Highly recommended! It's worth every penny because the tour included not just shooting locations but also places that inspired the books/JK. Hannah Weasley is really an HP expert. Her energy was the same until the end of the tour which is amazing.

This tour is the best in London and our tour guide (Alex Scamander) was superb & clearly should have had a role in Harry Potter!

Kinda H

it was absolutely brilliant. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The kids were over the moon but so were the adults!

Amanda S

Fantastic day out, our guide was fab and my son said he didn't want it to be over! Would highly recommend to anyone!

John Lupin, the very excellent Tour for Muggles, made my stay in London a little more magical. I'm a potterhead, started reading the books at a young age, obsessed about the movies, and spend more than I should on merch. This walking tour was amazing, engaging, and informative! 394 points!

We had Ellie as our guide and it was great.it's a lovely mix of harry potter facts and behind the scenes stories from both books and movies. Sprinkled in are several sightseeing places and some fun facts of London as well as other movies. Ellie did a great job and gave us a jovial and magical experience of London

My friend was visiting from Australia who loves Harry Potter, so I googled tours around london and found this! Amazing price and very attentive emails about everything we needed to know. The tour itself was brilliant, our tour guide Ellie Lovegood was full of enthusiasm and made the whole experience so enjoyable and fun! The tour was fact filled not just with Harry Potter facts so anyone would love it really! Honestly I think everyone should do this, can't praise it enough!

Jennifer H

This tour was AMAZING! The great Ellie Lovegood (distant cousin of Luna, of course!) was a wonderful guide. She made sure that everyone in the tour was comfortable and taken care of. She also took the time to learn about each person on the tour, which made the experience extra special. The pace was great and none of the walks between stops were overly long. It was wonderful seeing some of the sites that aren’t on ‘every other HP tour’ out there. I would even recommend this tour to those not ‘into’ the HP universe (like parents or significant others with a HP freak in the family) as there is plenty to see and hear about that is also interesting not in relation to the series. In summary, it was an engaging experience with just the perfect amount of history, folklore, magic, and, of course, Harry Potter!

Brittany M

Amazing tour! Great price with it! Our tour guide was Steph Black and she did amazing! Got to see so many great things and publicly display my Harry Potter fandom! HIGHLY recommend!

orla o

The tour was magical!! pottering around with scott/daniel radcliffe was great craic, recommend it to anyone who appreciates the wonder that HP is x

As a true Harry Potter nerd, I really enjoyed the tour, and with the sheer enthusiasm Greta had as a guide, we managed to not mind the cold as we traipsed through London looking at all of the Harry Potter-y sites! What made the tour even more fun for me was to be able to discuss some of the more obscure fan theories with Greta as we walked! I've lived in London for about 3 months now, and walked by some of the places we visited today so many times before, but, only after this tour did I realise the significance these places had with respects to a book/movie series that is very close to my heart. Cheers, Muggle Tours! I'm sure I'll tell all my HP obsessed friends about you guys!

We really enjoyed our office party outing with Greta, to explore the world of Harry Potter in the London Bridge area. Greta was an excellent guide, full of interesting anecdotes and with a lovely animated manner, making sure everyone felt involved and at ease. She gave fascinating insight into the filming and development of Harry Potter on screen, and fired all our imaginations as we looked with new eyes at familiar places. Thanks Muggle Tours, I am sure we will all be recommending you.

Simon B

A great afternoon out for us and our 8 year old daughter. Lots of interesting sights and information and Steph was a great guide.

Karoline W

The tour was great fun! It was a perfect mixture between seeing real-filming locations, hearing facts about various actors and the integration of all participants. Steph was a well prepared and enthusiastic guide! You do not even have to be a hard-core Harry-Potter fan you will also enjoy the fact that you get to know very exciting places/streets you have never seen before. I will definitely recommend the tour to my friends!!!!

Nancy L

This tour was fantastic!  Our tour guide (Scott) was knowledgeable and very entertaining!  The magic of Harry Potter was found everywhere, and it was fun to receive additional background information about the movie we wouldn't have found out about otherwise.  Seeing London through this tour was a huge plus!  Thank you so much for the magical adventure!

Kathy L

We just got back from a quick but wonderful time in London, and one of our highlights was absolutely the walking tour. Great insights, great places to go, wonderful fun facts to hear about Harry Potter and JK Rowlings. Our tour guide Scott, was energetic, enthusiastic and kept us moving and quite interested! We loved it and highly recommend it for anyone!

Christiane

The tour was great, especially for Harry Potter fans, but also for normal" muggles. Caitlin knew lots of interesting details about the films, about the books and about J.K. Rowling. We got to magical places in London that you wouldn't normally go to. We can definitely recommend the tour.

Stephen

The Muggle Tour was an excellent excursion, very enlightening and good value. Both adults and kids enjoyed the tour, discovering new parts of London and learning interesting and amusing facts on the making of the Harry Potter films and other British made movies, Caitlin was an enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very entertaining guide. We would definitely recommend to others.

Nicholas Carrigy

It was rainy and windy; however, there er a lot of interesting places and facts presented by the guide which made this tour very enjoyable. The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

PamelaJWC

We did a Muggletour for my daughter's 11th birthday and it did not disappoint. All the girls thoroughly enjoyed the tour and came away on a high. Hana is a delightful and attentive tour guide who really engaged the children. The walk took in some great London sights and I would thoroughly recommend this as a truly magical way for Harry Potter fans to spend two hours in London.

Caroline

Harry Potter Tour For all Harry Potter fans I warmly recommend the ethusiastically guided muggle tour. Vous y decouvrirez des lieux insolites et des informations inedites sur le tournage de Harry Potter a Londres ! Perfect for the young Harry Potter fans !

Ros

This was a great start to our family trip to London. Not only were there HP locations, but also lots of other interesting facts and locations too. Hana was a brilliant tour guide - so friendly and welcoming and very knowledgeable. Thank you Hana!

Macey Trio

What a great way to spend a couple of hours immersed in the magic of Harry Potter. Our tour guide, Hanna was so knowledgeable. She was put to the Harry Potter test by our 9 year old daughter, who was so excited at the prospect of the tour and didn't leave Hanna's side the whole time. She was totally immersed and enjoyed whole experience. So did we. Hanna also slipped in a few other snippets of information whilst en-route. All in all it was good value and we would definitely recommend this to any family who love all things "magic".

Sandra

Great walk around HP locations with other interesting facts thrown in. Our 11 and 13 year olds thoroughly enjoyed it (so did parents!). Hana, our guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. A great way to spend a few hours on a Saturday.

Sarah

This was great fun - hard to feel magical on a busy London Tuesday, but Hana was so full of information and enthusiasm that though I was a 'lapsed' reader, accompanying my much more committed daughter, I found myself at the end wanting to continue the series. The walk was really well constructed, and as others have pointed out, Hana's care and interest in her group was outstanding and made it feel more than just a tour. My only wish was that more could have been made of us being a muggle family - which was how Hana referred to us at the beginning - maybe spying on the Harry Potter world?

Stuart

My kids (8 and 11) really enjoyed it ("brilliant", they said) and, therefore, so did their parents! Hana is a really good guide and, aside from the Harry Potter trivia, passes out plenty of interesting information about the places visited on the tour. Highly recommended for families.

simonbmd

Did this with a 7 and 9 year old who both enjoyed the tour. Hana is a great guide - welcoming and very knowledgeable making for a very pleasant tour. Well researched and put together. Strongly recommend.

Kelsey

Hana is lovely and a good communicator; the tour will suit big Potter fans and kids and for adults/non-converts it's a lovely walk around London.

Kirko

This is a brilliant, customised tour of the main Harry Potter sites in London. Hana appears to have an inexhaustable knowledge of all things Potter, and is great with the kids. But also with adults - we went as two couples and had a great time!

Yvonne

We had a great time! We're both Harry Potter fans and we learned some new trivia, and really enjoyed seeing the various locations. The walk is very pleasant and the tour is interactive with props and dressing up. It is suitable for all ages and we would definitely go again to take visiting friends and family.

Aroa

Me encanto!!! repetiria la experiencia de nuevo sin dudarlo!!Hana te hacia sentirte como en casa.Espero que el tour siga ganado fans porque se lo merece la verdad.

carol

A really great Harry Potter tour! It was so much fun and interesting. Everyone (young and not so young) seemed to be having a lovely time. Hana made us feel really welcome and included. The tour is well thought out and you are very well cared for from the get go. I think it's worth mentioning that Hana told us that we didn't go to Platform 93/4 because it's the easiest to find (in Kings Cross) and that way it gives us time to see locations that we wouldn't find on our own. The tour was great and I would highly recommend it, money and time very well sent! In a nutshell, Harry Potter heaven!!

Andrea

Hana is a great tour guide who knows so much about, and clearly loves the Harry Potter books and films. This tour is equally suitable for Harry Potter experts (there will definitely be something you don't know) as well as Harry Potter novices (my parents, do not know that much have now borrowed HP DVDs and are keen to spot all the places we visited). Hana is friendly, lively and informal, which makes for a much better experiences than some more formal tours I have been on. She also provides some more general historical information about London and a few bits of info about other movies filmed in London, which only adds to the experience. We would definitely recommend this tour. Thanks Hana :)

Muggler

We enjoyed our muggle tour and was great to see the children so engaged in the Potter knowledge Hana was able to share. So valuable to have a knowledgeable guide who is passionate. Hana was professional, approachable and interested in her group members. Only thing I would have liked to have seen was the Platform 9 and 3/4 which is also located in London but that's not a big deal. A great way to see some key London sights as well. I liked that we were told that if we needed to stop for food or coffee that it would be fine.

Livvy

Such an interesting tour! Definitely one of the best i have done in London. Great to find out so much history about the city as well as being loaded with lots of Harry Potter facts and trivia! Our guide Hana was casual and friendly and sounded very non scripted, making it all the better!

Steven

Hana was awesome! Brilliant tour,it was amazing to see parts and history of my own city i didn't even know about...and there was a good suprise at the end :-)

Sara

this is a brilliant tour of london. hana (tour guide) knows everything there is to know about all the films and books! a reasonably paced walking tour around london that lasts approx 2 hours. plenty of photo opps. you also see where other films have been filmed as well as some of the oldest parts of london and some of the history of the area would def recommend this tour to all harry fans :)

Julie

This Muggle Tour was excellent!!! Hana was very friendly and very informative!!! My sister and I are well and truly in our 20s and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Hana is a true Harry Potter Fan which makes it all the more enjoyable!!! Haha But we also had a small history lesson on London as well which was really nice!!! Thanx Hana for a wonderful day!!!

Henry

Me, my brother and my sister had a really nice time today on the muggle tour. Hana took very cool relaxed approach, which for me, made it all the more enjoyable! We learnt a lot about harry potter but also about the history of London. Would recommend to anybody!

Nichola

My three children and I really enjoyed the Muggle Tour. Hana is very knowledgable friendly and informative.

Laura T

This is a must for Harry Potter fans and Hana is friendly, knowledgeable and provides a well thought out tour. It is also a thoroughly enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours walking around some of the most famous places in London with non Harry Potter facts too, so there is something for everyone. Definitely recommended and you pay as much as you like at the end which is brilliant. Go if you can!

ON

The tour was really well organised and takes you round some of the most memorable locations of not only the films but also the city itself, so the tour has something for everyone. Hanna was really into the tour and the small sizes of the groups means that she has time to talk to everyone and answer any questions that you might have. Hanna was friendly,informative and energetic, a pleasure to walk around the city with! One of the best walking tours that I’ve done in London without a doubt!

anu kumar lazarus

Forced to traverse our city , to avoid the death eaters, Hana creates a considered tour for Londoners and visitors. A delightful tour by a guide experienced beyond her years. Disabled partakers or those who forgot their oyster/ travel cards all treated with respect and as a result, loads of bonding and laughs...highlights for me ( I will divulge) were visiting the home of the Order of the Phoenix and ending up in time for lunch near china town....easy and pleasurable all round family day!

Sophie

Fantastic tour! Hana was really great at making everyone feel welcome and part of the group. She really knows her stuff! I was in awe of her recalling so much information! We were told many interesting facts about Harry Potter locations, but also other historical and cinematic information. I will definitely be passing on some of my new knowledge to friends as we wander around town! I would absolutely recommend Muggle Tours to others! A wonderful experience that my sister and I really enjoyed.

Adi

Absolutely wonderful tour! The guide was a really lovely girl who knew her stuff! She gave us a unique insight to the Harry Potter world as well as other interesting facts about London. Definitely not your generic boring guide. Time very well spent and will definitely have to come along again! Thank you so much!

Jonathan

Fantastic tour! Our guide was hugely enthusiastic about all Harry Potter issues and great with our mixed group, aged 11, 12, 14, 15, 17 and 44. We all thoroughly enjoyed it - it's a great way to show teenagers some key historical sites in Central London (Whitehall, Clink, Winchester Palace etc.) without boring them.

Rachel

Really great tour - I reckon our guide could have answered any HP question thrown at her - along with a wealth of other interesting facts (can you link the Golden Hinde to Harry Potter?). As well as visiting HP film locations, the tour takes you past some fantastic London sights - the view of St. Paul's from Southwark, the Clink, Borough market, Leicester Square etc. Time very well spent!

The Fligs

We had a great time, our guide was real fan and really new her HP stuff according to the family, as an HP virgin I've been inspired to read the books! or watch the DVD's. Back to the tour great locations, interesting info and a magic treat for the kids

Concepcion

Loved it! Go and do it! A brilliant tour for any Harry Potter fan and there are props for the kids and magic presents!

Rosanna

interesting, entertaining and informative. A lovely tour that goes around some great places in London and is perfect for Harry Potter fans!
