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.

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.
