The studio tour was great if you have seen the Potter movies. The bus ride was long and uncomfortable and put time pressure on everyone. The tour guide was friendly for the one second that he was there. The tour itself has 3 sections with the first section being the most elaborate. Because does not let you go backwards it was very hard to time ourselves. We would have spent more time in the first section if we had realized. The kids absolutely loved every minute of it but It could have been even better. All in all, do it. But plan ahead since all the tour company provides is a bus ride.

This is awe-inspiring for both kids and adults. However, the instructions for the meeting place were misleading. The voucher indicated that the nearest stations is either Victoria or Sloane Square. Since our hotel is nearer Sloane, we went down there only to find out it's right beside Victoria. Because of this, we got left by the bus. We had to find our own way to the studio.

It was even more than I was expecting. We had plenty of time to see everything on the set. It was a fantastic experience.

This tour was amazing . Everything was superb. The gift shop lacked a little something as everything was plastered Warner Bros all over it . We missed our bus in the morning because our cab driver didn't know where to go. Golden Tours was pretty unaccommodating and rude to us.

My son (age 10) and I loved it!!! We enjoyed the bus ride out and back, though some commentary about the movies might have been useful on the bus ride out. The exhibits were well done and educational. We did not even stop for lunch as we learned about how the movies were made as well as exploring the different sets developed for the movies. Well done!

This tour was more than we expected it to be. We were very happy with our time at the studio. There was a long wait to get into the first exhibition which was a video. I wouldn't have wasted so much time getting first in line because we just stood there and waited for the line to fill before letting us all file in. That took about 30 min. I wish we had just browsed around the gift shop first then got in line because our time was cut down by 30 min. since we were with a tour bus. But the overall tour was fantastic. We didn't use the hand held audio guide and didn't feel a need to. Everything we saw, we recognized as being a part of the movie set. There was so much to take in. The photos are only a fraction of what you really get to see at the studio. It was well worth the trip. The only thing that would make it better is if the cast were there.

If you are a fan, this is a MUST DO; if not a fan this will make you one! Smooth, easy coach ride, plenty of time for a quick lunch at the studio cafe and then about 3.5 hours to wander around studios J and K (sound familiar?) to see how the magic was done. Buckingham Palace Road pick-up and drop-off point is right on top of Victoria Station so it extremely easy to get to and from no matter where you are staying in London.

We took our nephew to London for a week. The Harry Potter tour was his favorite of all the things we did! In fact, we all enjoyed it. From seeing the sets and props, to drinking Butterbeer, to buying Honeydukes' candy in the gift shop; we had a magical day!
