Jay, our guide was very knowledgable about Harry Potter and the history of york. She was enthusiastic, friendly and you could tell she wanted us to fully enjoy our trip. She pointed out lots places of interest and linked them seamlessly with Harry Potter themes and characters. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour.

For Potter fans, this is a trill. The audio guide is not necessary and in fact, we didn’t have time to go through the whole guide as there is too much to see and do. The scenes are magical. Butterbeer taste like a mix of root beer and ginger ale. Try to get earlier time slot cause if you are a big fan, there is lots to see. We took a lunch break at the cafeteria. They had vegetarian option, which is great!
