    What a great way to see Edinburgh with a lot of Harry Potter fandom! There were so many fun facts & great stops along the way. Our guide was Alex and he was superb, very friendly, witty and great pace (storytelling & walking haha). Would definitely give the tour and Alex a 10/10!

    Really enjoyed this tour! Jo was our guide, she was lovely! She was fab showing us round and telling us all fun facts about the inspiration behind the books. She included everyone, we were sorted into houses and had mini quizzes throughout the tour at certain spots which my son enjoyed. It is more about JK Rowling but I thought it was great! I’d recommend it to any Harry Potter fan :)

    This is a great way to start off your visit to Edinburg. Plenty of fun facts about JK Rowling and Harry Potter. A fantastic guide!!!! Give our best to our great New Zealand/Swedish guide “Jo”! The tour is very short but as mentioned this is perfect in order to just get to know the basic way around town. (42year old father and 15 year old daughter enjoyed it a lot)
