    The tour was just great! Sonja not only knew a lot about Harry Potter, but also took us to places that we would otherwise never have discovered. In between, she also liked to tell us something about London itself, so there's something for everyone who is dragged along by a Harry Potter fan.

    Pleasant visit but absolutely not suitable for an 8 year old child. The Harry Potter dream is shattered.

    The tour guide was very nice and friendly. In any case, thanks to her! None of my writing is to be taken personally upon them. But the money we paid for the tour is definitely too high. Value for money is not there. We didn't have very high expectations, but you have to adapt the organization and, above all, the tour labeling! As you can read from their description, you almost think you're seeing Harry Potter in person. We had way too long to walk. The tour guide even had to look for places themselves. Sometimes there were up to 20 minutes without words and we had to run after her all over London. My recommendation: let someone guide who has seen the films and has not memorized places or only knows the books. I'm really sorry for paying so much money for a tour like this. We as a family of 4 and Harry Potter fans are pretty disappointed.
