    I had a magical time on this tour with Kieran. He was very animated, knew so many interesting things about Edinburgh and Harry Potter, and was also very considerate about our desire to take pictures at each stop. I really fell in love with taking guided walking tours after this experience.

    Clare our tour guide was so full of life that you couldn’t help but enjoy it. The tour itself was really interesting and informative and was gentle enough for most people to be able to give it a go. The competitive nature of our tour gave it the extra touch we were looking for.

    Our tour guide Clare was amazing! I wish everybody to get a chance to walk with her as she was friendly, funny and easy to understand. This tour is definitely worth your time, if you are a true HP fan. You’ll find out many surprising things about J.K. Rowling and Edinburgh. So don’t hesitate and hop on this adventure .
