Overall rating

based on 13,002 reviews

We saw many spots in London that inspired the books or were used for filming the movies. Our guide, Louis not Louis, was very knowledgeable about the books, films, and the difference between. We asked lots of questions about other places and buildings. Louis had all the answers and added even more information. He engaged the group with clips of the movies and trivia. We enjoyed the Harry Potter walking tour completely, and would recommend it for all ages.

A fun way to see the sights along the Thames, with lively, entertaining guides providing commentary. Remember the sunscreen! And bring cash for tipping the crew, they have a collection bucket as you disembark.

Awesome way to see the sights and then pick and choose which ones to visit. Way better than hop on and off bus with traffic I believe

A great tour with Jack offering a new look at London through the lens of Harry Potter.

Johnathan (Hagrid) and Hannah were amazing host and story tellers
