      We decided to do this tour with our daughter (10) who is a Harry Potter fan, having never been to Scotland before we were hoping to get a feel for areas we would like to look at ourselves in more detail, it certainly did that. Myself, my husband and son (15) have seen the films but nothing more. Even though we knew very little about Harry Potter we were still able to relate to the tour and I think I might actually go and read the books after all, thanks to Jenny and the great way she explained things. It was really interesting with some details about the area and a few stories that were not fully Harry Potter related but were still relevant and interesting all the same. Our tour guide, Jenny, was brilliant, really engaging, really informative and she tried really hard to keep everyone interested. It was a large group (47) as the other tour guide called in sick as the tour was due to start but Jenny took it in her stride and did an amazing job giving everyone a great tour.

      Such a fun tour and I would highly recommend! Our tour guide Sarah was brilliant and I would recommend doing the tour with her! I really enjoyed the quiz as we were walking around as it got everyone involved. A Must do tour for any potterhead but even those who aren't potter fans would enjoy it

      Monique was an amazing guide. She was lively, informative and knowledgeable about all things Harry Potter related. The tour was easy to follow, fun and interactive with unknown facts and team quizzes! Many thanks Monique for making our trip to Edinburgh memorable and entertaining our 8 year old Harry Potter mad little one!
