Heard amazing things about this tour so decided to give it a go during our recent weekend away. The tour was AMAZING and one of the best things I’ve ever done in Edinburgh, would highly recommend if your a Harry Potter fan or just want to see different sights throughout Edinburgh.

Most enjoyable morning spent on this tour. Was arranged for my 10 year old granddaughter for her birthday. She is an avid fan of all things Harry Potter. The meeting place is spot on for the tour. Monique our tour guide of having to double up as her colleague was sick. She aptly dealt with 37 customers on her tour. SHe gave us a round up of the tour before we departed and even managed to throw in for fun a little quiz which became quite competitive. I would recommend this tour. It does not include any actual filming sights as none were filmed in Edinburgh but a thoroughly enjoyable morning with a delightful guide.

Monique was absolutely amazing on our tour today! My friend was in town from America and we specifically booked this tour because we are huge Harry Potter fans. We learned so much from the tour, about the city and Harry Potter! She was enthusiastic, fun, and knowledgable. I would 100% recommend this tour/Monique as a guide.
