This was a really fun tour! My daughter and I really enjoyed it! Our tour guide Monique was awesome. She share a lot of fun facts about Edinburgh and how the Harry Potter series came to be. The quizzes through out the tour made a blast!
Fun, fun, fun!

Kieran was the best! He knew so much about Harry and the series, and he was an absolute delight to listen to! I would highly recommend this tour - it was the perfect way to start off our Scotland holiday!
Great tour, fab guide!

Kieran was really great. He gave everyone a chance in the quiz. It was great to have him speak so loudly as everyone could hear no matter where you stood in the group. Highly enjoyable and would gladly recommend Kieran!
Kieran’s HP tour

Enjoyed quizzes and Kieran’s energy and enthusiasm. Not too strenuous, but a nice walk around the city.
Great tour for Harry Potter fans, young and older alike

Thanks to our tourguide, Amy, for a great walking tour of Edinburgh featuring the highlights of Harry Potter and inspirations for JK Rowling. I normally shy away from walking tours while traveling, but I opted for this tour for my daughter who is a huge Harry Potter fan. I'm so glad I did because she loved the tour and it was a highlight of our trip to Edinburgh. Amy created a fun and participative atmosphere amongst the Harry Potter fans- and expertly fielded the eager, younger participants (like my children). The tour was easily walkable for my 9 and 6 year old. Highly recommend.
City which inspired Potter!!!

Jenny was an excellent tour guide who kept it so entertaining and exciting to my kid. Would definitely do this if you have any Harry Potter fans in the family.
Potter fun filled tour
, Apr 2022
Everything about this tour was fab from start to finish. The knowledge and fun element that our tour guide Kieran provided was outstanding. Kieran got to know everyone in the group individually, finding out how far along they were in the Harry Potter story which made it so personal . He had the children and adults engrossed from the get go . Great fun element with the quizzes on the way ,all the stories and historical places to see plus fantastic tour guide Kieran what more could you want .
Potterheads will love it!

I loved our tour guide Jenny. My favourite part was the Diagon Alley since we were asked questions in it, my kid liked the sense of competition. We greatly enjoyed it and our housing.
