“We really enjoyed it”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Düsseldorf, Germany on April 27th, 2013 We really enjoyed the tour and had a lot of fun with our guide. Thank you!
“wonderful to see all the places”
Reviewed by Anne from Leipzig, Germany on February 19th, 2013 nothing todeclare. thank you!
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Berikon, Switzerland on October 11th, 2012 Great. You get so much background knowledge. Very interesting and impressive. A sightseeing tour at the same time. We went to such great places we'd never have found without the tour. Our guide William was really pleasant and polite and just a really nice guy. I'd go with him again any day, or do the Harry Potter tour.
“too little time for such distances”
Reviewed by Robert from Wien, Austria on August 25th, 2012 too little time for such distances
“Legendary!! 2.5 hours with Will, we saw so much!!”
Reviewed by Melanie from Nienburg, Germany on August 14th, 2012 We had a real London boy as a tour guide. Will ran about 3 hours through a "quite busy" London (olympics) holding a magic wand in front of us and showed us a lot of Harry potter locations… The climax was the platform 9 3/4. My son and I loved this tour!! You don't only see a lot of "Harry Potter" but also you get the chance to ask a real insider all you ever wanted to know about London. We especially liked Will's I-Pad, with which he showed us all the film scenes or photos. This tour was really worth it!!!! GREAT Will!!!!!
“Would love to go again, everything was excellent”
Reviewed by Christina from Bad Homburg, Germany on July 20th, 2012 Our guide was very engaging and did a great job leading the tour. There were roughly 15-20 people in our group, and all of us could see and hear everything clearly. Would love to come again
“Interesting and a great way to see london”
Reviewed by Lisa from Willenhall, United Kingdom on April 7th, 2012 From the booking of this tour, the staff were excellent. We had to change our date and they couldn't do enough to help us! On the tour, the guide was enthusiastic and funny. He too loved Harry potter. We saw many sights and places we wouldn't have gone otherwise and saw different sides of the city apart from the palace and Oxford street. It's a full 2 1/2 hour walk with a boat and tube trip so wear comfy shoes! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and can't wait to visit Warner bros studio next month.
“Good tour, interesting and informative”
Reviewed by Sonja from Taunusstein, Germany on April 6th, 2012 The tour started punctually. From the first film to the last, we saw many things relevant to Harry by foot. Our guide put everything across in a funny and informative manner.
“An excellent experience all round. Highly recommended!”
Reviewed by Gordon from Saskatoon, Canada on March 28th, 2012 An excellent experience all round. Highly recommended!
“Good but would have liked more Harry Potter info.”
Reviewed by Chelsea from Loughborough, United Kingdom on March 28th, 2012 Lots of fun and informative but being from London originally I would have preferred less general London info and more Harry Potter info as this is what the tour title and website emailed.
Reviewed by RACHEL from COLCHESTER, United Kingdom on March 21st, 2012 Our tour guide Will was very friendly and informative about Harry Potter aswell as interesting history facts about London!
Beware lots of walking involved!
“Amazing tour, better tour guide!!”
Reviewed by OLIVER from Northampton, United Kingdom on March 7th, 2012 Was the best tour I've ever been on, the tour guide was very knowledgable and extremely funny and it was his professionalism that made the day worth it, even though it was raining, good tour, amazing tour guide! Would definitely go again or recommend it to friends, especially if the same tour guide was taking it.
“Very good tour with a great guide who made the walk very interesting”
Reviewed by Lesley from Middlesex, United Kingdom on January 15th, 2012 Very good all round tour, very informative.
“Pretty interesting for HP fans.”
Reviewed by Rainer from Werther, Germany on November 5th, 2011 Interesting for HP fans. A further tour would have been even better, but wasn’t on offer at the time of our trip.
“Not what you’d expect.”
Reviewed by Marion from Recklinghausen, Germany on October 29th, 2011 Sadly the Harry Potter tour we booked for october didn't match the description. Instead of the small group we'd expected (10 people max.), there were soon about 50 participants waiting at the meting point, who were then constantly interrogated on their entitlement to participate, before the tour could finally begin 20 minutes later. Before that we'd been informed that the originally booked tour for our presentation was actually fully-booked and would have to take place on the following day. We were then rushed to the scene in 2.5 hours, instead of 3 like in the description, by our tour guide Becky, who was a little overwhelmed and didn't take care if participants were accredited or if some were lagging behind. The group had got noticeably smaller by the end. Her explanations were poor, and were accompanied by badly-taken screenshots.
“Good tour. Way too many participants!”
Reviewed by Karin from Duesseldorf, Germany on October 28th, 2011 The tour itself and the guide were great! But the amount of participants was a real down-side - in the description it said max. 10 participants, but in reality there were 58!
“Everything as booked”
Reviewed by Ronald from Ahrensburg, Germany on October 23rd, 2011 Of the three tours we'd booked, this was the only one that worked completely. The guide was a young student called Becky. Anyone booking this should have a fairly good grasp of the story of books 1 to 6, because you don't get any extra help with that. We found the finish with Platform 9 3/4 disappointing. It could just as well be at the station in "Hicksville" - but of course that's a matter of taste. So everyone can judge it for themselves. As I said, this was the only one of the three tours we'd booked which delivered what was described!!
“The tour was very informative!”
Reviewed by Patrick from Basel, Switzerland on October 17th, 2011 The Harry Potter tour was very informative. It took too long to get to the last part of the tour (Platform 9 3/4) on the underground. The tour guide was very nice and friendly too.
“Locations ok, guide not particularly entertaining”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Bern, Switzerland on October 15th, 2011 .
“A walk for Harry Potter fans indeed!”
Reviewed by Linda Maria from Eisenstadt, Austria on September 21st, 2011 I had a really enjoyable time on this trip. We could travel to nearly every place by foot and it was very entertaining from beginning to end. We had a really great guide and nice weather, - so there was left nothing to be desired...
“Very nice and interesting, professional guide!”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Kolsassberg, Austria on September 3rd, 2011 We liked it very much, the guide was great.
“for harry potter fans very interesting and gives informations.”
Reviewed by Terke from Wolfratshausen, Germany on September 1st, 2011 very good
“A must for any Harry Potter Fan”
Reviewed by Bettina from Voitsberg, Austria on August 6th, 2011 It is a realy cool walk and the guide realy knows what he is talking about.
You get a lots of Information from Harry Potter and the Places where they were made it.
Do this again at any Time!
“It was great and interesting.”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Backnang, Germany on June 28th, 2011 Was fun
“Sehr netter, kompetenter und informativer Guide!”
Reviewed by Petra from Dortmund, Germany on May 14th, 2013 War lustig!
“Hätten wir die Gruppe nicht verloren, wäre es sicher super gewesen”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Marburg, Germany on April 3rd, 2013 Der Treffpunkt war dank Google ganz gut zu finden, dort warteten wir bis sich eine Menschentraube versammelt hatte und die Guides nachfragten, ob alle wegen der Harry Potter Tour da sind. Jeder wurde abgehakt und wir wurden in 2 Gruppen aufgeteilt. Zu Fuß ging es an verschiedene Orte der Filme und nach einer Fahrt auf der Themse liefen wir über den Borough Market. Dort war so viel los, dass wir die Gruppe verloren und nicht mehr wiederfanden. Da wir die anderen Orte nicht kannten, fuhren wir direkt zu King's Cross und trafen die Gruppe wieder. Unser Guide war sehr verständnisvoll und entschuldigte sich mehrmals und bot an, dass wir den Veranstalter nach einer Rückerstattung zu fragen.
Es war nur sehr schade, dass wir die hälfte der Tour verpasst hatten...
“abwechslungsreich, informativ, sehr netter guide mit lauter Stimme”
Reviewed by Margaretha from Berlin, Germany on April 2nd, 2013 alles super! Doch würde ich mich freuen, da meine Tochter und ich (noch) nicht alles in Englisch
verstehen, wenn es die Möglichkeit gäbe, in einer Art Skript (oder Film) - gerne in Englisch - die
wichtigsten Stationen nachlesen oder nachschauen zu können.
Habe Ähnliches auf You tube gefunden, aber eben nicht genau diese Tour
“Tolle Tour, man sollte gut zu Fuß sein, wir hatten viel Spaß.”
Reviewed by Norman from Niedernhausen, Germany on April 1st, 2013 Meine Frau und mein Sohn sind Harry Potter Fans und fanden es klasse. Ich bins nicht, fand die Tour aber trotzdem super weil kurzweilig, unterhaltsam und sehr gut vorgetragen. Joe war unser Führer und er hats klasse gemacht. Unser Sohnemann ist 12 und des Englischen noch nicht ganz mächtig, wir haben immer übersetzt, man sollte also recht fit im Englischen sein. Schauts Euch an, macht Spaß und man kommt ein wenig in London rum :)
“lohnt sich auf jeden Fall”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Billerbeck, Germany on November 6th, 2012 man muß fußfest sein, der Gard legt ein ordentliches Tempo vor. Am Treffpunkt warten, nicht am Häuschen nachfragen, daß ist ein Anderes Unternehmen, die sind dort sehr unfreundlich und schicken einen weg. Wir hätten die Tour deswegen beinahe verpaßt.
Der Tourgard war richtig gut, sehr viele nützliche Informateionen erhalten. ich würde diese Tour nochmal buchen....
“Hat uns und unseren Kindern sehr gut gefallen”
Reviewed by Norbert from Schwanenstadt, Austria on October 31st, 2012 War sehr interessant, man lernt gleichzeitig auch London besser kennen - kommt an Plätze wo man so nicht hinkommt. Guide war sehr gut vorbereitet und hat die Führung sehr professionell durchgeführt.
