We had Monique for the Harry Potter tour and she was excellent! I am not even close to knowing as much as Monique, but her and the other people on my tour we're friendly, and from different countries. We walked through Edinburgh and took many photos and had a trivia challenge. Was really glad I did it.

Hi Lisa, I did your tour in February 2020 with my Muggle parents and Muggle brothers. It was the best Harry Potter tour - EVER! Despite the sleet, it was entertaining, eventful, educational and a great further excursion into the world of Harry. The main thing was that we children (5, 10, 12 years) were able to run the tour well, the fight in the cemetery ;-) and the quiz at the end ... we all learned something ;-) If I did it again come to EDI, see you - sure !!!!!!!!! Thank you Lisa and all the best .... V and family

Our tour guide was Kristel and she was amazing. She was super informative and engaging and took us to looks of great spots as well as having a quiz, all in all it was a great tour! The tour route was pretty extensive and includes lots of areas we wouldn't have otherwise seen.
