  • The walking tour was quite good, although I considered the group was far to large to keep up through the crowded streets, our guide confessed it was the largest group she had ever had. The talk was quite informative on a very shallow basis, vague connections to J K Rowling and no more. The tour was all over and finished in an hour although the sales talk when booking suggested two hours were needed for the tour, I did not consider the tour was terribly good value for money.

  • This tour was horrible, I would give it a zero if possible because almost 0 content was related to Harry Potter. I left before it was over. Guide seemed to know almost nothing about Harry Potter. Felt terrible for the kids on the walk. There was nothing magical about this. Skip at all costs.

  • Great tour for enthusiastic Harry Potter Fans! Be prepared to walk .

  • Tour guide was well informed, but the 2hr duration felt too long for the amount of content.

  • We didntlike it at all. It was a waste of time and money.

  • We did this tour on our first day in Edinburgh and it was a great way to get acclimated to the lay-out of the city. We were introduced to places that we would have had a hard time finding on our own and it was an enjoyable experience!

  • Only disappointment was not being taken to the Elephant House Cafe, tour guide talked about it but never took us there. we found the place on our own.
