Informative and hilarious .

An interesting introduction to Edinburgh life in times gone by. Guide and companion kept it light hearted whilst telling some of the more gruesome occurrences relating to the treatment of witches/murders etc. Folks of all ages from kids to pensioners took part and all seemed to enjoy it though some of those from other countries were somewhat bemused at times. Some expected a more serious approach to the historical facts. Overall, however, everyone seemed to enjoy it and the personalities and humour of the guides were much appreciated.
