Thoroughly enjoyed it. Guides were helpful and I loved that there was a mix of Harry Potter, other movies, and general London history facts.
We loved the tour - Alan was fun and friendly and good to our kids, and made the city come alive from a new perspective.
Absolutely wonderful tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable about Harry Potter and had us entertained from beginning till the end. Highly recommendable!
The guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. It was very cool to see some of the filming locations since I was unable to go to the actual studios. I thought they did a fantastic job with the wide range of ages on the tour approx 40 people - they were especially sweet with the children. Unlike a few people have noted, the guides were very careful about keeping the group together on the tube and did offer a restroom break. Be kind folks, don't forget to tip your guides!!
It was great tour, you gotta walk a lil bit but is worth it, also it gives you the local experience since you need to catch some trains and walk thru the market and streets, crossing nice bridges, etc.
I would highly recommend not only for HP fans but for anyone that wants to get around london and see some important landmarks closely.
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 :
