Mercat Walking Tours


Mercat Walking Tours review Rate it

The longest established and most professional of all the companies prides itself on historical accuracy. Don't expect a lecture, though: the black-cloaked guides feed
the customers a grisly portrait of Old Edinburgh. Mercat's walks pass through the extensive Underground Vaults. The earlier tours are less sinister than those staged in the evenings.
