If you’re new to the city this is such a great and inexpensive way to find your feet. Experiencing Edinburgh through a Scottish native is truly insightful. If you’re a Harry Potter fan (or not as it’s still an amazing activity) I would highly recommend this tour and would wish for anyone to have Kieran as your guide. He interacted with each group member so well and made the birth of Harry Potter come alive. I wish Kieran success in his acting career a very interesting young man!

Really enjoyed myself today. I've come for a long weekend solo trip/mini holiday to Edinburgh and found this tour online for a bargain.

As the tour states none of the films where filmed here so this is about the backstory of how J.K Rowling created Harry Potter as she was living here when she write and finished the books. But the tour is very interesting and you get plenty of stop breaks during the tour so you weren't walking non-stop. 2 hours may seem a lot for a walking tour but it went by pretty quick because it was fun.

Our Tour guide Monique was really knowledgeable and being a true Potterhead she was really enthusiastic which just added to the experience.

I also appreciated how she took the time out to speak to me one to one especially as I came alone. This was a lobely added touch.

She was willing to help with any directions, gave us good tips on where to eat and drink and take photos of people. She took a momento photos of us at the end which will be posted on the Instagram page.

Included in the tour was a fun quiz to test us on our knowledge and we had to pick our Hogwarts Houses then collect house points by answering the trivia questions.

I would very much recommend this tour to those interested to learn more about the History of how Harry Potter was created. As well as intriguing facts you may now have known about the wizarding world and certain Easter eggs in the books/films. I certainly learn a good few things.

Thank you Monique 😊 for a special day and to See Your City for creating this fantastic tour 😃

Kieran was the best guide I have ever had on a tour. He engaged everyone on the tour, shared an incredible vault of Harry Potter knowledge, stopped to talk to the group in a way that everyone could hear and see. During walking time he talked with individual people and showed an interest in them. His accent is very thick but I had no trouble understanding him and I am deaf (wear hearing aids). I would highly recommend this tour for anyone. Hopefully you are lucky enough to have Kieran as your guide.

From the moment I’d decided to visit Edinburgh, a Harry Potter tour was on my list. Boy, it lived up to all expectations and more. Our guide for the morning was the wonderful Kieran who was the epitome of what it means to be a fantastic tour guide. Enthusiastic, incredibly knowledgable, friendly & welcoming. He kept the whole group engaged throughout the two hour tour, testing our Harry Potter knowledge and pitting the four houses against each other (before we set off on the tour, we were sorted into houses). I thought I was a bit of a Harry Potter nerd before the tour, but I learnt even more from Kieran and found the whole tour fascinating. 100% recommend! :)

Went on the Harry Potter tour with Kieran as our guide. He was absolutely incredible! Not only sharing knowledge/facts about all things Harry Potter but delivering it in such an eloquent and exciting way that had the entire group listening attentively. The quiz throughout the entire tour also made it incredibly fun!

We were left completely disappointed as our tour guide didn’t show up! We waited over 30mins in the allocated pick up location. We couldn’t get through to the office number after several attempts and after finally speaking the booking agent they advised us to move to another location and someone would collect us. A further 40mins later no one arrived! Our day out in Edinburgh was ruined as we had very limited time in the city. Having booked this for a family of 7 I wouldn’t recommend this tour unless you want to be left disappointed. I have had no contact from the company to offer an apology or even to tell us what the issue was. We have requested a refund via our booking agent.

Wow, Monique absolutely blew us away. This is a must for any Harry Potter fan, and especially so if you're a fan of the books. Monique also threw in some additional Edinburgh info for those who weren't big on the wizarding world.
For £12 I wouldn't have been upset if the tour was half the length. For what we got I'd happily say it was worth £20-25 per person

A fun tour led by engaging, personable and passionate tour guides who truly love both Harry Potter and the city of Edinburgh. In learning the details behind the inspiration of J.K. Rowling’s cherished series, we gleaned a deeper perspective of the city. This was a terrific way for us to get our bearings and ease into our stay.

We had an absolutely incredible time during our tour on Monday. Kieran was outstanding, full of knowledge, charisma and passion which made the experience so much more special. So informative and learned things about Edinburgh we’d never have known, will undoubtedly recommend it to friends and family. And just a shout out to Kieran, one of the best guides we’ve ever had for any tour anywhere!

Amazing experience. Mason, the guide, is very knowledgeable about the places the books were written, where some of the names were inspired at. He also explained a lot about the architecture and gave some insight on the history of the city. I would absolutely recommend!
