    City Of The Dead Tour

    Not just a tour. A PHENOMENON.

    The Graveyard tour combines the weirdest history with the wildest stories and wickedest humour around. This tour even has a unique gift shop – located in a graveyard funeral parlour!

    Best of all, City of the Dead has access to the Covenanters Prison and the Black Mausoleum – lair of the world famous Mackenzie Poltergeist .

    An encounter with the poltergeist is the highlight of the tour, with hundreds of people claiming to have been attacked by the enitity. The MacKenzie Poltergeist is now regarded as the best documented supernatural case of all time and the tour has become equally famous – the subject of a book as well as scores of television documentaries, newspaper articles and websites.

    A careful blend of fascinating history and distinctive humour, culminating in a genuinely terrifying experience has made the Graveyard Tour a phenomenon rather than a tour. Read the story of the MacKenzie Poltergeist in the acclaimed book The Ghost That Haunted Itself by Jan Andrew Henderson.
