What you'll do

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Jule
A pureblood Ravenclaw, born in Germany, I became a tour guide after finishing my Masters’s degree at the University of Edinburgh. I love this city and want to share that love. Edinburgh is a truly magical place.

We booked this experience as a part of a corporate event (EA Sports). It was pure magic from start to finish. David is wonderful - really engaging, knowledgeable, and entertaining. He has found many ways to make this an immersive experience; a quiz to sort attendees into their respective houses, trvia, friendly competition, and a genuinely magical tour of Edinburgh. This event was extremely well received by our team. Highly recommend!

David was fantastic! We needed a fun team event to help blow off some steam, and this was absolutely perfect. I learned so many things I never knew, and it was incredible seeing all of the physical locations. Oh, and we both love Severus Snape so he wins a point just for that ;-)

David was very engaging, knowledgeable and patient as it was my ten year old daughter who did it. She loved the random facts and storytelling as well as the quiz. Great entertainment. Highly recommended for Potterheads
