Superb tour which I would highly recommend for anyone interested in sight seeing. You don’t have to be a confident cyclist to enjoy the tour as much of the route is on cycle paths. Our guide Patrick was friendly, informative and funny.

Very interesting and funny tour with Monica who was really a Harry Potter specialist. Also the time between one film location and the other was filled with many interesting details she told us. And to see the photos of the film exactly where the scenes were filmed was really great. So really recommendable!

Lottie was an excellent tour guide, apart from being a slytherin. You could tell she was a massive Harry Potter fan. She was so excited throughout the tour. Her knowledge was excellent and she made everyone feel included. The tour itself was very interesting and I learnt quite a lot of things I didn’t know, not just about Harry Potter, but about London and some of its buildings. We got off the coach a few times to explore further some things we couldn’t see from the coach.
