Our tour guide Anaia was super.... Why do all reviews have to have a certain number of characters? This could be changed for the future.

Good interaction with the tour guide showed us the location and linked it to the HP films, good value for money, walked lots but it was enjoyable. Tour guide was called Pearla and we thoroughly enjoyed her obsession with the films and the quick quiz's she gave

Unsere Gruppenführerin (Donnatella) war sehr freundlich und hat gute Laune und sehr viel wissen verbreitet. Ich würde die Tour sofort wieder buchen und auch weiter empfehlen.

La experiencia muy buena y el guía fenomenal pero tuvimos que esperar muchísimo tiempo para cruzar el Tamesis. Eso sí fue muy cansado

Jakob was a superb tour guide. He made the experience fun and engaging. The HP-based quiz and house teams was an excellent feature. We got to see some great sights in London and the Uber boat trip was great. This is suitable for any Harry Potter fan, regardless of age. The booking, through Headout, was simple and I'd definitely use them again! Bravo!! 👏

Visit Some of the Most Iconic Sets of Harry Potter with an Expert

Once you meet up with your friendly and efficient guide outside the Palace Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, and are joined by the rest of your tour group, the game will be afoot! First and foremost, you will find out which house you belong in, and after providing you with a brief introduction, you will make your way to the many different locations on your itinerary. Throughout your tour, your guide will be providing you with interesting commentary and tidbits from the movies but also interesting facts about locations you pass and if they have any connections to pop culture or movies aside from Harry Potter.

Visit Some of the Most Incredible Locations from Harry Potter

Your visit shall cover Gringott's Bank, Platform 9 and 3/4, Daniel Radcliffe's school, 900-year-old Clink Prison, Sherlock Holmes' Pub, Trafalgar Square and many more! You will then get to visit other landmark locations like where the battle in the sky took place at the beginning of Deathly Hallows when the seven Potters were trying to make their way to safety and the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron, which marked Harry's entrance into the magical world. You will also get to walk over the bridge the Death Eaters destroyed at the beginning of the Half-Blood Prince, signaling Voldemort's return to power. Perhaps the best photo opportunity will present itself at the last location on your itinerary, marking the end of your walking tour, King's Cross Station.
