Fantastic experience and a Great tour!!
By Dan Brennan on February 11, 2017
Had a fantastic tour with Sam today. He got everyone really evolved in the tour doing the Harry Potter house teams and using a sorting hat and doing post for answering questions. He had a great knowledge of J K Rowling and Edinburgh and that caused for a fantastic experience! Would definitely recccomend to anyone who loves Harry Potter and is visiting or lives in Edinburgh!!
Very Good Tour

The tour was both fun and informative despite the horrendous weather. Our guide Stephanie battled through snow and rain while still managing to conduct a thourghly enjoyable tour. We would both consider ourselves massive Harry Potter fans and we still learnt loads of new facts. We would recommend and may return to repeat the experience in better weather.
Wonderful experience

Fantastic experience with a great tour guide, Sam, who got everyone involved in the tour with a sorting hat and putting people into the different houses and then asking questions and giving points as we went along! The tour guide's knoweledge was great and that caused for an amazing tour! Enjoyed every second of it and would reccomend going to everyone!
Very good, interesting and value for money

This tour ended up just being me and my girlfriend! It was very in depth information about the history of j.k rowlings book and its connection with Edinburgh and the different landmarks! I'm not a die hard Harry Potter fan like my girlfriend was but still was very intrested and amazed at some of the information shared! Highly recommend, enjoy.
Great experience!

Really good and nice tour, our guide Sam was very friendly and showed us lots of things about harry potter and J.K. Rowling life and how she wrote the books so as where she got the stories from! Sorting hat and points for each house included. Very entertaining and good guidance through the old town (even raining and with freezing cold!).
