David (our guide) did an exceptional job with a large group. He was the perfect mix of fun and informative. There was plenty of interaction through the Hogwarts House competition and the wizard duel was good fun. A very enjoyable way of seeing York’s sights and hearing about its history with a liberal mix of Harry Potter fun facts along the way.

Had an amazing time on this with my husband. The guide Libby was amazing and made the walk so much fun. If you love Harry potter and want to know about York's history I would highly recommend doing this. The group we where in were highly competitive which made the running around York looking for certain things and dueling with sticks so much more fun. We honestly couldn't think of anything negative to say about Libby or this activity.
