David has been a guide in Edinburgh for seven years and does walking tours of both the Old and New town, Castle tours, Horror tours, and Harry Potter Tours. As much as he loves history, the tour that stood out most to his guests from around the world was the Harry Potter one. He found the stories behind the creation and inspiration behind the book series are just as incredible as the book series itself. J.K Rowling wrote most of the first two books in Edinburgh. She took both the beauty and the horror of the city and put it into the atmosphere and the characters. During his virtual tour, he will show you just how fascinating the story behind the story really is in relation to the city he loves, Edinburgh. Bring a pen and paper to do my Hogwarts house test at the start of the tour. Throughout the tour, you'll be competing in Harry Potter quizzes to see which house wins!

This 60 minute virtual tour includes:

  • An Expert Local Guide, David, Live from Edinburgh!

  • Live Q&A with your Guide, whether you're interested in the history of the city or Harry Potter, David's ready for your questions.

  • 1-Hour Interactive Online Experience, including sorting, quizzes, and more!

  • Live Chat Feature throughout the Tour with audience participation highly encouraged!

  • All tours are listed in EST (Eastern Standard Time).
