    Crystal was fab as a guide and we really enjoyed seeing Edinburgh from a Harry Potter point of view. My 13yr old daughter is a huge HP fan and she was fascinated in learning even more about the books and the ideas behind them. Lots of walking but luckily we had lovely weather. Thankyou for a great experience!
