The tour was great fun! we enjoyed seeing all the sights and our guide knew alot about everything. I wish the tour was longer because we were so rushed and some of the areas (an open air market, books shops) would have been fantastic to take some time and maybe pick up something...

Now this is a walking tour and that's exactly what you do is walk for 2 1/2 hours!!! So if you are ok with that then this tour is fine. The tour guide brings you all around London and shows you streets, buildings and areas where filming took place.

The walk was fun and informative. We saw some parts of London that we wouldn't have otherwise.

We recently did the Harry Potter walking tour of London. The trip was my granddaughter's idea and I had no idea how much London featured in the films. The tour took 2.5hrs and included a boat trip on the Thames and a short trip on the underground to Kings Cross Station to see platform 9 and three quarters. The trip takes in not just areas associated with the Harry Potter films but also other points of interest along the way such as the Globe Theatre, the Monument and Borough Markets. All 3 of us enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to others. Our granddaughter was delighted.

Our tour guide keeps the groups' spirit up despite the weather and shares Harry potter facts that are not common knowledge even to its readers.

Our guide was informative and fun! The best part of this tour was getting to see parts of London one would not ordinarily see as a tourist. The "off the beaten track" gems were lovely. We can't wait to see all the movies again to remember our tour. Thank you

This tour (at noon) was excellent for Harry Potter fans and our guide did warn us that if you are a fan then it's 2.5 hours of walking but if not then it will feel like 5 years. Our guide even wore the sorting hat while he took us around. We were able to see many places that were seen in the HP film series and our guide supported these places with pictures from the movie. In addition to the HP areas in the movie, we were able to see other landmarks and places famous to London. I would take this tour to supplement the bus tours as you get to walk into different areas that the tour buses can't get to. We ended at the 9 3/4 platform although it was little disappointing at the end as it does not look exactly like the sign in the movie that had the 'hogwart's express' on it. I did not give this tour 5 stars although if it had half ratings, I would have marked it with a 4.5. I think this tour would have been much better had it ended at a store devoted specifically to selling Harry Potter items and that would be the only reason that I would not give it the full five stars. Otherwise, the guide was great, the places that were found in the movies were exciting to see for a true fan, and you really don't feel the 2.5 hours of walking until you wake up the next morning. I would definitely recommend wearing comfortable shoes for this one.

Great walk till we reached the tube station, had no idea we needed to go on the tube to kings cross station, i ended up paying an extra £15.00 for a return.

We had an excellent guide and the tour takes you to places that are off the beaten track so very enjoyable and worthwhile

Our walking tour was a fun way to not only see many points of interest for Harry Potter fans, but to explore London on foot. Our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable, and took us to plenty of filming sites and spots of inspiration for JK Rowling and the film directors. A fun morning for a family with teenagers.

Probably you should join if you are a Harry Potter fan. Very sincere tour guide, but it would be better if London is not renovating everywhere!
