    My partner and I had a wonderful time and experience with Kieran as our tour guide, on Thursday the 16th of June. He was so informative and helpful providing us with so much information and even gave us recommendations to other activities, food and pub places in the area. We cannot thank him enough. A massive asset to your team. Many thanks from the couple from Dublin.

    An easy 2-hour walk through parts of Edinburgh Old Town learning about all things Harry Potter. Our guide, Kieran, made sure everyone felt welcome as he answered any and all questions. If you are a fan of Harry Potter you'll not want to miss this tour! And even if you are not, be careful - you may well become one.

    Alex was our guide and he was fantastic! He was so enthusiastic and really got everyone involved. He told us lots of ‘secrets’ about how the Harry Potter series evolved and also quite a few lesser known facts about Edinburgh. I’d definitely recommend this tour to any one, Harry Potter fan or not!
