We took the Harry Potter Walking Tour with Anna. Because another group did not show up, we basically got a private tour, which was great. Anna was super friendly, very knowledgeable, and patiently answered all our question and waited for us while we took pictures or explored some of the stores that are part of the tour. It was fascinating to see and hear about the places that inspired J.K. Rowling, the spots where movie scenes were filmed, and to hear little anecdotes relating to the HP books and movies. For us, the tour was an amazing experience that we would recommend to anyone with an interest in the Harry Potter universe.

This tour really was a wonderful experience. My daughter (26) and I (54) booked this tour just the night before after we saw "Harry Potter and the cursed child" - and it was the best descision we could make. This tour ( Saturday 13:30h) guided by the marvellous Sarah was amazing. We had so much fun and saw so many interesting and beautiful places which we never had discovered by ourselves. Sarah showed us the movieparts on her tablet. An absolut perfect tour through beautiful London. Also we appreciate that it was a small group - just eight persons altogether. So driving with the tube was no problem at all.
