What you'll do

We'll discover the streets and secret alleyways of the Old Town area of Edinburgh, starting at Edinburgh Castle, then we'll wander down to "Diagon Alley" and find the gravestones of "Voldemort" and some other well known names in the Harry Potter series.
We'll also spot "Hogwarts School" of Wizardry and find where the writer found her inspiration from.
Learn about the famous and not so famous cafes where J.K. Rowling began her writing career and finished in the realms of luxury.
The tour will last approximately 1 hour.
However, please allow for an additional 20 minutes if tour runs over depending on group size, photo opportunities and question time.

The tour will be outdoors, whether rain or shine so come prepared to walk around for over an hour. If it is raining, I suggest to wear sturdy shoes - the graveyard can be muddy.

An amazing experience, Katrina was so knowledgeable and brilliant at relating facts to the Harry Potter books. The tour itself was definitely good value for money.

Amazing!!! Would highly recommend Kat! We considered one of the “free” tours but they ask for a donation at the end anyway so having seen Kat’s fantastic reviews, together with her tourism degree & the fact she’s local, we opted to book her! Absolutely no regrets & smaller group is so much nicer!

My wife and I had an amazing time with Katrina! She took us to some great location related to Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling. She went above and beyond to tell us others stories about some locations in the city. This was such a great experience and I definitely recommend it!

What a great way to get not only your Harry Potter geek-on, but a splendid way to see some amazing things. The hour was perfect and she recommended great places to check out on our own later on. Thumbs up!!! She even arranged for it not to rain whilst we were on the tour! Mischief managed!
