The Harry Potter walking tour was brilliant. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our tour guide Robert was really, really good. He was a fountain of information and he was so passionate that he made the tour and gave 110%. Would highly recommend it for any "keen" Harry Potter fans and "non-completely keen" ones as well, like my husband.

It was a really good surprise to have such a really good tour

I booked this show because my son is ten years old. We really enjoyed the tour. Ben was an amazing passionate storyteller, he told us so many stories and gave us a really good moment. We all shared a great time ! So go for it, don't hesitate and it will make your day.

Big Ben is phenomenal and I was nearly in tears or overjoyed with tour

I found your tour guide ‘big Ben’ both informative and inspiring. His vast knowledge of WWII history, London history, architecture, Harry Potter, and all things J.K. Rawling was inspirational. Please continue to do these Harry Potter tours with Ben as he is ‘gold’ for your company. He seems to have a good connection with the locals, and his sense of humour is ‘wicked.’ Well done Ben!!!
