Famed as the birthplace of the boy wizard, Edinburgh is home to many Harry Potter-themed tours. While big group tours can leave visitors feeling rushed with questions unanswered, this private tour guarantees a personalized, and customizable, experience that goes at your own pace and gives you plenty of opportunities to ask the entertaining guides all of your burning Potter questions.
  • Explore Edinburgh with a guide: The maze-like city is easy to get lost in
  • Customizable: Adapt the tour to your own interests
  • Private tour: Guarantees a more personalized experience
  • Enhance your Potter knowledge: Guides can answer your questions

We had a wonderful morning with Roshiun (sorry if I misspelled your name). She was very friendly and informative. We learned quite a lot about Edinburgh, JK Rowling and the Harry Potter trail. Don't hesitate to book this tour, it was well worth the money!

Our guide, Caroline, was absolutely fabulous! We had such a wonderful time and learned so much. We were sad when it ended. I’d recommend it to any Harry Potter fan!

Had a great tour with Richard. He was very knowledgeable and took time to answer any questions. We booked the private tour so was only us which was great.
Magical experience!

My kids rate Sam 10/5 - raving reviews from budding Harry Potter enthusiasts. They loved visiting the old graveyard and seeing familiar names on the gravestones but also loved visiting the original Diagon Alley. Sam quizzed us, awarded house points, and told great jokes and stories. They learnt new information and were able to share their own knowledge with an incredibly knowledgeable Harry Potter guide!
