Thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour. Chrystal, our guide, has clearly put a lot of effort into learning about everything Potter related and has also learned a fair bit about Edinburgh’s history to make the tour interesting for all parties. Great idea to have the wee quiz ongoing as well to try and engage younger members of the group. Obviously just now there are issues with masks having to be worn making it difficult to hear and understand sometimes, but that’s certainly not her fault and she did her best to try and be heard above traffic noise and the mask. Would recommend for all Potterheads out there if you have a couple of hours to spare. I must apologise to Chrystal - I thought we couldn’t give tips due to COVID and didn’t hear her say we could or I would certainly have given her a wee something extra.

My ticket gave me access to 3 buses, which I think is necessary to know Edinburgh in depth. The Red bus is without a guide and goes to the Old Town Castle area. The yellow bus, Majestic, goes to the Ocean Terminal and the harbour. Finally, the guided tour is the green bus. Edinburgh is a compact city, but I feel all three buses were necessary to know the town in depth.

Excellent tour, our guide Jenny was excellent. The graveyard and Harry Potter quiz were a great idea. Highly recommend this tour have learnt loads of new Harry Potter facts.
