Join us on a private tour through Edinburgh's historic Old Town.
We will explore where J. K. Rowling gained her inspiration for her global phenomenon of Harry Potter. We will begin on the famous Royal Mile and in the shadows of Edinburgh Castle. Next we will wander down Edinburgh's "Diagon Alley" and then head into a real graveyard to see the grave "he who must not be named". We will also learn about the cafe's where she sat and wrote the beginning of the book and where she finished in the realms of luxury.

Having gained a degree in Tourism Management in Edinburgh and having extensively worked in the Scottish tourism industry I feel I have the passion to show you around. I specialised my final year Thesis paper on the phenomenon that is Harry Potter and how it relates to Scottish tourism.

All tours are small group sizes. No more than 10 people per group.
