Great wee guide

Fantastic app, extremely informative and easy navigable. The tour is simple to follow and the stories of each location packed with incredible historical facts you might never see or hear in other history books. The narration is witty and charming and keeps you gripped and wanting more.
I got this app to see if I thought it would be worth doing the tour on my trip to Edinburgh next month with the family and I am not disappointed...... We will definitely go along to do the tour in person, but meantime I can read all the history and be prepared for what I think is going to be an amazing experience . Thanks city of the dead tours for this very informative app.

Excellent resource

This is a fantastic app for anyone interested in the history and haunting of Scotland's most iconic city. It outlines 13 sites of paranormal activity across the city and incorporates Google Maps, allowing you to easily navigate the sites on foot. Alternatively, you can visit them as part of the 'City of Dead' tours (highly recommended and the only ghost tour I would attend in the city). The commentary is intelligent, witty and informative and an excellent addition to the app.

Overall, this is an excellent resource for exploring such an intrinsic part of Edinburgh's history - and a steal at 99p!
