Hi I'm Sam. I'm short, balding with enourmous ears and I'm beginning to feel a tug to shut them in over doors. A House Elf's work is never done.

I'd be thrilled to host a private Potter tour, just for your group.

Thoughts on birthdays

See a unicorn on a Harry Potter walking tour Well if you're considering me - thanks! I think it better to give the kids a choice though. At least two. People value more what they choose for themselves and it's a day of heightened emotions, so offer them a couple of alternatives, just for their birthday let them be the boss. If they choose a tour, brilliant!

In all cases make sure they're warm, the tour has a bit of standing around, but not overheating. If it rains, bring a trident.

The length of my activity tour ranges from 4 hours 15m, to 4:45m, depending upon queues and walking speed.
I can do tours of upto 5 people like this on weekdays, so long as people start 09.00am, so the Elephant house (or another cafe) has space.
It's best suited to parties where at least one person has read all the books.

In peak season, or for larger groups a room needs to be booked increasing the price.
It's possible to do a shorter tour including the activities if wanted.
It maybe best not to tell the party about the Quill writing, it's more fun as a surprise.

I'm very happy to do these tours because they're something different and a good time, please contact me with your party size and availability if interested.
