Fantastic way to see London

My husband and I decided to go on this tour as we're both HP fans and thought it would be a great way to spend an afternoon in the city! The tour is interactive and interesting, our guide Tom was great fun and you could really tell he enjoyed his job. Even if you're not massive into Harry Potter this is a fantastic way to see London as you are taken around key landmarks by your knowledgeable guide. The cruise down the Thames meant we got to see marvellous views of Big Ben and more, so I really can't recommend this enough.

Harry Potter Tour.

I had an amazing time on this Harry Potter Tour And Thames Boat Ride. This also felt like a little tour of London, I got to see areas of London that i usually would not get a chance to see. Our tour guide Tom was every enthusiastic and welcoming. This was no ordinary tour as he also quizzed us on Harry Potter facts. On arrival, we were told that we will each be put in a "house". I was in Gryffindor, to get the most points for your house you had to answer the questions correctly. The Thames boat ride was relaxing, we got to see some of London's main attractions like London eye. Overall the tour was very enjoyable, this is the perfect gift for any Harry Potter fan.
