    An easy 2-hour walk through parts of Edinburgh Old Town learning about all things Harry Potter. Our guide, Kieran, made sure everyone felt welcome as he answered any and all questions. If you are a fan of Harry Potter you'll not want to miss this tour! And even if you are not, be careful - you may well become one.

    Alex was our guide and he was fantastic! He was so enthusiastic and really got everyone involved. He told us lots of ‘secrets’ about how the Harry Potter series evolved and also quite a few lesser known facts about Edinburgh. I’d definitely recommend this tour to any one, Harry Potter fan or not!

    Wir haben die Tour gestern mit Joy gemacht. Sie hat die Tour sehr sympathisch und sehr interessant gestaltet, wir fanden sie fantastisch. Selbst wenn man denkt, man weiß schon alles, lernt man noch etwas neues über die magische Harry Potter-Welt dazu. Vor allem geht es darum, wie Edinburgh J.K.Rowling für die Bücher inspiriert hat.
