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.

Die Tour hat uns großen Spaß gemacht. Es ist eine coole Attraktion für Harry Potter Fans und sehr interessant, auch wenn man sich schon gut auskennt. Trotzdem dass es online war, wurde es z.B. mit Bildern gut umgesetzt. Außerdem fanden wir es toll, dass es zwischendurch Quizfragen gab und man Punkte für sein Haus sammeln konnte. Jule war sehr nett und hat alles anschaulich erklärt.

David was very fun and engaging. Not all the members of our group knew much about Harry Potter, but David did a great job of including everyone and making it an enjoyable experience. We would highly recommend this experience, if for no other reason than to learn about Harry Potter and Edinburgh. David is very knowledgeable and entertaining.

This was a really fun experience. We did this as a 40th birthday party for my sister in law, with ages range from 6 years old up to 68 years old as attendees. As a huge Harry Potter Fan myself, it was really interesting to learn about JK Rowling and see where she got her inspiration from, where she lived, see the cafes and places she wrote the novels and to learn who the characters in the story were based upon certain people in her life. It makes me enthralled with the entire series even more. The trivia throughout the hour long experience was great and it was fun for my kids, ages 6 and 8 to try to answer questions to see who wins at the end as all participants were broken up into the different Hogwarts houses before we began. Highly recommend this as a fun family friendly activity!

My children and I truly enjoyed this tour. As we are definitely Harry Potter fans it was a lot of fun. But the added bonus of learning about Rowling’s inspiration was a special treat; especially for my son who is a budding writer.

David’s Q&A and presentation about J K Rowling’s Harry Potter stories was entertaining and even educational. My grandchildren really enjoyed answering most of his questions that tested their knowledge of all Harry Potter characters. We enjoyed their fun and the scenic tour of Edinburgh.

A friend of mine sent me a link to this tour and they thought id enjoy it, because i love everything Harry Potter. This tour was absolutely amazing. The way the tool is structured takes you alone the history of HP and how JKR named her characters, and the connections that led to the creation of her famous characters. I was not expecting that, and it was so nice to learn all that. There were also a lot of questions sprinkled in there that really keep you engaged and test your trivia knowledge! David was an excellent host, and i will definitely recommend this tour to anyone that wants a little bit of magic at home, and will return to more to more of David's tours.
