If you are a Harry Potter fan, you MUST do this!

This was truly an amazing place to visit and it was all organized so well! We had met one person who told us that we will be taking the train with him (while handing us tickets) and guided us from the train station to the bus, where is also told us how to get back to London from the train station since we had open ended train tickets for our return. We then had a new guide inside the studio. She was someone who was enjoyable, but really focused on what her interests were. I understand that there is A LOT to see, but for example, we stood in front of the description of the directors of the films from over the years and explained why they did these movies, etc. That is information we could have Googled if we wanted to. She did point out a lot of small details throughout the tour that really big Harry Potter fans would enjoy. After the guided tour, you were allowed to go back into the exhibits and take your time reading and reviewing. Overall, this was a very memorable experience.

Excellent way to spend 2 1/2 hours in London if you're a Potter fan.

I booked this with some trepidation as my daughter is 9 and a huge Harry Potter fan. I was worried that she would be disappointed that the locations looked nothing like the film but the way it was done with the ipads showing the complete scene from the film while you were stood on the same street corner was very effective. Being sorted into houses and having a quiz between the teams made it entertaining too. It is quite a lot of walking - ours coped well aged 9 but was starting to get tired by the end. It takes in a lot of the London sights as well and makes you realise how small the actual centre of London is. Tom our guide was brilliant - informative and patient, no mean feat to traipse that amount of people round the streets and on the tube!

An informative, fun and enjoyable experience!

The tour around London learning about the city as a backdrop to Harry Potter (and other films) was a great way to spend two and a half hours. Ryan's warm and humourus manner supported the group's engagement throughout the experience for young and old. As a tour guide, he was knowledgeable and enthusiastic when sharing the facts and information we all wanted to hear. For those attending 'The Cursed Child' like us, this is an excellent activity to do as part of the Harry Potter experience.

Great to see the sites that inspired both the books and films

We (the family) had an enjoyable tour around the Harry Potter sites of London. The only disappointment was the scaffolding around the inspiration for Diagon Alley. However, this wasn't the fault of the tour organisers. Cate explained the stories passionately and was great with the kids. My daughter immediately attached herself to Cate. A great activity for Harry Potter fans looking for something different in the capital.

Amazing tour seeing hidden treasures of London!

We had an exceptional tour with Caroline. She had great knowledge of both the history behind different parts of London as well how this played into the different locations in the Harry Potter films/books. I would recommend this to any Harry Potter fanatic who is in London. I’ve seen parts of London I’ve never seen before and this tour had a really fun element of answering questions to score house points!
