I found the website, but it looks like you describe. I don't remember the tour being anything like that though.
Mary King's Close
I do remember the guides being in character, but most of the tour was just information about life in Edinburgh 400 years ago. I still don't remember any mention of ghosts. Plagues, yes, but no ghosts.
I remember seeing all the dungeon tours around London, and I stayed away from those. I usually avoid tours altogether actually; three months in Europe and I think I went on two or three.
