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.
Great guides, super funny, informative and loads of energy. Kept the tour moving at a good pace without rushing. They were interactive with the guests and really made the tour very enjoyable.
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.
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.
We got to see some places that were referenced in the books and movies. It was fun and exciting.

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.
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.
Fun and informative. Be prepared to do a lot of walking and jump on the tube a couple of times.
This was fun and informative, my daughter was excited to see the places that were in the Harry Potter movie. Make sure you have a transit card as we rode the tube twice on our tour. It is a walking tour and we definitely walked - for those who are not accustomed to walking they were tired at the end.
We loved it, the Scotish guy was a great guide! We learned a lot about the film location ideas and also about London. We recommend it!
Extremely enjoyable by a family of three generations celebrating an 18th birthday of an avid Harry Potter fan. Yes highly recommended.
Great way to see London and hear facts about Harry Potter films. We went to some great little hidden places that inspired J K Rowling. Tour guide Sarah was fabulous, not only gave us info about the film's but lots of incidental facts about London. We loved the chewing gum art on Millenium Bridge.
My family of 5 with kids ages 10, 13 and 13 had a ball on the London Harry Potter Walking Tour. Our guide, Sarah Jefferson, did an amazing job of showing us Ms. Rowling's inspirations throughout daily London. We covered a lot of ground in just shy of 3 hours and our attention was captured the whole time. Sarah did a great job of engaging the group, but especially the kids, throughout the whole tour. She was knowledgeable and fun! A bonus of doing this early in your London trip - Sarah took us to some cool places that we were not even aware existed, that we were then able to go back and visit later during our trip.
Very fun, cool tour with two guides trading off. As others have said, it's also a great way to see a lot of London with Thames cruise taking you across the river, and underground ride to Platform 9 and 3/4. We did this on our first day and immediately became comfortable with using the tube for the rest of the trip. A must for youngsters (and us older folks too) who are Harry Groupies! It was an all ages crowd.
There were three of us on this tour including our granddaughter (age 14) who was the main reason we took this tour. We found the Guides excellent and they kept us interested and moved the tour along. There was a lot of information and the pace was good. We got some insights and later also took in the Studio tour. She took a lot of pictures and appeared to be satisfied. We would recommend the tour to anyone interested in the subject of Harry Potter and J K Rowling.
perfect for die hard harry potter fans. Tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable.
The locations themselves are nothing special, but the story behind each site used in the movie is what's worthwhile with this tour.
Allan was an excellent tour guide. Amusing and very informative.
Fun..fun...fun.....I knew my kids would love this but in reality the wife and I enjoyed it just as much. Excellent guide, excellent tour...really good value for money. Thank you!!!
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.
