Our guide, Kieran, made this tour so much fun! He sorted us into houses and gave points throughout the tour for questions we answered correctly. He shared a lot of information about Harry Potter and Edinburgh in general. He was a great guide and I can’t recommend the tour enough!

Me and my friend decided to book this tour for our last day in Edinburgh and we’re so glad we did! Our guide Kieran was amazing, he told us lots of info about every location and was very interactive with everyone. Thank you so much! Very fun experience that I recommend for any Harry Potter fans (especially the book lovers)

If you have read or seen any of the Harry Potter films this tour is a must as it gives you an insight into the inspiration of some of the stories people and locations. The tour also gives you the chance to see Edinburgh in all its glory. Our tour guide Kieran was knowledgeable, engaging and funny which added to our enjoyment.
