

    This 1-hour tour is not to be missed, for those who are brave enough!

    Absolutely loved this tour!!!! Mel was so so so entertaining and so enthusiastic she made my night. Not so much scary just creepy but totally hilarious and so much fun. Freaked me out the things she said sometimes and the graveyard tour was fun. Definitely worth the £12 we paid
