We arrived a little late, so I did not get our tour guide's name, but he was excellent...funny and knowledgeable. I enjoyed it so much! My only complaint was with the tour instructions I received when I booked. It said to meet at the ticket office at Leicester Square. We thought it meant at the Tube station especially since you needed an Oyster ticket for the tour. Turns out we should have gone to a ticket office in Leicester Square above ground which was a very large area and without the help of the local police, we would have never found it, and missed the tour which would have really ticked me off. SO, please clarify the meet directions!!

We had a Scottish guide who was very funny and told us lots of extra facts about other movies as well as Harry Potter on our way around London. Lots of walking, so wear comfy shoes and bring your umbrella if it looks like rain, as the tour goes on! Also have a tube ticket for this tour.

I LOVED this tour. I believe our guide's name was Alex - but I've got Jetlag brain, so I may be off on that. He was really engaging, and the sites we went to were fantastic. Sites that were the inspirations for the locations in the movie/books, places JK was known to have visited and walked on her way to and from her job as she was writing Harry Potter - and of course, King's Cross! My favorite site was the inspiration for Knockturn Alley, the windows in that alley are absolutely gorgeous.

If you're a Harry Potter fan - you'll love this tour. I recommend Sunday Morning to take it, as the streets are quieter!
