    This was such a fun and memorable tour! Alex was a fantastic guide and leader. He was fun, easy to hear and understand, and a great educator with lots of fun facts and stories. This was a really fun HP tour (I LOVED the pre-tour sorting and trivia questions throughout!) but it would also be enjoyable for people who don’t care about Harry Potter and are just interested in seeing different parts of Edinburgh and learning cool facts about the city. Highly recommend this tour, and especially Alex as the guide!

    Jenny, our guide, is very knowledgeable and nice! The two-hour tour flew by and we discovered lots of Harry Potter-themed curiosities as well as seeing lots of characteristic places in the city with explanations attached. Despite not being a native English speaker it was easy to understand everything thanks to the dialectic of our guide Jenny. Highly recommended tour at an honest price! If you're a Harry Potter fan, you can't miss it

    This tour was absolutely amazing! It is well worth the time and price!! It’s a steal for the tour your getting. Very informative on JK Rawling and how Harry Potter was greatly inspired by the city of Edinburgh. Kristal was the best tour guide we could have asked for. Incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about not just Harry Potter but the the city as a whole. I think my husband and I were the only ones who really knew a lot about Harry Potter and she adapted brilliantly to the group by including extra stories of Edinburgh to make it enjoyable for the ones who didn’t know what she was referring to in regard to the books or movies. I would refer her and this tour over and over again!
