This was the best Harry Potter tour I’ve ever had. Libby was so amazing, helpful and engaging. she consumed lots of amazing knowledge and shared it with us very passionately. She was very friendly and kept the trivia very interesting. The duel has to be one of the best parts of this tour. It was so fun!!! It’s amazing how Libby handled our big group with such professionalism and she was very friendly. Best tour guide ever!!! Thankyou Libby for today. I loved it Also SLYTHERIN FOR THE WIN as always.

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.

Steve was an excellent guide for this trip! We spent just enough time in each stop and Steve was very knowledgeable about the areas we passed and the towns we stopped in. Would definitely recommend!

Matt our guide was friendly, informative and a good driver. Beautiful scenery and fun village spots

We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend this tour!
