We had Fred or Frederick and she was great! Informative and interesting, friendly , funny and warming. The history of the vaults was great and so good my 8 year old wAnted to do the same vaults tour but the ghost one the next day! So we went and booked our second tour with mercat! Worth paying for this tour as Really was well put together.

I was recommended to visit the Edinburgh Vaults while in Scotland and I decided to venture down with Mercat vaults and looking back, I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Ruth was my guide and she was kind, knowledgeable and made the experience absolutely wonderful!

She was happy to answer questions and she got the group into the whole experience by getting them to help with re-enactments! We all had a laugh, a chill and a lesson.

Before venturing into the vaults, remember that Boots is always there and never, ever challenge him! Good luck...

We did the Historic Underground tour with Laura. She has awesome storyteling skills and is very passionate about Edinburgh's history. We learned a lot of things and the vaults were are very interesting place to listen to all those stories. Thanks, Laura!

We really enjoyed this tour. Fred (erique) is an excellent storyteller and we really enjoyed her spooky characterization of the underground cellars that make up so much the history of Edinburgh. Among the pictures I took while in the dimly lit rooms, it appears we had a ghostly additional guest in our group. The image shows what looks very much like a little girl in a nightgown standing behind our tour group. Bonus! :)

The underground vaults tour was very informative and worth the money, it's an interesting story and great chance to see Edinburgh from a different vantage point. Our guide was Fred, she was very good, funny and charismatic and knowledgeable, she led a great tour. They should rename the city Fredinburgh!
It's worth dressing up warm but you probably already are - it was warmer underground out of the wind than it was on the surface. This tour is definitely worth the money.
