This is not so much a tour of the city of Edinburgh, it's more a tour of some of the sites that inspired J. K. Rowling to write the book. It is not a tour of the city.

The tour was brilliant! I booked it for myself (who grew up reading HP) my daughter and husband. It was so interesting to see all the locations that inspired J.K. Our tour guide Sophia was very friendly and knowledgeable. She showed us historical places of Edinburgh while describing their connection to the series. She even took our family pictures in a beautiful spot with castle view. It was a truly magical tour.

Krystal was our tour guide and she was great fun. So knowledgeable. Got everyone involved in the Harry Potter quiz. I had an interest in Harry Potter before, by no means an expert but learned so much. Great to see where Rowling got lots of her ideas and names from for the series. Definitely recommend.

Thanks to our tourguide, Amy, for a great walking tour of Edinburgh featuring the highlights of Harry Potter and inspirations for JK Rowling. I normally shy away from walking tours while traveling, but I opted for this tour for my daughter who is a huge Harry Potter fan. I'm so glad I did because she loved the tour and it was a highlight of our trip to Edinburgh. Amy created a fun and participative atmosphere amongst the Harry Potter fans- and expertly fielded the eager, younger participants (like my children). The tour was easily walkable for my 9 and 6 year old. Highly recommend.
