What you'll do

IMPORTANT; Due to high demand, we will mainly be doing private tours this month. Please request the time and date you would like.

Other versions are available on request for private-bookings, such as;

1 hour
kid-friendly
45-minute

This tour is brilliant for team building, friend groups and solo travellers.

Join David and Eden through Edinburgh's grizzly past. From gruesome murders and executions to urban legends and hauntings. This virtual tour turns the streets of Edinburgh into a dark video game while still keeping the history intact. Your attention will be tested as you answer questions to collect points.

We'll be exploring some of Edinburgh's most iconic sites such as;

Edinburgh's Underground Vaults
The Royal Mile
Edinburgh Castle (which includes the dungeons)
Greyfriars Kirk.

Each level has two points to be collected through multiple-choice questions. Pay close attention to the host's stories as they hold the answers. Once an answer has been voted on, if the victims are right, they get the point. If they are wrong, they'll see what happens >:).

The stories included on this tour are;

The ghosts of Edinburgh Castle
The Scottish Witch Trials
The Black Dinner
The Covenanters Prison
The Body Snatchers
The serial killer's Burke and Hare
and much, much more.

David

I have been a tour guide in Edinburgh for 8 years, doing walking tours of the Old Town, Castle tours, Horror tours, and Harry Potter Tours.

I always loved running the horror tour! Edinburgh has an amazing dark history I wish to share with you all.

Fun Fact; I have encountered some of the ghosts mentioned on the tour.

Eden

Half French and half English, I have grown up with a love for folklore stories, art and culture. What can I say, Edinburgh has it all!

Studying contemporary art, I spend a lot of time discussing the new, the possible. This said, I like to change things from time to time… so, embark on the tour for a jump back in time to hear all about the dark and hidden gems of Edinburgh’s history!

Fun Fact: I live opposite the cemetery where Mary Shelley’s grave is.

Our team participated in David's event and really enjoyed the story telling. It was a fun event for them to work together to get the answers right. Everyone spoke highly about it! Thank you David!

Great fun! Wonderful stories, and we enjoyed David’s unique approach to the virtual tour and keeping us all engaged and on our toes. This would be fun for older kids as well, so it’s a fun family option as well as good fun for work groups. We’re already making note of other tours David offers for future events.

Such a fun experience for colleagues or friends! We had a great time. The virtual settings that David has created and the way they look like you are in a video game is so fun!

We asked him to host an event for our company gathering (online). He totally exceeded the expectation! Everybody in our team engaged with him and had a great time on Friday. Thanks!

Our team at work had the best time with David on this ghost tour! It was interactive, entertaining, and great for team bonding. This was our first team event and half of us have still never met in person due to COVID. We really enjoyed getting time together outside of work and having this fun experience! Thank you!!
