Jack was great from the get go! Lots of quizzes and knowledge sharing about Harry Potter and sights. The extra for the trip down the Thames made it extra special. Well curated. Even if you were not a 100% Harry Potter fan, you would enjoy this tour. If you book your Harry Potter theatre tickets after the tour, it would make a perfect Harry Potter Day!
