My tour guide was Monique and she was excellent. She made the tour interesting for adults and children alike. Would highly recommend the tour.

My sister and I booked the tour and were pleasantly surprised to find we were the only ones on the tour. Our guide, Monique, was excellent, sorting us into houses and quizzing us about all things Potter on our way around the tour. We learnt so much and are the envy of our daughters in Australia who would love to do the same tour. Highly recommended, especially if you can get Monique.

Our family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour. My granddaughters loved the quiz questions. Monique, our guide, was entertaining and informative. Thank you for such an enjoyable experience.

Our guide Monique was darling and had quite a bit of information about JK Rowling. But besides seeing Tom Riddle's grave (which was cool), IMO there wasn't really that much to see.

The walking tour was quite good, although I considered the group was far to large to keep up through the crowded streets, our guide confessed it was the largest group she had ever had. The talk was quite informative on a very shallow basis, vague connections to J K Rowling and no more. The tour was all over and finished in an hour although the sales talk when booking suggested two hours were needed for the tour, I did not consider the tour was terribly good value for money.

This tour was horrible, I would give it a zero if possible because almost 0 content was related to Harry Potter. I left before it was over. Guide seemed to know almost nothing about Harry Potter. Felt terrible for the kids on the walk. There was nothing magical about this. Skip at all costs.
Great tour for enthusiastic Harry...
