What To Expect

Select your desired departure time when you book. Then, begin your experience with a pickup at your central London hotel (select hotels only).

Meet your friendly driver, who doubles as your guide, and hop inside your private London black taxi. Your taxi accommodates up to five passengers for one fixed price, making the tour excellent value for money.

Settle aboard and start out on your tour of London filming locations used in the series of Harry Potter movies. Drink in the views of London’s elegant streets and monuments as you travel, and make your first stop at Diagon Alley, the street where Harry and his friends stock up with student wizard supplies such as robes, wands and spell-casting books.

Next, view where Harry vanishes to Platform 9¾ at King's Cross train station, and pause to see where Harry and Ron steal the Weasley's flying Ford Anglia car in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Stand on the Knight Bus bridge that starred in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and view the all-new Leaky Cauldron, the wizard’s pub.

Plus, see locations used in the 5th film of the series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Witness the London landmarks Harry passes on his flight to the city with Dumbledore's Army, and check out the site of the red telephone box that serves as the mysterious entrance to the Ministry of Magic. 

Stand on the exact spot where Harry and Voldemort meet for the first time following the Triwizard Tournament in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, and see the headquarters of the Order of the Phoenix, the home of Harry's adored Godfather, Sirius Black.

Your tour ends with a drop-off back at your hotel or another central London location.

Thanks for the lovely review! Glad you enjoyed your taxi tour with Michael
One of the highlights of our trip to London!
Joseph_C, Apr 2023
Michael was the best tour guide we could’ve had for this experience. He was very knowledgeable about all things, Harry Potter, and was very engaging for my equally knowledgeable daughters. He was very professional, driver and guide. Since he is a father, he was very engaging as a father figure. He was attentive and asked my daughters, lots of questions to keep them engaged. In addition to knowing Harry Potter, in and out, he was very knowledgeable about the history of London, and able to point out many things during our drive. this was definitely a highlight of our trip. we definitely recommend doing this excursion if you have a chance. Having Michael as our private tour guide was a huge plus!

Taylor_R, Apr 2023
We had the MOST magical Harry Potter Black Taxi Tour of London with our guide, Mr. Michael. He arrived 15 minutes early and accommodated us running late. Michael took us to all our favorite Harry Potter sites, plus other interesting London sites, teaching us fun history along the way. His tour made not only our day, but our ENTIRE trip, a true highlight for everyone in our family! Michael truly cares about his passengers making sure all our needs were met and that we had the most wonderful time. When it was time to conclude our tour and say goodbye to Michael, I had HAPPY tears in my eyes. :). Thank you, Michael, and Viator tours!

Thanks for the review! So glad you enjoyed your Harry Potter taxi tour with Mark.
Kelli_B, June 2022
Mark was such a great tour guide for our visit to Harry Potter’s world!! He was so knowledgeable and even gave these super-fans a run for their money. We especially appreciated that he showed a clip of each movie scene to refresh our memories when we arrived at sights. Mark was also great about pointing out non-HP sites along our journey! Would highly recommend Mark and his Harry Potter tour!! 🪄
Great time if your a Harry Potter fan
Charles_C, May 2022
This was great value for money. Our kid is a big HP fan and we were taken to lots of parts of London where scenes were filmed. Our driver had the scenes on an iPad as a refresher and we also saw quite a few neighborhoods we would not have seen had we not taken the tour. Our driver was incredibly welcoming and knowledgeable. Wonderful experience.
Response from Host, May 2022
So glad you had a great time on your Harry Potter tour. Thanks for the lovely review.
Great Tour!
Alexandria_H, May 2022
Our driver Mark was very knowledgeable and didn't miss anything. We got to see a lot of Harry Potter filming locations and also got to see the sights in London. If you are a Harry Potter fan this is a great tour and if you aren't, it's still a great way to see the city.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed your Harry Potter London tour with Mark.
Not worth the $.
Nazar_K, Apr 2022
They took us to some of the sites where they filmed Harry Potter. It was basic locations like a street the night bus drove on or the entrance to the ministry of magic. I would have preferred to go on a history tour.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thanks for your comments. Harry Potter tours are really for Harry Potter fans who love to see the locations in London were the Harry Potter movies were filmed. If you had booked one of our highlights tours we would have been more than happy to take you on a history tour of London.
Great activity for the kids!
Lisa_P, Apr 2022
Mick, our driver was great! He was very sweet with our young girls and kept them interested by showing little clips of the movie scenes where we were visiting. This is definitely geared towards kids, but my husband and I enjoyed relaxing in the cab while being driven around London after a long day of sightseeing.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thanks for your lovely review. Glad both you and the children enjoyed your Harry Potter tour!
Wonderful experience!
Esther_R, Apr 2022
