It was excellent. Platform 9 3/4 was really the least of it, the guide was knowledgable and interesting; especially making the point of Rowling writing about England as it is, and how the movies and books were capturing very real essences from London. My kids and I have been watching the movies again, and it is no end of thrilling to see the places we walked on the screen.
We had a great time! The tour was entertaining and informative. I'd recommend this tour to anyone traveling to London!
We really enjoyed our tour. The guides were great and very informative.
Our family of 4 completed this tour in July. Our guide was fantastic. His knowledge of London and Harry Potter was superb. He was able to show us HP movie sites on his tablet while we stood at the exact London location, truly amazing ! This was one of our hightlights of our entire 12 day Europe trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone going to London.
Our guide, Frankie, truly brought to life the world of Harry Potter with London as a backdrop. His knowledge of settings not just for HP but other movies really fleshed out the tour. We found him knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly.
Our tour guide was very informative and entertaining. We had John, who I referred to as the Scotsman. He kept it lively and made sure the group was always together as well as worried about our safety. Overall I had an amazing time.
We had a great time. Our tour guide, Franky, is so nice and so knowledgable. Poor guy that he didn't sound up about the tipping ,so I think not many people had tip him for his excellent service. In short, we had great time. It could have been better if we could get special line to take picture on platform 9 3/4. We spent almost 40 minutes waiting in line for photo shot
What made the tour fantastic were the guides. They were engaging, funny, lively and, of course, Harry Potter aficionados! We couldn't have asked for a better tour. Thank you!
The two tour guides were very knowledgeable not only about Harry Potter info, but about London as well. In addition to being knowledgeable, they were highly entertaining, which made the tour very enjoyable!
Very interesting tour
Made entertaning by our excellent Australian gude Tom
May be an idea for guests to be advised of extra cost for underground before booking as some people may not be prepared for it or may not even like to use underground
All in all though we did very much enjoy it Thank You
This was a fun tour and the guide came with scene photos from the movie to let us compare what we were seeing to what was in the movie. Our guide was fun and easy to keep pace with. The book store in "Diagon Alley" had a lamp that caught my attention. We went through areas of London that I never would have seen on other tours, or even walking around by myself. At ending at King's cross station and the opportunity to push the cart at Platform 9 3/4 was a fun ending! We also ate at the pub just above the Platform 9 3/4 bookstore and the food there was very good!
This tour was so great. Could have used a little sit down coffee break somewhere in the middle but other then that the tour guides were fantastic.
