We loved it. Our guide was fun and engaging and full of interesting information. We got to see places that we would never have seen on our own. Thanks so much.

The tour was great!

4 star rating: Recommended January 2014

Me and my family really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to any Harry Potter fan ( and even those 'weird' people who aren't fans! ). The tour guide was very informative and made it a fun experience.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2013

We enjoyed this but the bus was a little small for large people. There wasn't a lot of leg room and you had to get on and off the bus a lot. The guide was great and the information was very interesting.

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2015

We were expecting something better but if you like Harry Potter you can try. It's specifically for kids around 10 years old.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2013

Interesting if you're a Harry Potter fan .

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2015

My friends and I were very excited to go on this tour and had been planning and looking forward to it for weeks. Upon arriving in London three hours earlier than the departure time, we slowly made our way to the presumed starting point and waited around that area. Considering my friends and I are study abroad students attending a university outside of London, we are not very familiar with the city itself. The directions for the meeting point of this tour were extremely confusing and due to the fact that none of us had ever been in the Temple Bar area, we assumed we were supposed to meet at the actual Temple Bar monument which of course was incorrect. After running the 15 minute walk from the Temple Bar monument to the Temple Bar restaurant and underground stop we arrived to find the tour had left without us. Although I'm assuming the actual tour was great, more specific directions leading us to the actual meeting point other than "Central London near Temple Bar" would have been very helpful.
