    Amy was our guide and we were very happy with the tour and how well she explained and interacted with the group. This was the first time we came to Edinburgh and we can go back home with a lot of history knowledge about the city and about the books that was inspired (Harry Porter books) that we really appreciate so thank you for having the walking tour we really enjoyed

    This tour was so great, didn’t want it to end! Before going, we didn’t know why HP Is such a big thing in Edinburgh but now we completely understand. Absolutely loved the way we were broken up into different houses and to top it all off, our house won go hufflepuff!! Eva was a great host and had lots of fun facts to tell us.

    This was so much fun! Although it was raining most of the time, we were dedicated to do this tour and we are so glad we did, because our guide Jo made us totally forget that we were wet and cold! She told many interesting facts in such a way not everyone else could! And there was also a fun game…can’t say much, but it included the sorting hat! The tour takes around 2 hours, but the walking is light and you won’t get too tired. :) Thank you, Jo! And thanks to J.K.R. for writing HP in this beautiful city.:)
