This had to be one of my favorite tours I’ve ever taken. The tour guide was knowledgeable, witty, and kept the group engaged through fun trivia questions. I would definitely go on the same tour again. Thank you Jule 👍

Fantastic tour. Our guide, Jen, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. My son, who is 12, loved it. Would highly recommend. Even a spot of rain didn't spoil our experience.

This was the first walking tour my group of three had experienced. Jane the tour guide was incredible and her storytelling and knowledge of both Edinburgh and Harry Potter was top notch. We all thoroughly enjoyed this and it has changed all our opinions on walking tours. Would definitely recommend if you’re a Harry Potter fan, as ones ourselves we were kept on our toes with the trivia questions which we loved. The cemetery part of the tour is amazing and should be experienced by all.
