Amber was an incredible guide and I would use her for any tour in London. My twin and I were very tired that morning at the start of our day but ambers joyous bubbly personality woke us out of our stupor and turned our day into a marvelous experience. So full of knowledge and gave us the best tips for the rest of our trip. She was a delight and we would use her again in a heartbeat!!

The tour was a great day out for Harry Potter fans and non-Harry Potter fans alike, as we got to see sites from the movies as well as sites of London in general. Tom was a wonderful, enthusiastic guide who clearly knows his stuff.

Great experience, the ride was good, the guide was nice and the Warner Studies were in a whole different level!! Although I think the Oxford trip was really express but nonetheless worthy

Super organized. Good communication. Very nice driver. Were quickly in Watford and back in London. We got along well with the 4 hours, but it wasn't full on our visit day (Wednesday).

Our guide was AWESOME! Hagrid gives the best tour-humorous and personable and took time to speak with everyone in the group personally. Such a nice guy/guide!
