Walk in the footsteps of your favorite wizards (and witches) around Muggle London. Your Harry Potter enthusiast guide will be armed with weird and wonderful trivia all along the way.  Meet your guide and start your adventure by finding out which Hogwarts House you belong in. Compete against other Houses in an interactive quiz as you see the sites that inspired J.K. Rowling, from Shakespeare's Globe to the London alleys that inspired Knockturn Alley.

Even see the bridge destroyed by the Death Eaters in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince".  For part of your guided tour, choose to either take the London Underground or a short boat trip down the Thames.

Fantastic tour. Loads of Harry Potter facts with a couple of extras about London too. Our guide, Perla, was brilliant. Fun and enthusiastic. She made sure everyone in the group got on and off the tube ok. The quiz was a nice touch and created a bit of fun. We followed it by visting Mina Lima and King's Cross on our own. A brilliant day for the HP mad birthday girl and friends.

Our guide, Tom, was obviously very knowledgeable about Harry Potter and the city, but his enthusiasm, wit, and kindness really made this tour one of the highlights of our whole trip. My sweetheart and I can be a bit shy, so this was a great way to coax us into visiting both sides of the Thames, hopping on the tube, and getting eyes on a more bustling part of London. Our only regret is that we scheduled the tour the last day of our trip instead of the beginning.

My granddaughter and I went on the tour and really enjoyed it. The guide was knowledgable and engaging. The pace was manageable and the rour was just the right length. We loved seeing some of the inspiration behind the books and film locations and hearing interesting facts about places we encountered along the way.
