What you'll do

I am proud to announce that I have a new co-host, Jule who will be doing the tours in both English and German.

Join us as we see the beautiful Scottish city of Edinburgh through the eyes of J.K Rowling. From her poor beginnings to become a billionaire author.

Our tour is brilliant for solo travelers, families, birthday parties, children's parties, team building, and corporate events.

First, we'll do our own Hogwarts House test for all the muggles. This is very important as throughout the tour, there will be a Harry Potter trivia competition between the houses!

We'll then start our tour of the beautiful city 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, and the graveyard where she took names for her characters.

Along the way, we'll tell you about the inspiration for some of the most loved characters and we'll finish with the final round of quiz questions to see which Hogwarts house wins.

If you could tell us your favorite characters beforehand we'll include them on the tour! We also give extra house points to those who show up in costume.

If you wish to attend but can't find a suitable time slot, please message me.

David
I have been a tour guide in Edinburgh for 7 years doing walking tours of both the Old and New town, Castle tours, Horror tours, and Harry Potter Tours. I worked mainly in partnership with SANDEMAN's New Europe and became the most reviewed guide on their Trip Advisor (Australian David).

Jule
I have been a tour guide in Edinburgh for one and a half years – and a Harry Potter fan for most of my life.
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 other people as well. I think Edinburgh is a truly magical place.

Over the last two years, we have guided many a Harry Potter tour through rainy, sunny, or stormy Edinburgh and have met so many wonderful fans of the series!

Our whole family had a fantastic time touring Harry Potter and JK Rowlings Scotland. We are all big HP nerds and still learned somethings we didn't know about the background of the characters and their origins. We also loved the visuals of the beautiful country side. Felt like we were transported for a afternoon.

Our group attended the Harry Potter Experience as a team building activity and connection experience for our employees who are missing the camaraderie of the in person office setting. The experience was informative, well-paced, interesting and FUN! Our group loved it. We highly recommend David and this experience. Mischief Managed!

Our group had a wonderful experience with Jule! This was our first Airbnb virtual experience, and Jule made us feel welcome and comfortable from the moment we joined. She created a fun atmosphere and I think our group warmed up to the format over the course of the experience. By the end, we were all competing for different Harry Potter trivia questions, feeling a lot of appreciation for the deep history in Edinburgh and the unique insights we learned and enjoying accumulating house points :) Would highly recommend this for anyone who is a Harry Potter fan - definitely a family friendly activity. Jule was incredibly generous with her time and even stayed on longer since we got started late. The photos they show of Edinburgh are very well done and make you feel like you are exploring vs just seeing static photos of different locations.
