My partner is a huge Harry Potter fan and I went along thinking "OK it's only 2 hours it'll be grand" both him and I actually really enjoyed the tour we had with Jenny. She literally knew so much about Harry Potter and some other stuff too about the area. Very captivating. If you are thinking of booking this tour hopefully you get Jenny because she was FANTASTIC!

Sean was an amazing guide, you should tell her was really passionate and it came through as we walked around. The weather was poor and he handled it really well and didn’t let it ruin the day. His knowledge was amazing and was very informative! Really really enjoyed it. Thankyou

Amazing tour. Our tour guide, Kristel knew everything about the Harry Potter novels but we got way more than that. She showed us around the city and we also heard fascinating stories about the city of Edinburgh. She is a very talented and friendly person. I'd recommend the tour to everyone who's into the Harry Potter show like myself. You'll be witches and wizards at the end of the tour.
