See iconic Royal Mile like you've never seen it before, going underground to explore the subterranean labyrinth of Mary King's Close. Led by costumed characters who bring to life Edinburgh during the 17th century, your tour takes you down secret pathways as you learn about the residents who once lived here and the intriguing stories of this mysterious place. Upon arrival at the cobblestone streets of Old Town, descend into the exceptionally well-restored alleys buried beneath the Royal Mile that were opened recently as a tourist attraction. Led by guides in traditional garb depicting one-time close residents, you'll learn the area's haunted past and tales of infamy. Your fascinating day concludes with a guided walk on the famed Royal Mile before you return to port.
