Það sem verður gert

Do you want an all-round, INTERACTIVE city tour full of local history, castle viewpoints and Scottish cuisine? Then this tour is for you!

After three years of my 5-star tour, Harry Potter, Haggis & City Sunsets, I have launched this new experience to bring together my biggest passions in dark history, Harry Potter, and Scottish cuisine, all the while making you laugh.

Meeting at the National Library of Scotland we will start the experience by discussing how J K Rowling began her journey in creating Harry Potter and how she was inspired to create Diagon Alley. We will then find ourselves in the heart of the old town, where we will explore the gruesome history of public executions, find one of the most incredible viewpoints of Edinburgh Castle and navigate around arguably the most haunted graveyard in the UK, Greyfriars Kirkyard.

Throughout the experience you will also learn more about J K Rowling’s life, exploring two cafes where she spent her time writing the books. Hear the tale of Greyfriars Bobby, in the same graveyard which inspired J K Rowling’s three leading characters in the ever-popular Harry Potter series.
Amongst all the fun, don’t forget deep fried mars bar and haggis ;) (recommended but not included)!

It would be a pleasure to see you soon and happy travelling :)

Most of the times we do some very common and famous tours while traveling. But when you do this kind of special, out of the box tour you will always get a little extra information about the place, and you get to visit the hidden gems as well. This was such an interesting tour led by Robert! I really enjoyed this 2 hours long trip exploring some of the well worth places with some history of Edinburgh, about J K Rowling and her motivation towards writing world famous Harry Potter series, some spooky mysterious graveyards with amazing stories and many more 😊. Robert is very professional and an amazing storyteller. I 100 % recommended this tour to each and every travellers to Edinburgh 👍

Such a brilliant tour! My boyfriend & I thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing - from the amazing Harry Potter tidbits, to the incredibly detailed historical tales, to the fried Mars bar 😅 highly recommend this tour with Rob, such a great way to see the city and learn some cool new things. Rob himself was also such a laugh and an excellent story-teller - just good vibes all round.

Rob was a high energy, charming host for a lovely tour. He knows his history too! He deftly wove it in with nuggets about Harry Potter and JK Rowling. He consciously worked to engage everyone on the tour. Expert level! Highly recommend!

Very nice and personalized tour, with some interesting historical insights and Harry Potter trivia along the way. I happened to be the only one who scheduled for that date, but I imagine its just as good in groups :)

I would thoroughly recommend this. I booked it on a whim as I was nearby at the time & I'm very glad I did! Rob is very friendly, approachable & easy going. His talk is great if you want to hear both about Harry Potter and some of the history of Edinburgh. he's happy to adapt it a bit to what people are interested in the most too. The 2 hours flew by and I learnt so much. Also, he wasn't in a rush to leave at the end, like some guides are. Thanks Rob!
