    Pass on this one

    unfortunately we found this tour to be pretty lame. It started bad right out of the gate - the tour guide took off out of the tube station amongst a super heavy crowd - we had no idea if we were following the right people. The tour guide clearly wasn't aware who was all in the group he was guiding. He never asked for our tickets. We walked several blocks before he stopped and we still had a couple of people in our group very far behind. Although there was some marginally interesting commentary about the movies, it was just that - marginal. The best part of the tour was walking through the market which we probably would not have seen otherwise. Plus the 8 1/2" x 11" printouts of the movie scenes he referred to were really lame. Skip this one.

    A fantastic tour!

    Despite the understably rather depressing mood in London today, we had a wonderfull time. Our host Jess was very sensitive to the situation (London Bridge attacks the night before) as he had to make some changes to the regular tour. He was a great, enthusiastic and knowlegeable host! Our daughter was very excited to learn about the different backgrounds to the filming of the Harry Potter movies. As a professional host, Jess was able to put in some other historical stories about London that made the trip worthwhile for all of us! We where happy we did not cancel the trip and thanks again to Jeff for 2 exciting hours in London!

    I'm a huge Harry Potter fan and I had about a half day in London to myself following a business meeting and I am so glad that I found this walking tour. Phil, the tour guide, was knowledgeable, personable, and overall a fun guy. I really enjoyed the tour overall. And, as a bonus, I felt completely safe even though I was traveling by myself.
