It was an amazing experience and the tour guy John was very friendly and made it fun . I can't wait to go back to London.

Waste of time - Avoid it at all costs!

The tour is just that the guide walks with you, shows you spot where the film was shot. You have to be well informed of all the books and have read them thoroughly. The guide was not fun nor funny as I read in other reviews. My kids aged 9 and 6 were bored in the first 15 minutes although they loved the movie and watched it. If you have time, go to the actual studios 1.5h outside London to do the real thing, or then nothing- but don't do the walking tour. Not worth the time or the money very disappointing experience!

Our tour guide, John from Edinburgh, arrived 10 minutes before our tour, right on time and waited a few of minutes for a couple who were late. Then we were off! The tour was fun, including sites seen in Harry Potter movies. Well, sights in the movies, but a bit changed here and there. I'm sorry we didn't get into Diagon Alley and Gringott's Bank, but we were really close, seeing the the outside of the bank and the oldest wizarding shop in London! John is informed, informative, articulate, funny, careful and stocked with tablet scenes of the movies which he showed us as we went around to the different sites. A fun tour for Potter fans, and the best tour I've been on for any reason. Thanks, John!

Although Valerie was personable and knowledgeable we were extremely disappointed with this tour. Based on the reviews and the video that I watched about the tour we were under the impression that we would be riding on the Thames, of which we did not.
This tour was somewhat informative, however with the amount of people that were booked in the tour it was extremely difficult to hear Valerie when she was speaking.
I would have rated lower, however we did get to see some things we would not have on our own, so therefore we feel as this rating is adequate.

Not worth going on. It was poorly organized, no signs as to who was the tour guide...just kind of found each other while standing around the meeting area. The tour guide was pleasant but the actual tour was not very informative. A lot was just speculation without any facts. He also pointed out a lot of stuff that had nothing to do with Harry Potter. No one told us we needed an Oyster card because we were going on the Underground. Good thing we had money with us for this. They also didn’t tell us that you would be left at a different area from where the tour started...having to figure out how to get back on our own.

we booked this tour as a birthday gift for my youngest child, we had emergency on the same day which will cause a delay of 15-20 min. we wanted to call them and inform that we will be a pit delayed or if we can arrange for any alternative, despite our calls there was no reply at all!! only answer machine which was not helpful. emails sent and replies received from aviator which they provided another contacts but again No replies.
now we are leaving UK, we lost everything including what we paid!

Not sure if it was the guides or the itinerary but this trip fell short of my expectations. Being the only Americans in the group we were sometimes used as the butt of some poorly timed jokes but again could be the personalities of the guides we randomly received. Ok but not a don't miss
