3¾hr Harry Potter tour with a warlock

愛丁堡、英國

由 Sam 舉辦的體驗

4 小時, 使用的語言:英語

活動內容

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.

We really enjoyed the tour. Sam ist a good story teller. He knows a lot about JK Rowling and about the history of a lot of locations. A real expert. As non native speakers we didn't understand every single word. But we understood enough to be peefectly entertained in that 4 hours tour.

Long and thorough tour. Lots of lovely touches for the kids and kept 2 8yrs olds engaged for 4 hrs. Not a small feat. We had a private tour and were given options more than once and the kids always chose the longer options!

Sam was by far the best guide I ever had in the history of guides. I swore everytime I visit Scotland I will book his tours. Very knowledgeable about every part of the cities history along with Harry Potter. Very pleased with the experience and I thank you again Sam. Also he does cool magic tricks

For HP fans and any writer, Sam is great telling you where every possible JK Rowling inspiration is from in Edinburgh. Sam has done a lot of research and gave a loooot of info for our 8&10 years old kids. He is well prepared with a lot of props and entertainment. The tour is long, and you probably should know details of HP before you attend the tour! And his description is true- he talks very fast!

Great tour. Children aged 9, 7 and 7 really enjoyed the harry potter tour. Very informative. The Children loved the little extras such as being sorted into houses and the magic tricks.
