The Harry Potter tour was excellent and very comprehensive. It was a very lengthy walking tour. My only comment is that it was sometimes difficult to hear the tour guide because of all the background noise.

Visiting London with a friend who's a Harry Potter Superfan. John, a really nice Scottish guy gave us a wonderful tour of the sights, many of which we'd never have recognised or found ourselves! He was the perfect guide. Would definitely recommend!
