    My husband and I had a great time on this tour! Loved getting to learn more about J. K. Rowling, her experiences as an author, and lots of HP insight. Our tour guide, Kiernan, was very personable, energetic and helpful. On top of being an expert for this tour, he gave us a great recommendation for lunch. Would recommend for any HP fans or supporters interested in learning more of the backstory.

    Kieran was absolutely wonderful! He was energetic, enthusiastic and engaging the entire time. His Harry Potter knowledge was incredible and the trivia game kept us involved throughout. Not only was he incredibly nice, but he provided personal suggestions for after the tour if we were looking for somewhere and any other relevant information (not harry potter) along the walk. Overall amazing tour!

    Harry Potter almost passed me by, but not my 29 year old on our way back to Blighty, we stayed a night in Edinburgh and I booked us on this guided tour. Kieran (23 yrs old), was very professional, entertaining and clearly an HP aficionado. Very entertaining 2 hours where I learned a lot about HP and JKR, but also found it a good way to see the sights in Edinburgh. Excellent value. thanks Kieran!
