Overall rating

3.0 / 5

based on 6 reviews

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.

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!

Good information in advance. Excellent bus and information on site. Very nice excursion. We were able to see everything and even eat half way through.

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!
