We were a bit skeptical at first because the price/pers. This tour seems quite cheap for an almost 3 hour tour, but it was really very informative and entertaining. Our guide Aaron was also very easy to understand for non-native speakers of English, was considerate of all participants at all times and made sure that nobody got lost ;-) A clear recommendation and "thumbs up" from us!

Charlotte was brilliant! She made herself known and visible at the start of the tour, so bad directional tourists like me can easily find your guide. Incredibly warm and welcoming, she set a fantastic tone for the tour. Knew we were on to a winner. She is a Potterhead through and through, and knew the ins and outs of everything! As I think most of us hardcore fans of Potter would say, we know the deepest of lore, and still Charlotte shared absolute gems of trivia that I didn't know. Which really makes the tour great - you get to show off a bit of your knowledge of HP, you learn tons of new things about our fandom too. What's not to love? She guided us fantastically through the busy streets of Muggle and Wizarding London. She was always visible so no one gets lost in the crowd. And the spots you visit are BRILLIANT! She loves HP and it shows. And she had a tough audience on our tour, so she did amazingly to keep the energy and excitement up for the whole 3 hours THANK YOU CHARLOTTE

We did this walking tour on 6/30 and had a lot of fun with Aaron who was very knowledgeable (and hilarious), not just about Harry Potter but also about all of the sites we visited in general. Highly recommend this tour because you get the best of Harry Potter sites plus London sites in general! Great for families.
