A very comprehensive and engaging tour; it felt like we got to see a lot and our guide, Kristel, was very knowledgeable about the local area - not just about Harry Potter related things! The quiz was good fun and got us chatting with the other people on the tour which was a really nice bonus. We probably could have done with a little break mid-way through as it was a very hot and sunny day, so an opportunity to get some water or have a sit down in the shade for ten minutes would have been a welcome addition.

Our guide was Amy. Overall it was a nice tour in which she explained many interesting facts about Harry Potter; whoever listens to Coldmirror's "Harry Podcast" will not hear much new, but it is worth it! I found the group size a bit too big, so that I couldn't always understand everything.

Would definitely recommend for anyone who already loves Harry Potter!! We visited a lot of inspirational sites for the books which were all very interesting! We also enjoyed the quiz and trivia questions throughout! Kristal our tour guide was amazing and she completely made the tour!! She was very knowledgeable and funny and made the experience all the more interesting and enjoyable!!
