Fantastic Harry Potter taxi tour.

Mark A. was an excellent guide, the trip was well thought out and very informative. My 8 year old daughter loved the Harry Potter sites and the additional stops Mark A kindly made at our request. It was a thoroughly enjoyable morning.
Harry Potter experience

Our guide was absolutely wonderful. Enthusiastic about Harry Potter but also passionate about London itself. He brought an edited dvd excerpts so you relived the movies as you stood on location. Great fun.
Our driver and guide, David was awesome!

David was awesome and he could not have been more friendly or professional. He was very nice, very knowledgeable and he tried to make this the perfect trip for us. David was prompt, courteous and very engaging. David deserved more than five out of five stars.
Fantastic experience

Harry Potter movie sets tour
, Jul 2019
If you are a real Harry Potter fan then you will really enjoy this tour. We saw all the actual sites where the movies were filmed. David our guide was great and very knowledgeable about Harry Potter and london in general. Going in a private black cab was great we could go and do what we wanted and he allowed us to stop when we wanted too! So fun
Our driver was a driving encyclopedia of all things London!

My entire family of 5 consisting of my elderly father, my husband, and 2 kids (9 and 12 years) thoroughly enjoyed this private tour. Our driver, Gerry, was so great! Only negative comment has nothing to do with the company or the driver but just know that London traffic is horrendous so getting around takes a while. Otherwise, our 3-1/2 hour tour through central London and all the Harry Potter sites were fabulous! We were staying at a hotel that was outside of the usual pick up zone but was able to be picked up still with a few extra pounds. If you cannot get to the Warner Brothers studio for the real Harry Potter experience, this was a nice substitute.
Outstanding Tour

My husband and I took our tour along with our three grandchildren. Our guide, David, was absolutely wonderful. He was personable, well-organized, and very knowledgeable about all things Harry Potter. We all enjoyed seeing the many London sites used in the filming of the Harry Potter movies. I highly recommend this tour. I will most certainly use this company again on a future visit.
More than just Harry Potter

While touring Harry Potter movie locations in London you will also learn a lot about other historic sights, monuments and attractions.

We had a great time, our guide was a resourceful and witty companion, we enjoyed his company and professionalism greatly. We strongly recommend this tour to anyone who have a Harry Potter geek in their family and don't know much about the books themselves.. :) The guide is a perfect partner for your kid and takes off a great load off your shoulders if you are sort of fed up with the story.. :) Good job!!! Thanks!
