Mercat Tours

Around this time, the spirits are scarier, the vaults are spookier and our guides are more demonic than ever, ready to take you on an unforgettable journey into Edinburgh's ghostly underworld.

Each year, thousands join Mercat Tours’ haunted celebrations at Hallowe’en. They come to us because they know that we are:

  • guarantee limited group size and scheduled departures
  • the original, the biggest and the best ghost tour company in Edinburgh
  • the only VisitScotland 5 star walking tour company in Edinburgh
  • have exclusive access to the Blair Street Underground Vaults - featured in Living TV's 'Most Haunted' and described by BBC News as 'probably the most haunted place in Britain.

But on Hallowe'en it gets even better - we are joined by our gruesome costumed characters as they lurk at the Mercat Cross distributing sweets to the lucky ones! We won't mention what they do to the unlucky ones...

We run a variety of different tours to suit different ages and expectations from afternoon through to the very darkest hours before midnight. Whether you are a brave soul or a scardey cat, we have a tour to help you get into the spirit of Hallowe'en.

Whichever tour you choose, expect blood curdling guides, Hallowe'en treats and of course, the unexpected!

Come along to our thrilling and entertaining Hallowe'en festival in October 2015. Our guides and ghosts are awaiting your pleasure...
