What you'll do

For the month of Halloween, we will be adding additional dark themes (still suitable for kids)

Our tour is offered in English and German. 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.

We also give extra house points to those who show up in costume.

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

Our second time through this with a few new people. It was so interesting to see all the connections to the Harry Potter Books. David was lots of fun!

Artfully crafted experience through the streets of Edinburgh looking through the lens of the Harry Potter franchise and the trivia questions kept everyone engaged.

The "Halloween Special, Harry Potter Magic in Edinburgh Tour" was an excellent experience! My daughter and I joined together and she loved it. She is a Harry Potter fanatic. We learned so much from David and in a very engaging digital Edinburgh tour environment. So much fun!

This was one of our "team building" activities at work and it was a great one. I think we can all say we miss traveling, and Edinburgh WAS next on our list. This was a nice way to connect with co-workers, find out what their Hogwarts houses are, and compete a little bit by answering fun trivia questions. All while actually getting a pretty decent *virtual* tour of a beautiful city.
