It was great experience, there was no restriction on moving around the cruise and taking pics. Despite current situation of COVID-19, we could sift our seating place and took pics standing different part of cruise without wearing mask while still maintaining distance with others.
It was utterly brilliant! My girlfriend & I had so much fun! Tom was a great tour guide and he brought the whole thing to life. It was really nice as well to hear a lot about London’s history aside from the core Harry Potter mania and explore the city. Loved it.
Great night out for something unusual and different. Our tour guide John was great and full of facts but also very witty and made us feel at ease!
