What you'll do

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.

We also have 'The Dark' and ' A Christmas Carol' variations of the experience which are available on request for private tours.

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.

We also give extra house points to those who show up in costume.

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

We did this Harry Potter Edinburgh AirBNB experience as a team building event. A number of us were Harry Potter fans so we, and even those who were not, enjoyed the experience which also included learning about Edinburgh. I'd highly recommend to fans or non fans :)

This was an amazing experience for my son. He knows all things Harry Potter and J.K.Rowling and he still walked away with more information and a experience he will talk about for quite awhile. Awesome job!

The Edinburgh tour with Jule was amazing. We enjoyed being sorted into houses and the competition was fun. Highly recommend to any Harry Potter fan!

Ich habe mit meinen siebenjährigen Zwillingen an der Harry Potter Tour auf Deutsch mit Jule teilgenommen und wir fanden es alle ganz toll. Jule ist sehr persönlich auf uns eingegangen (ich denke mal, die Tour ist eher für ältere Kinder und Erwachsene konzipiert) und wir hatten in der Stunde sehr viel Spaß. Wir können die Tour auf jeden Fall empfehlen!

Very fun mixture of travel/history and Harry Potter trivia. Unique! We started with a very simple quiz to determine our Hogwarts house in order to put us into teams. Then, the tour began and took us all over Edinburgh. It was very interactive, with quick (mostly easy) trivia questions along the way and a visual scavenger hunt component too to earn points. Mostly, there was a lot to learn about the inspirations for Harry Potter locations, concepts, and characters like Dumbledore, Snape, Hermione, etc. 10/10, would recommend
