I booked the tour more for my daughters benefit, she is a big Harry Potter fan. I’m not sure what I was expecting but as £10 per person is relatively cheap for activities in the city, I thought it was good value for money. The weather was not on our side, infact it poured down from start to finish but the guide was up beat throughout and made sure we still got to experience all the points of interest. Despite not being the biggest Harry Potter fan myself, I found the tour and the information fascinating. I would recommend to anyone visiting with children/teenagers as a way to motivate them to explore with you.
