MOONLIT GRAVESTONES AND HAUNTED 1700″S VAULTS AWAIT YOU!

Your experienced and entertaining guide shall take you to Greyfriars Graveyard, just a 5min walk from our pick up point. The Graveyard is home of the famous Greyfriars Bobby a nice dog.  Greyfriars Bobby was a Skye Terrier who became known in 19th-century Edinburgh for spending 14 years guarding the grave of his owner until he died himself on 14 January 1872. Over the years Bobby had cocked his leg where rotting corpses lay below.

Next the tour takes you to the infamous and haunted Niddry Street underground vaults. Named probably the scariest place in the world! Once home to the destitute, prostitutes, criminals, witches and a hellfire club, and is possessed by something evil that awaits you. Auld Reekie Tours was formed in 1995. Since then we have been offering a wide range of underground and graveyard tours to visitors from all over the world. We are the only tour company that owns its own vaults, having exclusive use of them. Apart from lighting, our vaults have remained mostly unchanged since they were built in the 1700s.
