We did the tour on our first night in Edinburgh at 9:30pm in the pouring, freezing rain. It added great atmosphere to the tour... Our guide Rory was wonderful - he really got into character at each spot and gave a performance, the group was really involved which helped too. Between spots he was really friendly chatting to the group and offering advice and knowledge.
Highly recommended! :-)

John was a great guide with a great way of bringing the stories alive. Can't believe the tour is 'free'.. definitely worth a good tip. Would recommend!

The guide is a geniuniely sympathetic guy with a pleasant way of speaking and some interesting, if slightly exaggerated stories. Really liked the bit about the industrial scale grave robbing.

Charlotte was our guide and did so with enthusiasm and exceptional story telling. The tour covers nooks and crannies of Edinburgh's dark history, touching the tip of the grimy iceberg that makes up this historic city's dirty underbelly. I highly recommend this is you like a stroll, sights and stories that will make your flesh crawl.
