Julie did a good job. Seeing inspiration points for Harry Potter and learning facts about JK Rowling while walking around beautiful Edinburgh was great. , Cemetery is very cool! (Anyone going on the tour there are steps and cobblestone, some in our group were not prepared for that and felt bad for them.)

The most memorable part of our experience was the tour guide, Angus. He was super friendly, very engaging and funny, and highly knowledgeable on the subject matter! My teenagers were engaged the entire time! They loved being quizzed on Harry Potter facts and Angus’s humor kept them laughing and interested. This tour was just the right mix of the author, the books, the history, and even current events related to the author/books. We enjoyed every minute! We also think Angus deserves a raise 😀 He was brilliant!
