What you'll do

IMPORTANT: Our tour is offered in English, German, Spanish and French. Please use the "Show (more) dates" button to check the language you are booking in.

Join David, Jule, Eden and Maria as we see the beautiful Scottish city of Edinburgh through the eyes of J.K Rowling. From her poor beginnings to a billionaire author.

Our tour is brilliant for solo travellers, families, birthday parties, children's parties, team building, and corporate events. For high profile events, ask about our premium tour.

First, we'll do our own Hogwarts House test for all the muggles. There will be a Harry Potter trivia competition between the houses, so all need to be sorted!

We'll start our tour of Edinburgh using moving images to keep the action fluid and accessible to people will all internet speeds. We'll show you the places where J.K Rowling drew her inspiration, such as the school believed to be the inspiration for Hogwarts, the shops that found their way into Diagon Ally, the graveyard where she got her characters' names and much, much more!

Along the way, we'll tell you about the inspiration for some of the most loved characters, and we'll finish with the final quiz to see which Hogwarts house wins.

If there is a character you want to know more about, let us know! We also give extra house points to those who show up in costume.

Please message if you can’t find a suitable time.

This was the second time we did the tour with David, this time with 2 additional friends. It was fun for all and my daughter and her friend couldn’t stop talking about how much fun they had together.

Great and fun tour! Awesome to see the parallels and inspirations for the Harry Potter series! Much more pulled from the real world than I realized!

We had a very small group and Jule was attentive to each of us during the whole experience. I really liked the way she conducts the Sorting Hat ceremony, nothing too complicated, except for the part that I was sorted to Slytherin! Me! A Ravenclaw since forever! But it was fun nonetheless being a Slytherin for a day, we all have a bit of Slytherin inside of us. The tour is light-hearted and it provides us the necessary info regarding the life of J.K in Edinburgh, but it makes you want more, I thought it was too short! The interaction between the guests and the competition between the houses is well-thought. It is fun and informative

The Harry Potter Tour was an experience I organized for the students in my after-school program. Jule was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and fun! It was the perfect activity for my Harry Potter loving students!
