We attended this tour with our daughters ages 10 & 7 on 12/27/21. Our tour guide Ana was a lovely person who really made the experience fun for the kids (and mom). They are excited to watch the movies again so that they can spot the filming locations we visited. It would be fairly impossible to find some of these locations on your own unless you are very familiar with London. I highly recommend this tour if you are visiting, especially with kids (or any HP fan, really). We finished around lunch time and still had time to make it to Windsor Castle for the afternoon tour there.

Whilst we live in London, we found this tour super fun and informative. We were taken to places that we didn't even know existed! Hagrid/John, our guide, is extremely knowledgeable and engaging throughout. Highly recommend this tour to all - locals or visitors!!

Our guide Deborah was amazing... really enjoyed the visit to St. Paul's Cathedral the most...

Everyone had a good time. It was interactive and entertaining.

Great for all ages - an interesting tour of central london
