What To Expect

Get acquainted with the fantastical landmarks of Harry Potter’s world with this thematic walking tour through London. Meet your guide in Leicester Square, wind through London, and listen to loads of Harry Potter trivia about the filming locations.

Stroll through Diagon Alley where Harry purchased all his magical school supplies in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Then visit the entry to the Leaky Cauldron, the popular wizarding pub. Walk over the Millennium Bridge, the site of Lord Voldemort’s brutal muggle attack in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

Continue along the Thames River from the Embankment to Tate Modern Museum to view key London sites that inspired J.K. Rowling’s tales. Experience the world through the author’s eyes as you see elements of muggle London spun into a magical patchwork.

Then travel by tube (make sure you have a valid Travelcard for Zone 1) to King’s Cross, where you’ll visit Platform 9¾. Stand where Harry, Ron, and Hermoine did as they waited for the Hogwarts Express, and pose for a photo with a disappearing luggage trolley. Your tour ends in the afternoon at King’s Cross Station.

Harry Potter tour's best guide
Yolanda_P, Feb 2023
The tour guide Ana was thorough and personable. I will definitely recommend this tour to my friends and family in the States.

Dana_M, Dec 2022
As many other reviews have stated, our tour was also canceled day off. Still waiting on refund. Have had good experiences with other viator tours, not sure why this one gets canceled so frequently.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Dana, Sorry to hear it. Please request Viator for the refund, they must provide it.
You will not be able to...
Sheila_D, Nov 2022
You will not be able to relate to the tour if you don’t know anything about the Harry Potter movie … it was just random places that they shoot the movie
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Dear Sheila this tour is defiantly for Harry Funs, but hopefully you have enjoyed some London citysightseeing.
Worst Tour
Joanna_P, Oct 2022
We never did go to the pub that inspired the leaky cauldron (description said we would). The tour guide was too quiet and could not recall characters names and events (guides should be fans of the books/movies). The tour abruptly ended at Kings Cross Station even though the description of the tour said that it would end back at Leicester Square where it started. False advertising. Waste of money.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
We are so sorry, we have payed attention to your review and we hired new tour guides.
Tour guide did not show up
Niels_K, Apr 2022
Tourguide did not show up for the tour. After we called the operators ourselves they said he had an accident and was on his way to the hospital. Told us we would get a refund and that they would confirm this in writing but did not receive any email yet.
Buy tickets somewhere else!
Alisa_M, Apr 2022
We waited from 11:15-12:25 exactly where the meeting point was. The tour was supposed to start at 12:00! We finally gave up. Later I received an email telling me that the tour guide said we were no shows and our only recourse was to attend the next tour which was after we will have left London! I replied that this was unsatisfactory and never received a response. I will never use viator again.
Unfortunately a scam. No...
Lene_L, Apr 2022
Unfortunately a scam. No guide showed up. Terrible service from Best Tours. No information or anything. Do not book it! Not worth it.
leanne_m, Dec 2021
Was cancelled on Sunday morning but wasn't told till I rung to find out how to get to meeting point and it was a birthday gift so myself and friends travelled from South Wales and didn't get to go on tour
Alan's magical tour of London
James_M, Sep 2021
The tour was informative and interesting and the tour guide was very pleasant and helpful we found out some interesting facts about London and Harry Potter that we did not know
Wakas_A, Aug 2021
AVOID! DO NOT FALL FOR IT. FRAUD! Totally unprofessional and misleading. Firstly our tour guide was very unprofessional giving us little introduction to the tour or information about Harry Potter. Secondly her way of showing historical locations within London were to show grainy footage clips of Harry Potter on her phone and state we do not need to visit that today as you've seen it on the phone. In fact majority of the locations were shown on the phone and the same was stated that we do not need to visit them today as you've now seen them. Thirdly, the "tour guide" hardly spoke, and when she did, she was so quiet that no one could hear her. Fourthly, the tour guide was so eager to cut our tour short, she stated due to seeing most places on her phone, the remaining tour will only take 25mins. At which case I ended it in within 15-20mins as it was clear I had been scammed. There are many other reasons to ilustate why this is a complete fraud. I have contacted Viator for a refund. I am awaiting to hear back.

The tour guide was hard to understand, spoke softly and I think we knew more about the movies than she did. She could not have been nicer but we didn't get much out of it.

A walking tour with an engaged guide.
Ivo_V, Jul 2021
The guide was very engaged but the content of the tour was rather poor. We saw some nice places in London.

Guide didn’t show up
Amit_K, Sep 2020
It was my sons birthday and we had booked this. Although there was a chance it may not happen due to Covid-19, viator took the payment so we thought it was on and trekked to London. Waited over 30 minutes and nobody showed. Called the number and the lady who answered claimed she had nothing to do With the tour. Terribly disappointed

I bought a voucher for my Dad to go on this tour he said he arrived early and waited for 90mins. No one turned up to take the tour. I've been on a similar tour with a different company. Would not book with this company again.

Awesome tour with an awesome guide
Arlener_T, Mar 2020
This ended up being a private tour for me and my friends because it was a weekday and no one else booked, which made the experience even better. Anna was a fantastic guide and her enthusiasm was contagious. I love that she really talked to us and it seemed like her suggestions and sights were tailored to what she understood about us. She was awesome and I would recommend this tour to any and everyone!
Very bad
Kenz_V, Mar 2020
Very bad; - we spent less then the time planned - we didn’t do activities that was promised - the speaker wasn’t enthusiastic at all - the speaker wasn’t clear when she spoke
