      Kristel was our guide she was very enthusiastic and made all the information very interesting I was on the the tour with my 2 daughters 9 and 12 who are huge Harry Potter fans but were a bit shy to shout out answers for the quizzes( when it was mostly adults there),but she made a special effort to make sure they were included. Would definitely recommend!

      Very nice little tour with some quality information and a beautiful walk around the area. Our guide was Kristel who was a great leader for the group and I very much enjoyed being sorted into Hogwarts houses and collecting points! I am a huge HP fan so this tour was a must have for me and my boyfriend and I must say I am not disappointed! Highly recommend for every potterhead and hopefully you will be lucky enough to get Kristel as your guide :)

      Learned a ton about J.K. Rowling, the ideas and creation behind the Harry Potter series as well as very interesting facts about Edinburgh. Really enjoyed the tour and would recommend to all! The quiz questions throughout the walking tour made it more participatory and fun. I would recommend to all!
