Looking for something fun to do from the comfort of your own home? Now you can experience our magical tour of Edinburgh from anywhere in the world!
We’ve decided to bring the Potter Trail to you! While on lockdown in Edinburgh, our guides are offering Virtual Potter Trail video tour experiences via Zoom.
We've made every effort to make these tours just as interactive and magical as our real life tours. Your guide will be live using a mixture of high resolution images and Google Earth. There will also be a house point competition, sorting ceremony and spell casting. The only thing we can't provide over Zoom is a wand so we recommend you bring your own!
What does it cost?
For a flat fee of £40, you'll get the entire Potter Trail experience, minus the walking! Find out more about what the tour involves here.
We have a maximum of 20 computers per call. Any more than 20 and the call can become quite chaotic! If you would like to link more than 20 computers then you can book multiple tours at £40 each. We won’t be able to do more than one call simultaneously but can book multiple tours 90 minutes apart.
How does it work?
Our guides will use Zoom, and you do not need to download an app or have an account to view the call. However we recommend you download the desktop app for free here for a better, more stable experience!
Once payment has been received, you will be sent a link to the scheduled call. We recommend viewing on computers or tablets - just not mobiles, as the screen isn't big enough to see our presentation.
What do I need to do?
Think of a couple of dates and times that would suit your group best for the tour, taking into account time differences. Our guides can work from 9am to 10pm BST (GMT+1). The last available start time any day will be 9pm.
Please note that we will need at least 48 hours’ notice to book a tour. We will reply to requests within 24 hours and may not have all dates/times available. Giving us a few options is helpful!
