This tour was amazing and a great way to get to know some of the HP inspo around Edinburgh as well as doubling up as a little walking tour around the city too. It was super interactive and Kieran our guide was fun, entertaining and engaging. We loved the quiz as well, it was the perfect tour, thanks Kieran for a fantastic afternoon!

Fantastic tour guide Kieran was so entertaining he made us all laugh and put his own spin on guiding. He brought his own sorting hat and sorted us into the houses then kept asking us quiz questions as we made our way around. This added another element to the tour to make it fun and memorable. I would definitely recommend the tour to all HP fans and even those who are not because there were plenty of Edinburgh facts sprinkled throughout. It was a great way to see the city and helped us to get our bearings for the rest of our trip.
