Absolutely loved this tour! Mason did a great job in explaining J.K Rowling's connections with Edinburgh and how many aspects of the city inspired her Harry Potter ideas. An ideal way to see the city's landmarks too.

Very enjoyable, nice way to spend a few hours and better understand the hidden secrets of the city linked with J.K. Rowling inspiration sources.

A very informative tour for Harry Potter fans. It's about the creation of the books, about filming locations, about the author.

Mason was so great. He made it fun and informative. He shared fun stories and interesting facts. So glad we took his tour.

We had the best time! Mason was very good tour guide lots of knowledge
