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.

Monique is a true potter head! it was a nice tour with all the spots where JK got inspired and got the ideas of character names. her recommendations for HP merch shops were amazing.

The tour with Monique was a pleasure! We had a great time listening to all the interesting facts about the city linked to the books. Thanks a lot!

Es hat sehr viel Spass gemacht! Unsere Leiterin Monique hat das super gemacht und mit viel Liebe.
