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!

The taxi ride through London was great.
King's Cross's Platform 9 3/4 (with the current renovation of the station) is an incredible joke. We were expecting to "get" to dress in robes and that didn't happen... and the biggest deal was that half the time the driver/tour guide was answering his phone and telling everyone how busy he was going to be with all of the tours he had to take care of and we were left in the middle of town because he was SO busy that he didn't have time to drop us anywhere else of his next tour would be let down. His humor was great and finding out about his life was a redeeming feature, but I was left with more of a feeling that we were putting him out by taking up his valuable time.
