    The tour was absolutely fantastic! Honestly couldn’t have asked for a better way to cap off our trip in Edinburgh Monique our tour guide was unbelievable! She knew everything and anything not just about Harry Potter and J.K Rowling but Edinburgh it’s self a must if visiting!

    Amazing ! This was the second time, I did the tour this time it was with two wonderful people, Harrison and Claire, who made it fun with quiz and questions, I’m a hufflepuff so I was glad to be sorted by the sorting hat they had us pull out cards with the houses on it so I was happy.
