Step by Step

Have fun listening to ghost stories, anecdotes and spooky happenings on this Edinburgh ghost bus tour. The tour lasts just over an hour in total, which is plenty of time to learn from your tour guide.

He or she will meet you on the bus and tell you about what he or she is observing at any given moment. You will be able to see all around you thanks to the full view from the first floor of the bus.

You will be driven through the gloomy streets of Edinburgh, where you will learn all about its ghosts, urban legends and mysterious disappearances that are still unsolved to this day.

You'll hear tales from across the ages, for example, discover Burke and Hare, two notorious murderers and grave robbers at the 19th century medical school. In terms of monuments, don't miss Grassmarket where many traitors were hanged and from which the story of Maggie Dickson, the half-hanged woman, emerges.

Not forgetting other great places that are suspected to be haunted such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile or the Palace of Holyroodhouse. At the end of the tour you will be dropped off in the Old Town, from where you can continue exploring the city at your leisure.

    The experience was better than I expected, although it is true that I was a little scared with some of the stories. It was worth the trip, but I doubt I will repeat it in the future.
