We'll be in Edinburgh the last week of May. Our 15 year old son thought a walking "ghost tour" sounds like fun. The COTD tour doesn't have people that jump out at you, which is important for me (I'm an assault survivor and I'd probably knock someone out in reaction!).
Their website says to pre-order tickets and pre-book tour date. As we aren't sure just which night we'd want to go (honestly, weather would be a big factor for a nighttime walking tour), what are the chances of showing up at the tour start site and getting tickets?
Also, I'm pretty claustrophobic, would this tour bother me? Can one stay separate from the tour group during the "tight" parts (ie, outside a vault) or do they require "all or nothing"???
We're staying at the Travelodge, at the end of Princes Street. Is this an easy walk to the tour start (it's near Greyfriars Kirk)???
Thanks, in advance, for any help!
