    Absolutely brilliant tour!

    Absolutely brilliant tour! I booked this tour for my 9 year old daughter who is a massive HP fan and it did not disappoint. The Wizard of York was funny and engaging and all of us had the best time- would highly recommend!
    Magical fun

    Hilarious from the the very beginning of the tour, before it had even started we were laughing! we did loads of activities in York but as a family (2 adults and 2 kids aged 8 and 5) we all agreed the wizard walk was by far our favourite, the kids wanted to do it again the next day! Great for witches, wizards and muggles, young or old. Funny, magic, entertaining with a dash of history thrown in, many many laughs, great value for money can't reccomend it enough!
    Not to be missed!

    The Wizard was engaging from start to finish. My son absolutely adored the hour we spent wandering around York and the magic tricks were spot on for kids old and young!

    4 year old loved this. Was interactive and funny, with the wizard really knowing how to talk to kids!
    Funny and magical

    This tour was engaging and fun for the kids, and laugh-out-loud funny for the grown ups. We had a great time!
