What you'll do

IMPORTANT: Our tour is offered in English and German. Please use the "Show (more) dates" button to check the language.

Spanish and French tours are available on request.

Join David, Jule, Eden and Maria as we see the beautiful Scottish city of Edinburgh through the eyes of J.K Rowling. From her poor beginnings to a billionaire author.

Our tour is brilliant for solo travellers, families, birthday parties, children's parties, team building, and corporate events. For high profile events, ask about our premium tour.

First, we'll do our own Hogwarts House test for all the muggles. There will be a Harry Potter trivia competition between the houses, so all need to be sorted!

We'll start our tour of Edinburgh using moving images to keep the action fluid and accessible to people will all internet speeds. We'll show you the places where J.K Rowling drew her inspiration, such as the school believed to be the inspiration for Hogwarts, the shops that found their way into Diagon Ally, the graveyard where she got her characters' names and much, much more!

Along the way, we'll tell you about the inspiration for some of the most loved characters, and we'll finish with the final quiz to see which Hogwarts house wins.

If you have a favourite character, let us know! We also give extra house points to those who show up in costume.

Please message if you can’t find a suitable time.

David did an excellent job making our daughter’s 9th birthday magical! His tour was the perfect party activity for friends and family of all ages. He made it fun and interactive for both the Harry Potter enthusiasts and the novices. Highly recommend!!

Jule was a lot of fun and made it so interactive! Love that she showed us the big picture map and how things were connected, as well as street and interior pictures. Harry Potter fans will enjoy!

As a huge HP fan, I know the books very well and have read every "fun facts about Harry Potter" list on the internet. I still learned so much about the story's origin and JK Rowling's inspiration during this virtual tour! David was funny, engaging, and I loved the added trivia component to the tour. I have now added Edinburgh to my travel bucket list! Thank you, David!!
