  • Rating: 5 “Einfach bezaubernd”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Wien, Austria on August 24th, 2014 Rührend, wie die Schauspieler über Ihre Arbeit erzählen. Fantastisch, wie einem die Filmarbeit näher gebracht wird, man lebt echt mit - wow


  • Rating: 5 “A great venue to see the behind the scenes work to produce the movies.”

    Reviewed by Carol from midlothian, United States on August 18th, 2014 The creativity of JK Rowling's mind and the creativity of all who worked to bring her story to life in film is hard to comprehend. I and the teens with me were mesmerized!!!


  • Rating: 3 “Take the train -- the "tour" doesn't add anything”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Springfield, United States on August 14th, 2014 Despite my rating, I want to explain that the Harry Potter tour was excellent! The rating is aimed at the fact that this tour has been paired up with a bus trip as a package. And that is literally all the "package" added -- a bus trip. Our bus trip was a particular nuisance because the air circulation was terrible and a member of our group got motion-sick. But even without that, I truly think it would have been just as easy to take a train to the Studio Tour -- AND we wouldn't have been constrained by the time the bus arrived and left as far as wanting to do other things (have dinner, roam some more at the gift shop, etc.). So if you're interested in the Studio Tour, just go ahead and plan the trip yourself.


  • Rating: 4 “Good for a day out”

    Reviewed by Subarna from Neuilly sur Seine, France on August 13th, 2014 The tour itself was very good and informative. Lot of fun things to do. It was nice to see the actual props from the movie. The Backlot area with the bus, the giant chess pieces and butter beer was also very nice. The souvenir shop was well stocked and offered a huge variety of things to take home.

    Reviewed by Yvette from Healesville, Australia on July 17th, 2014 Just love it all took heaps of photos, it made you appreciate it more!


  • Rating: 4 “A very good experience”

    Reviewed by Dana from Zichron Yaacov, Israel on July 15th, 2014 We traveled to the Harry Potter Studios. The Studios are a must see experience for Harry Potter fans, but even muggles would enjoy them as you realize the amount of creativity and work that went into the making of the movies. I only gave 4 stars because it would have been nice to have air condition in the bus.


  • Rating: 4 “Great day out for Harry Potter fans”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Oslo, Norway on July 9th, 2014 Most Harry Potter fans will enjoy spending time at the studio looking behind the scenes and seeing all the artifacts, costumes, details. You may ride a broom and be a start in your own little movie - a fun souvenir to bring back home (a bit expensive though). Butterbeer and hot dogs for sale ca half way through the tour. Transportation back and forth to the studio in a Harry Potter bus - great.


  • Rating: 5 “A dream comes true.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Stuttgart, Germany on May 5th, 2014 Who has not dreamed about beeing part of the Harry Potter Saga - not only looking at it from the outside. That is the feeling you get, if you visit the studios. You become part of a world, which normally only exisits in books and movies. Our kids loved it and the whole family had lots of fun.


  • Rating: 4 “good”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Harrow, United Kingdom on April 14th, 2014 I didn't like the Bus, it was really tight in there and so my legs did hurt. The tour was nice.
    The booking REconfirmation information I have overlooked the first time I think that's unnecessary.


  • Rating: 5 “Very interesting & joyful experience”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Berlin, Germany on January 14th, 2014 I would recommend it to anyone in any age, if you're not Harry Potter fan you will become one after this tour.
    A great chance to explore the magic behind the movies.
    Booking was easy, and got a confirmation ticket immediately.

    Reviewed by Fabio from ROMA, Italy on January 7th, 2014 Easy to book. Everything's gone well. Very nice tour.

  • Rating: 5 “Awesome”

    Reviewed by Michael from Hamilton, Canada on December 25th, 2013 This was an excellent tour. The number of people in each group are controlled, so its very pleasant to go through the whole studio. Will do this one again !


  • Rating: 4 “The studio visit was cool. The transport was okay.”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Sisseln, Switzerland on July 28th, 2013 The studio visit is a highlight for every Harry Potter fan. The transport was okay, it was a very hot day. The only thing that I didn't think was so good was the information you get there when you check in, nobody really knew what was going on and the staff weren't very helpful. All in all, though, this was a great trip and we'd recommend it.


  • Rating: 5 “Really well organized!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Merseburg, Germany on July 25th, 2013 Really recommend it.


  • Rating: 5 “Simply amazing and overwhelming!”

    Reviewed by Anja from Bremen, Germany on July 20th, 2013 As a visitor to London you should definitely see this. Even if you've got kids. It's really huge.


  • Rating: 5 “A real experience, not just for Harry Potter fans”

    Reviewed by Andreas from Leonding, Austria on July 18th, 2013 The bus ride is ok and definitely better than taking whichever trains you'd have to use to get there, since the ride there only took an hour we got to extend our time there to 3 hours- and you need all 4 hours if you've got the headphones and want to listen to them for each of the stations. This is especially exciting for fans of the films, the kids don't need as much information- for them it's enough that it's a Harry Potter experience. Summary: great for kids (watch out for the gift shop at the end), great for adults, since it's really exciting to see how the films were made, and how the technology changed over the course of filming all 8.


  • Rating: 5 “I highly recommend the tour for families with children age 7plus!”

    Reviewed by Angela from Berlin, Germany on July 10th, 2013 The tour was very interesting. Our child was very happy and so were we. Again please!


  • Rating: 4 “Impressive for all Harry Potter fans.”

    Reviewed by Bettina from Zunzgen, Switzerland on July 7th, 2013 We booked the trip from home. When we got there everything went perfectly, the bus was on time. The trip there takes about an hour and a half due to heavy traffic, getting back in the evening takes an hour. We rented a German audio guide for 4 pounds, it was very informative and impressive.


  • Rating: 5 “Good transport service, and a great tour!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Mainz, Germany on July 4th, 2013 The Golden Tours visitor center in Victoria is easy to find and easy to get to using public transport. The employees there were very friendly and helpful. The bus transport was very comfortable, and we go to Leavsden Studios within 40 minutes. In terms of the tour itself all I have to say is: amazing! Lots of background info, photo opportunities, nice staff. Simply the best!


  • Rating: 3 “average, and the transport was uncomfortable and took getting used to”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Niesky, Germany on June 29th, 2013 All in all the service on the bus was really unfriendly. On the way back we even had to sit on the emergency seat during a traffic jam. This was anything but comfortable. The Warner Brothers studio was fine, since you can choose your own pace and what you want to see.


  • Rating: 5 “Greaaat :)”

    Reviewed by Miriam from Wallenhorst, Germany on June 20th, 2013 It was greaaat. Everything went well. The only thing was that it was hard to find the Golden Tours station. It would be nice if they could describe more precisely where the departure point is. I'd book the tour again :) It was worth it :)


  • Rating: 5 “Amazing, worth it”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from oyonnax, France on June 14th, 2013 The exhibition is very complete and impressive. If you're a HP fan, you'll love it!


  • Rating: 4 “Really worthwhile for all Harry Potter fans!”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Gernsheim, Germany on June 9th, 2013 In terms of the booking: we had booked the tour for the beginning of June, at least that's what the confirmation e-mail said. On the day of we went to Global Tours to register. That's where, to our horror we found out that we had booked for a month earlier, or the beginning of May!!! (there was an error in the system...) The Global Tours staff were very helpful, and thankfully they were able to book us onto a later tour, so that we could go to the studio anyway. So: after you've made your booking you should probably get in touch to find out if the date lasted is correct! In terms of the ride: the ride there on the Harry Potter bus took about an hour and a half due to rush hour traffic (London has endless traffic lights...) The ride back took about an hour. In terms of the tour: here I'd rehash what I said in the blurb at the beginning. Impressive!!! After you arrive by bus you have a good three hours (which are more than enough) to make your way alone. For 4.95 pounds you can rent an a


  • Rating: 5 “Great tour! A must for all Harry Potter fans”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Krefeld, Germany on June 3rd, 2013 A must for Harry Potter fans. The original objects from the films were very nicely set up. Lots of place to look around since only a limited amount of visitors are allowed in at any one time. Lots of making-of facts. However we thought 3.5 hours wasn't long enough. At the end you go to a big souvenir shop with everything your heart desires (whether you need it is another matter). Tip: bring food and drinks with you, since in the outdoor part there's a nice place set up where you can relax, however the food and drinks on offer there aren't exactly a good value.


  • Rating: 2 “Mark important info more clearly on the tickets”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Essen, Germany on June 3rd, 2013 Please make it clearer that the time is printed on the ticket alongside the date you go to the studios. It should be on the ticket from Get your Guide by the departure date, and not on the bottom mixed up with all the other info!
