Traveler Tips

Be prepared to walk, and note not all locations are included (logistically this would be impossible) - but the tour guide provided instructions on seeing others should you desire.
I would not suggest taking one of the other shorter tours unless you simply can't spare the time.
Be warned; we did not go to Platform 9 3/4 in Kings Cross, so you may want to venture to the station on your own.

Great Tour!!
Renee_P, Jun 2023
The tour guide was wonderful! Very engaging with everyone on the tour. He was VERY knowledgable about the locations and Harry Potter trivia. He had a great personality and my son really enjoyed talking to him. This tour was a last minute booking and I'm so glad we did it. I enjoyed seeing a more "real" side of London and not just a bunch of touristy spots!
Great tour for those short in time!
Brandy_R, Jun 2023
This was such a fun experience for my 11 year old daughter who is Harry Potter obsessed. We knew we had limited time, so the 2 hour tour fit our schedule and we made sure that she understood that we would be visiting JK inspiration and a few actual filming sites, to manage expectations. We also let her know that we would not be seeing platform 9 3/4, but we made time for that another day. Christopher was so engaging and had my daughter hanging on his every word. We would definitely recommend this tour!
Great tour and the guide was awesome

Tour guide was very informative and entertaining. Taught us a lot about Harry Potter but also gave a nice tour of parts of London. This tour is good for those who love Harry Potter and those who are not necessarily big fans as well.

Kevin_W, Dec 2022
This was a nice walking tour. We did it on Christmas Day, and it was great to have such a quiet city to walk through. Made hearing the guide and staying together very easy. Our guide, Charlie, was high energy and seemed to really love his job. He did a great job of engaging each person on the tour and giving us a good amount of information. Would recommend.
A must!
