Neler yapacaksınız

6 adults max, *in compliance with Scottish law*.

The spine & heart of this tour is JK Rowling's biography, from ‘penniless single mother' to stratospheric author with a few pennies more & what we can learn from that.

We'll see how Rowling plumbed history to make her world feel fully formed.
We’ll visit our winding wizarding street leading to the castled school Rowling declared 'not the Hogwarts', and we'll Revilio! it's true connection.

We'll see tons & tons of Edinburgh's old town, approaching 4 miles walking.
Dive inside our national museum, dodge a 3 headed dog & lift the trapdoor on Rowling's mythological inspirations.

What you'll learn:
◘ How to conjure inspiration.
◘ A tool to convert cliché to originality.
◘ A mindset for using failure like a piston.
◘ Intermediate wandwork - I didn't get my Hogwart's letter so I'm giving folk theirs.

Novelists have said nice things about seeing themselves in Rowling’s writing practices.

If you love Harry Potter, if its characters are the pillars of your mind & its lessons the bashed about glasses of your outlook, then this is the longest tour of the books' home*. I’d love to meet you.

Requires strong English.
The tour expands & contextualises, it's demanding for preteen boys; it's weak for whetting appetites having spoilers galore. It covers almost all HP's creation story. Accio Harry Potter pupillas!

I used to write screenplays, I've written a couple of historical tours. I have a blog on Harry Potter's Britain that provided the blueprint for my dear rivals here - God bless them! (How do you say Crucio again?).

Rowling is the world's most successful writer & I've always been interested in what Rowling has to say, looking for clues to write better and just to live more successfully. So I thought I'd pour that interest into a tour. It's since won awards, so something I'm not totally terrible at then. Just pretty bad. Pettigrew level maybe -SMACK! - 'Be still ye ghoulish silver hand!'.

However I'm not an actor, I'm a failed screenwriter, a pasty blue nerd. As such I can be stricken by fits of the gabbles, I can be hard to understand if English is your second language, as you can see from some reviews. :/ Oh dear.

Nerede olacaksınız?

Edinburgh's Royal Mile is like a fish skeleton, we'll follow some of the ribs to treasure.
Greyfriars Kirkyard: JK has disowned this cemetery, we'll dig up the truth.
George Heriots: JK's true relationship with the school she's adamant isn't Hogwarts.
Victoria Street Ψ
We'll dive within the wonder loom: JK capacious head.

Sam was amazing! He made us feel a part of the magical world, and noone could've done it better than him. A must recommended trip!

If you are staying in Edinburgh for few days and you are a potterhead i seriously recommended you to reserve some time for this tour! I learned a lot about J.K.Rowling AND the city itself and it was clear that Sam is a very passionate and experienced tour guide. Take his advice to wear warm clothes seriously and choose comfortable shoes- it's a lot of walking and the weather can be quite cruel.

This is a great tour. Sam knows his history of the city, his Harry Potter stories & his broader knowledge about JK Rowling.

Myself and my daughters age 8 had a great time. Sam engaged us all asking us about our favourite characters and why. The girls loved it, such fun after home schooling ! We toured all the old city, and learnt how the city inspired JK’s books. There’s a a couple of surprises too. Oh we loved the walking

We were entertained from beginning to end, and I really enjoyed discovering the many details about the author, JK Rowling and her story in Edinburgh whilst walking the cobble stone streets of the city. It really was amazing to hear all of the influences from Edinburgh that shaped the Harry Potter novels and it gave us a real appreciation for all of JK Rowling’s struggles to get the books published whilst living as a single mother in poverty. It’s remarkable to think that she rose from poverty and went on to achieve the Edinburgh Award and enriching the lives of so many. Do not miss the opportunity!

Me and my partner had lots of fun on this tour. Sam was exceptional: filled with insightful information and clever links between Edinburgh history and J.K Rowling’s life. We visited parts of the city we hadn’t before and really got a feel for the place, and were able to see the inspiration behind so many famous locations in the Harry Potter books. Sam had great little magical twists and unexpected surprises (that I won’t ruin!) and it was thoroughly enjoyable. I don’t think there’s anything Potter/Rowling related that he does not know! Definitely worth doing if you are interested in the writer’s life or are a Harry Potter fan. Would definitely recommend.
