    Fantastic tour around York. Entertained a 11 yr old, a 13 yr old and an adult! Tour guide Tom was brilliant and we definitely would have missed lots of the sights without the tour. There were questions and challenges throughout the tour. Would recommend.

    We had Libby as our guide and she kept our grouo of 8 entertained really well. There should have been more people however 2 more joined us at St Mary's Chapel. Lobby was very light hearted and funny, her knowledge of York & HP was really great. Libby had a way of getting the group to laugh along together not at each other. She was very good at her job and I've already recommended to friends that they should book the tour. Thanks Libby

    Our Guide ‘Tom’ (Alias Hagrid!) was fantastic! So theatrical and knowledgeable on all aspects of York’s history and the Harry Potter brand! My son George , who has Down’s syndrome, is a complete HP geek and smashed the quiz questions! Can highly recommend m!!
