Our guides Richard and Chris were very helpful and informative also the air-conditioned coach was lovely and our driver was great also I'm a bus driver myself and I couldn't have done a better job the way he handled those narrow roads and very tight turns was amazing.

Absolutely worth it!

Expecting more
Alvaro_B, Apr 2022
The guide (excellent) made magic to have us enternained for the 3 hours. We were expecting more locations on H.Potter. You could show more videos of the movies to locate the spots, music of the movies etc. Positive is the tour in bus for central London which enables to see main attractions of the city
Fantastic trip for all ages I highly recommend it
Rebecca_S, Mar 2022
Our tour guide Richard was absolutely amazing he was so full of knowledge not only of Harry potter but if London an its famous sites. I took my 12 year old daughter on this an she was totally amazed with the stuff she saw about London.
Disappointed daughter
Andrew_D, Aug 2021
Very tenuous connection to Harry Potter. I would go as far as to say that the emphasis on this was almost tantamount to misselling.
Good for Harry Potter fans, but only in english.
Sylvia_B, Mar 2020
Richard was a very funny and pleasant tour guide. He told us many interesting stories about the movies ans the actors we did not know and we also saw a few movie places.
An enjoyable Harry Potter Tour

Very good tour, very good guide ( Eva). Most enjoyable visiting parts of London not previously seen by us and a great introduction to the city for our grandchildren.
Too much walking
uncgrad80, Aug 2019
Jess, the tour guide was knowledgeable. The driver was beyond amazing. The sites were perfect. But a couple of us were having knew and leg issues. Jess walked so fast, it was impossible for me to keep up. A slower pace would have been appreciated, A heads up in the description about the amount of wolking would have been helpful as well.
Harry Potter bus tour with Scott. Scott was an excellent guide. The tour was fun, upbeat and informational.

It's a fun tour, but the locations...
Sara L, July 2017
It's a fun tour, but the locations are limited in terms of Harry Potter destinations, other than Platform 9 3/4. The guide is knowledgeable and it does allow you to see lots of London location, but it ranks low on the Harry Potter magic scale.

Our daughter asked to this tour. As Potter fans, we enjoyed it too. Super bus driver and very personable guide. She knew her Potter facts.

Elizabeth_B, July 2016
The meeting instruction is confusing. Temple Underground and Temple Bar is not close or we weren't in the right spot. We called, left message and they gave us the route to catch up but traffic was so bad we took too long. We completely missed it. Instead we looked online and went to the spots alone.
