Highly recommend to all the Harry Potter fans out there!! We had a lovely tour guide called Tom Mugglestone (very fitting name for the tour)! He was funny and provided so many great facts - not only about Harry Potter but about Edinburgh too. We were a group of 4 so the experience was discounted and was definitely worth the price! Also, I love the fact that the money went towards a great charity:)

This was a really insightful and interesting tour. There was lots of additional historical information, as well as the information about Harry Potter and J.K Rowling’s inspiration for writing in Edinburgh. It was also to wonderful to go on the tour at the same time as the festival. There is an excellent charitable ethos behind this tour also, which is why I initially chose to go on it.

Thomas was an enthusiastic and great host. The tour did feel a little long at times, and does meander away from Harry Potter to other Edinburgh sights and history - but if you’re looking for an alternative tour of the city, then definitely worth considering.
