We had a great tour with our guide Emma. She was very witty and knowledgeable and kept us all safe on our whistle stop tour of Harry Potter sites around central London. It took about 3.5 hours and I think get to the meeting point in Kings Cross station early so you can get a photo of yourself at Platform 9 3/4. The meeting point is just beside it. Well done definitely worth the time and money.

We love it!! If you visit London this is definitely a tour you need to take if HP fan, like my daughter and me. Even my husband enjoyed it. Luckily we had a most amazing guide, Freya, vibrant, knowledgeable, very engaging

This is not cheap, but rest assured: it is really worth it. And the service that is promised is also delivered. If you're even a little into Harry Potter and you can afford it: do it and enjoy!

Chris was an excellent guide. He was considerate and friendly. I strongly recommend this tour to you.

An amazing tour for Potterheads and those who want a new way of exploring London!
