My husband and I decided to take this tour rather than the 7 hour day at warner brothers studio tour. We are super glad we did! This was a Great way to see the sights and learn some London history. This tour is great for Harry Potter fans and history buffs. I recommend this tour to anyone.

Chose this tour for my son and ended up enjoying it myself. Our tour guide was full of facts but more importantly was so enthusiastic about Harry Potter that he drew you in.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

This tour was outstanding. Everything Harry Potter and so much interesting information. Our guide, Denny I think, was very engaging, knowledgeable and kept our group comfortably on pace to maximize the experience. The quality of Viator's tours are consistently excellent. We will always look here first when traveling.

This was a fantastic tour! My 2 daughters13 and 10 loved it! Our guide was wonderful! Even my mom who really isn't a Harry Potter fan enjoyed it because we saw parts of London that you wouldn't normally see. It is a ton of walking so if you have someone who isn't very fast they may have trouble keeping up. I would definitely recommend buying a full day train ticket before you start the tour as you do ride a few trains while on the tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Great tour, and very informative guides. A lot of information not only about Harry Potter, but London in general. A great way to start a vacation in London, and get a good overview of the city. But be warned - when they say walking tour, they mean it - there is a lot of walking. I think the guide said about 5 miles total.
