Caroline (our tour guide) was absolutely fantastic - she was really fun & very informative! I would recommend this tour to Harry Potter fans & newbies alike - never having watched one of the films, I enjoyed it just as much as my family members who love HP! Lots of info about the history of York as well as lots of Harry Potter references! We’d definitely recommend doing this - you won’t regret it!

A really magical experience!

I didn't realise how beautiful York is, and I feel like I know loads about it now! The whole city is like the film set for Harry Potter too, so all the games and reenactments made me feel like i was in the movies! Strongly recommend this one, so cheap too!

Loose connections to the film. Enthusiastic delivery. Well organised. Needed more content. Turned into a history of York tour.
