What you'll do

*Fridays @ 8.30pm EST/5.30pm PST are strictly 18+ ONLY*

Ever wondered how they made Hagrid look so tall? Could you pay off your mortgage with a single Harry Potter book? Or why some portraits at Hogwarts might look a little familiar?

Come with me on a virtual broomstick tour of London where we will find the locations that brought the Boy Wizard to life on screen, and behind-the-scenes stories from both the films and the books. With professionally filmed footage and some very special effects I'll make you feel like you're right here with me!

We'll first take a broomstick ride to the real entrance to Diagon Alley, before we pop down to see the Ministry of Magic, and floo powder over to the magic barrier at King's Cross station. I'll also share some of the weirdest London facts I've learned along the way

Brush up on your wizarding world knowledge as there will be trivia to see which house wins the House Cup

All ages are welcome, suitable for anything from school trips to bachelorette parties. Recommended age 10+

All kids must be accompanied by at least one paying adult on screen per booked group

This tour is presented by a quick-talking Scottish stand-up comedian, so a conversational grasp of English is essential

One slot per INDIVIDUAL watching, not per screen. Strictly one person per slot, no exceptions

Feel free to request date/times.

Hi! We're Mark and Ryan, and we're both award winning comedians and massive Harry Potter nerds. Our London walking tour is the highest rated Potter tour on Airbnb (over 2000 5* star reviews), and now we're bringing it to your living room via the magic of the internet.

We've been taking guests on Harry Potter related walking tours for over eight years now. Regaling people with behind-the-scenes tales of the movies, as well as walking in the footsteps of JK Rowling to try to find the real life inspirations for her magical series. Our goal is to make sure everyone goes away with a new interesting fact, whether they're a Hogwarts first year or a prefect, as well as a new friend... so long as you're happy being friends with a Slytherin (Mark) or a Hufflepuff (Ryan).

We booked this for a work team event and it was wonderful. It was something new and different in this virtual environment and everyone really enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend it.

Really fun, virtual experience to get us "out of our daily surroundings" for just a bit. Was a great chance to have some fun time together as a work team, and very cool and interesting to hear all the behind the scenes and "making of" Harry Potter stories. Mark's an excellent storyteller and even great at trying to make sure all are engaged and enjoying themselves. Highly Recommend, and thanks for your time, Mark!

We did this as a team work event since we can’t get together in person due to COVID restrictions. None of us were really sure what to expect out of the experience, but most of us are Harry Potter fans, so we decided to give this a try since we’d already exhausted most of the more traditional virtual events like trivia and happy hours. We had an amazing time! We spent much of the 90 minute experience laughing and really enjoyed the fun trivia competition along the way. Mark has such a great personality and his wonderful Scottish accent makes his jokes all the better . Would highly recommend this experience to bring some excitement and magic into your COVID quarantine!

Absolutely fantastic! Great quips, engaging discussion, and excellent use of the oxford comma! Even for the most avid Harry Potter fans, the whole tour was full of new and interesting info. Mark also gave amazing suggestions for other fan-favorite HP content. Thanks for a magical evening!

This tour was so fun. Even if you're not the biggest Potter-Head in the world, I would absolutely recommend it. We toured with Mark, who was funny, engaging, an excellent storyteller, and kept everyone on the call involved throughout. As big Potter fans from the US, there were a lot of fun facts that we hadn't learned yet about the filming in London. 10/10 would grab a pint with Mark (and take this exact tour again)

This was the most fun I’ve had all of quarantine! Mark was so much fun to hang out with and did an amazing job including everyone, making everyone laugh, and sharing fun Harry Potter trivia. I’d recommend this experience to anyone: whether you’re a major HP fan or just a casual watcher, it will be an awesome experience. Thanks Mark!
