  • We recently booked a private Double Dead Tour with John as our guide and he was absolutely fantastic! Our very large party had all come from the US for my wedding in Edinburgh, and from start to finish (booking/email communications through the actual tour) our experience was excellent. Charlotte was so kind in accommodating our group, even setting us up with the perfect guide who had a personal connection to our wedding. All her communications were prompt, professional, and friendly, leading up to the actual tour which was brilliant! John was enthralling and everyone loved him, many of our wedding guests saying it was their favorite thing they did in Edinburgh. Go on this tour- you won’t be disappointed! Thanks so much for everything Charlotte and John!
  • Went for the Graveyard tour with our wonderful guide David whose sense of humour really made the tour. He was a natural, very informative and the stories he told weren't overly dramatic or fake. My brother and I enjoyed it very much. We also went on the Underground vault tour with Oscar, who was very entertaining as well! Would highly recommend the tours from this company!!
