What you'll do

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

Join David, Jule, and Eden 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 then 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.

If you can't find a suitable time slot, please message me.

David
The first host and a muggle-born Slytherin, I have been a tour guide in Edinburgh for 8 years. I worked mainly in partnership with SANDEMAN's and became the most reviewed guide on their Trip Advisor (Australian David).

Jule
A pureblood Ravenclaw, born in Germany, I became a tour guide after finishing my Masters’s degree in English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I chose to be a guide as I love this city and wanted to share that love with others. I think Edinburgh is a truly magical place.

Eden
A Half-blood Gryffindor, I was born to a British mother and a French father and therefore grew up between the two countries. I have a love for Edinburgh - a city full of history, secrets, and magic. I am delighted to continue working as an online guide and to bring together my passion for Harry Potter, art, and languages.

David was wonderful! Our family - from grandparents to kids to grandkids - embarked on the Harry Potter tour with David. About half of us knew Harry Potter lore while the other half knew next to nothing. Yet, even the ones who knew nothing still found it fun and entertaining. David did a great job of making sure everyone felt included. David knows a lot about the Harry Potter world. Fans in particular will certainly enjoy all the backstories or insights he shares about characters. All of this fun at an affordable price! I recommend this online tour for all ages and audiences, even if someone knows next to nothing about Harry Potter. It's even more fun if you do the tour experience with people you know.

David is a great host! He customized a private experience for us and really made the entire session fun and engaging. We loved competing for house points & getting facts about the HP world we never would have known without his insight.

David was very knowledgeable, a great conversation conductor, and personalized the tour very well. I didn’t really know TONS about Harry Potter but it was still really fun and engaging. It was a great time.

Insightful, and wonderful to learn many of the behind the scene details we had no idea about when it came to the Harry Potter universe!

David was energetic, fun, and shared a lot of interesting facts and stories! We had a lot of Harry Potter fans on the tour and we all learned a lot of new things! It was especially fun to do it a private tour with friends. David was accommodating of the time and included everyone so well! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone who's a Harry Potter fan or interested in learning more about the creation of Harry Potter.

This was seriously such a fun and informative experience. We really loved it! David was so amazing and knowledgeable. It was really cool how he had us "walking around". Worth every penny, especially for Potter fans!
