    We had an amazing time during our tour! If you think the tour might not be worth it since no scenes were filmed in Edinburgh, you would be very wrong. Not only did we visit various spots which inspired J. K. Rowling and learned incredible facts about Harry Potter, but we also heard about Scotland’s history and folk stories. Our tour guide, Mason, was very knowledgeable and knew how to keep us entertained with funny facts and trivia questions. Would definitely recommend even if some family members aren’t fans of the Harry Potter, since it’s also a great way of getting to know the city.

    Jenny was my tour guide. She was awesome! She was positive and energetic, and she spoke loudly, slowly, and clearly. And she knows lots of Harry Potter trivia from the books. She even put us into Hogwarts Houses, and she awarded points for our houses when we got her Harry Potter trivia questions correct. Jenny made the tour a lot of fun!

    I had a great time doing this tour, it was definitely a highlight of my day! Seeing Edinburgh from this side and hearing all the interesting stuff about Harry Potter was certainly an experience I'd repeat! Our guide Kieran was a delight as well, very funny and a fount of witty, interesting and all kinds of new information about Harry Potter, Edinburgh, and Harry Potter in Edinburgh!
