Great tour with Jenny. Really friendly and very knowledgeable. Would recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in Edinburgh’s dark side.
This virtual tour was a fantastic way to escape your home during covid! Our tour guide Jenny was engaging and funny throughout the event. The stories, pictures and ‘walk’ through town made me excited for the day when we can once again travel
Amazing virtual tour, really informative and would highly recommend. Full of facts and visuals. Jenny was a delight and was always available to take questions from others in the tour

Excellent tour. Jenny did a wonderful job. Strongly recommend! Some great stories and history about beautiful Scotland.
Very knowledgeable and entertaining! Jenny was very engaging and we thought the stories were very interesting. Thank you for the trip to Scotland from our London flat
Very good. The interactive tour guide was very good. I enjoyed the carnivorous cave dwellers tale. We look forward to doing this tour in person once things get back to some sort of normality.
Had an excellent time learning more about the dark secrets of Scotland. I joined wanting to hear stories about witchcraft and now have two more pubs to visit next time I am in Edinburgh. The other stories were very interesting and I didn’t realise there is more to Deacon Brodie than I first thought. Thank you Jenny for being a fantastic guide 🙂
