We had a tour all to ourselves, which is due to the fact that it slipped back 3 hours unplanned. So we could be happy about this sole care. Our guide Kara was great. The 1 star deduction is only due to the postponement because we had to change our planning, which probably not everyone was able to do

The tour was a total success. Our guide's name was Tessa. She was very funny and not only gave us information about Harry Potter but also about the city itself. A must for every Harry Potter fan. But also suitable for muggles. She explained the story from the films at each location so that anyone who did not know the films could still follow. I definitely recommend the tour.

The tour was excellent. There was many interesting informations about the places, about the filming process and also about London. We putted this tour on the first day of our London trip and it was the best decision, because we saw a lot of places from our list which we would have to see twice and spend our time. We had a break, shopping in the shop with a discount and also enough time for taking photos. Our guide Sarah even knew the most photogenic places :) She was full of energy and very friendly.
