Learn about the Scottish language and cultural curiosities while laughing your head off. The Mountebank Comedy walk is Edinburgh's only comedy walking tour and the only tour led by a professional local comedian. This is a tour that is both 'hysterical " and 'historical". You will not be bogged down in dates and names, but instead, tell stories that you will hopefully remember and regale your friends and family back home.
Laughs start at the Monkey Barrel Comedy Club in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. Embark on an alternative adventure through the city, combined with a mixture of stand-up comedy and historical storytelling from your local guide. Stops include Mercat Cross, St Giles " Cathedral, Writers " Museum, Edinburgh Castle, and Grassmarket. Lastly, the final stop is Greyfriars Kirkyard steeped in historical significance, gruesome stories of Edinburgh's bodysnatchers, ghosts, Harry Potter and of course Edinburgh's most famous dog Greyfriars Bobby.
The comedian tour guide was hilarious and very informative. Not a boring moment during the entire tour! Travelers got the value of their money and thought the trip was well worth it.
