We saw many spots in London that inspired the books or were used for filming the movies. Our guide, Louis not Louis, was very knowledgeable about the books, films, and the difference between. We asked lots of questions about other places and buildings. Louis had all the answers and added even more information. He engaged the group with clips of the movies and trivia. We enjoyed the Harry Potter walking tour completely, and would recommend it for all ages.

Our guide, Sophie, was amazing. Listening, available, she enchanted us with her interesting anecdotes, her historical detours and her creativity. We also owe her a great debt: she took us to the Harry Potter shop in Leicester where our granddaughter purchased Harry Potter items which we were unable to do at King's Cross because the store was closed. Imagine what her disappointment would have been, she was waiting for this moment with so much impatience! Hats off to Sophia!

Excellent tour of filming sites of the film series, with a few extra film locations of other famous films. Standing in the site while reviewing the films was a nice touch. Our guide Nick was incredible, and very approachable for the younger fans!!! Using the Underground was simple, but it does help to have some previous knowledge of this method. Nick stepped us through the whole process seamlessly. We did not stop at Platform 9 3/4. But it, not the original film location, and the wait was unbelievably long.
