We did this as a group of 1 adult and 3 kids (aged 12-14). Some of the clues were too difficult but you do get the option to skip and move onto next clue. The facts about Edinburgh and Harry Potter were good. There isn’t too much walking as long as you don’t get lost! We all enjoyed it and would recommend.

It was great fun. The tour leads through OldTown and is a must for Potter fans. Interesting details of Edinburgh are given along the way. The puzzles are fun and easy to solve.
