Description:

Begin your morning or afternoon tour with pickup from your hotel, and hop inside the back of a classic London black cab. With your private driver-guide at the wheel, set off in search of filming locations from the Harry Potter movies.

Pause for a photo op outside Australia House, whose grandiose interior was featured in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone as Gringotts Wizarding Bank; stroll over Lambeth Bridge, where the Knight Bus squeezed in between two double-decker buses in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban; and visit Leadenhall Market, a beautiful, covered Victorian market, where you’ll find the entrance to the Leaky Cauldron.

Continue to the pub that was transformed into the Third Hand Book Emporium, and discover the real-life square used as Grimmauld Place (spoiler alert: there are no moving houses) before arriving at King’s Cross Station. Take the ultimate souvenir photo with a disappearing luggage trolley under the Platform 9¾ sign, and then finish your black cab tour with a visit to the Ministry of Magic.

When the time comes, say goodbye to your guide and head to the Thames River for your cruise. See Millennium Bridge, which was destroyed by Death Eaters in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince; glide past the Houses of Parliament and under Tower Bridge; and follow the same route Harry takes when he flies his broomstick over the river in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Choose to stay on the cruise boat for its full loop, or hop on and off at Tower Pier or Greenwich Pier to continue sightseeing independently.

Our tour guide went out of his way to ensure fun was had by all in our party. He wove Harry Potter and Bomd together and showed us glimpses of the city we wouldn’t otherwise have seen. We had a short turnaround in London and this tour allowed us to experience a taste of nearly everything we hoped to see! Thank you!

Our tour guide was wonderful. Even though my granddaughters were 15 and 17 our guide made our visit exciting and informational. We are enjoyed all the Harry Potter sites and then we climbed on the boat and cruised up and down the Thames. This was a wonderful and fun day.

Our guide Mr Cahill was simply awesome! My 12 year old twins had a ball and we all loved the tour! The research factor of comparing points in the films with a portable DVD player was great. The pace ensured we saw heaps and yet never felt rushed. Flexible so as to avoid an area with a large march, and therefore able to slip in some Sherlock Holmes sites also.
Thoroughly recommend the tour!

Jerry, our driver, had extensive knowledge of the town and Harry Potter facts. He did a great job of customizing our stops as needed and made our tour comfortable and exciting.

An amazing experience for all HarryPotter fanatics. A brilliant guide who will give you a running commentary on all Harry Potter film locations plus a number of other films and London attractions. Definitely well worth the money.

A great tour with a friendly and knowledgeable driver as guide. Especially enjoyed stops at the markets - Leadenhall and Borough - with a few bonus landmarks 221B Baker St etc thrown in as we passed.

Our guide Steve was wonderful. He made tour come alive like we were right there with characters. He knew his Harry Potter. Our only problem was communication between company and driver they did not tell him the right place to pick us up. I would highly recomend Steve and if other guides are as good the tours should be great.
