Loved it! Tom was our guide. He was wonderful very knowledgeable about London history as well as Harry Potter!
Did the tour with Tom. He was knowledgeable, very descriptive and overall made the tour fun and relaxing. Definitely reccommend!
Enjoyed this tour with john as our guide. My daughter 7 has already spotted where we stood near Scotland yard and said, we stood there! I know I could have walked around the sites myself, but it was more fun to have john as our guide and hear lots of interesting nuggets about harry potter and London. Thanks :

Tom met us at Leicester Square and we were off on a fabulous and very interesting tour. Tom was great. He was very informative and fun. He knew so much about Harry Potter. It was a fun tour and we learned lot and got to see some great HP places. Then we had our picture taken at Platform 9 3/4.
Would DEFINTELY RECOMMEND. TOM WAS AWESOME!!
Great friendly experience walking around London and learning about scenes from films as well as other London knowledge. Jon and Jamie were fantastic!
Great day out.
Tom was a great and engaging tour guide! He knew lots of cool facts about London and several of the Harry Potter filming locations. The tour itself was amazing, as I got to see some parts of the city I probably wouldn't have found on my own. I would definately recommend it. :
A must for any Harry Potter fanatic! Also a great way to see various sights in and around London that you might not have heard of.

Very interesting for both, kids and parents. Wonderful and funny guides made the trip more special. Thanks a lot!
Family had a great time with Tom and Allan! It turned out to be a rather large group but the two of them handled it very well! They were knowledgable, entertaining and overall very helpful. My kids were chatting with both during walks in between sites and thought they were the best tour guides ever! Harry Potter fans will definitely enjoy! For clarity - this is not the studio tour. But this is a great walking tour to see both Harry Potter filming sites and London in general. Be sure to bring your tube cards!
