Overall rating

4.5
(30,152 reviews)

Overall, the sightseeing tour is always a good choice. However, in London, the audio guide on the green route was not set correctly in German, which meant that background music played the whole time and there was no information about the attractions visited. This was a real shame. The relevant information was available in another language (tested with English).

Hanna was superb! What a perfect match for such a fun tour, focusing on Harry Potter but sprinkled with tidbits of London's history and culture throughout! We highly recommend this tour to HP fans of rank, house, or age!

I have the opportunity of see almost all London in a view. Excellent information about iconic places as well.

Frederic was great! the small house cup was a great extra interaction with Frederic.

Lovely way to see the city by night. Special thanks for the great host!
