Seven Reasons You Should Book a Virtual Tour of Edinburgh

Join us as we see the beautiful Scottish city of Edinburgh through a virtual Harry Potter tour from That Guide With Glasses! The MuggleNet staff attended this magical virtual tour hosted by David and Jule, Potterheads who host the tours in both English and German — Spanish will be available in December. The tour is catered to Muggles of all ages and is great for birthday parties, solo travelers, and company team building. Check out what our staff had to say about this interactive virtual tour, and enter to win a private group tour!

1. Get Sorted into your Hogwarts House and earn points!

We actually really liked their custom, personalized Sorting quiz. The way they place the attendees into each House makes a lot of sense. Want to dress up in your chosen House gear? There may be points awarded… You might win the House Cup! Trivia questions throughout the tour will keep you on your toes to earn more points.


2. Safely visit a city you’ve never been to (or would love to go back to!).

The beautiful photos of the town made me feel like I was there! The architecture of the city is absolutely stunning. Get up close and personal with Edinburgh and all it has to offer. You can practically taste the haggis from home!




3. It includes fun facts that even the biggest Potter fan wouldn’t know.

Do you know which statue in the city inspired Dobby? Thanks to this tour, we do! There are so many Potter tidbits and nuggets that even the most knowledgeable fan may not have known. Have your wands, or in this case your typing fingers, at the ready to answer trivia along the route.


4. Gather your friends for a night of magical fun.

This is the perfect socially distanced activity for Potterheads to enjoy from all parts of the world! Chat all things Potter while sharing a memorable and magical experience.

5. It’s fun for the whole family.

Lots of laughs were had, and the tour guides were very knowledgeable. Hear about the inspiration for your favorite scenes from the books and movies. If you ask to include beloved characters beforehand, David and Jule will include them on the tour!


6. Meet new Potter fans from around the globe, including the tour guides.

David and Jule are so fun and really engaged with their audience! They’re so kind and funny, and they really make it an exciting experience.
