Three of us took the Gallows to Graveyard tour on Friday, April 13th. There were only about nine people on the tour in total. That should give you some idea of its popularity. I was looking forward to hearing some spooky tales of old Edinburgh and enjoying my evening but, instead, was given a third-rate comedy act. Alex, our guide, was constantly involving audience members in his “bits”. Unfortunately, I was selected to wear an idiotic yellow hat for half the tour as part of one of his bits. I was tempted to walk off the tour at this point but was pressured into being a “good sport”. There is a thin line between being a good sport and being made a fool. This tour was definitely the low point of my nine day visit to Scotland. I will never take a Mercat Tour again or recommend them to anyone. Note to Mercat Tours: making fools of your customers isn’t the best business practice.
