    I had a tour with Monique and she was an amazing guide (i guess it's the Hufflepuff blood in her). Although I initially expected to see the actual filming locations, the trip around the see locations and learn factoids about places that inspired JK Rowling was a pleasant surprise as well. Great additional factoids by Monique about history of Edinburgh as well as some behind the scene Harry Potter fun facts are great as well. Highly recommend for Potterhead and more importantly Monique as a guide - for a trip like this, you need a Potterhead guide :)

    Kieran was the best guide I have ever had on a tour. He engaged everyone on the tour, shared an incredible vault of Harry Potter knowledge, stopped to talk to the group in a way that everyone could hear and see. During walking time he talked with individual people and showed an interest in them. His accent is very thick but I had no trouble understanding him and I am deaf (wear hearing aids). I would highly recommend this tour for anyone. Hopefully you are lucky enough to have Kieran as your guide.

    Our guide, Kieran, was terrific. He had excellent people skills and was extremely knowledgeable. We went on the Harry Potter walking tour, in Edinburgh, yesterday with our 9 year old grandson Jamie, who was engaged with the tour the whole time. Kieron made the tour very interesting for all ages, and his obvious love and expertise of all things Harry Potter was amazing. I am completely in awe of his presentation and have already begun to read the first book. We can’t speak highly enough of Kieran, he made the walk come alive for us all. It was a most enjoyable experience.
