It was great! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Harry Potter, and I loved the house competition aspect. I also loved getting to see some fun parts of London unrelated to Harry Potter, such as Old Scotland Yard, the Millennium Bridge, and Borough Market. The only complaint came from my 8-year-old, who felt that the tour focused too much on filming locations and not enough on the magic of Harry Potter. But what can you do (short of going to Warner Studios in London)?

It was an amazing experience me and my friend both enjoyed it so much our tour guide was absolutely amazing, it was great to see all the places around london where Harry Potter was filmed.

Although I'm not a Potter fan and don't know any films or books, it was really exciting. The guide was really fantastic. She provided us with great background information.

Great tour for Harry Potter nerds and anyone who is not entirely uninterested. The guide was very nice and funny and it wasn't boring for a minute.

Bad thing I was changed twice Good thing a great experience great Tour and guide
