So much for where to go. Here's why to go with London Walks.
 
Best reason of all – best is better!
 
You want chapter and verse? Ask and thou shalt receive:
 
1. We don't do gimmicks  
 
2. We don't do fancy schmantzy marketing
 
3. We don't charge an arm and a leg
 
4. We don't game the system – on Trip Advisor, e.g.
 
5. We don't do any sort of hocus pocus
 
6. What we do do is front our tours with the best guides in London
 
7. It all comes down to the guiding
 
Above all with Harry Potter. For any number of reasons: because of the subject; because of the demographic (especially the wide range of ages); because some of the walkers know Harry Potter inside out and others know next to nothing. As guiding goes, this one's a high wire act. It takes a very special guide to get it right. It's a question of range. A gifted actor – like Richard – has got that range. He's instantly likable. But he can also do high-beam intensity. He's got the goblet of fire voice. Got the dynamic personality. Got the past: Himalayas and a raft on the Pacific (London Walks' Action Man, he's earned that nickname of his – "Kontiki"). He's got those actor "gifts" that can't be taught, let alone faked. He's pitch perfect. He's got timing. He's got presence. He's just got it. All of it.
 
Anything else? Yes, the little film we've made of one of the walks. It'll show you Richard in action; give you a very good idea of what our Harry Potter walks are like; and close the case.
 
Anything else else? Yes, this. What the walkers who've written in so far have said about Richard's Harry Potter Walks. Real feedback – bona fide feedback – as opposed to the "stinks the place up" chicanery that's become the common currency of "review sites".
 
And the last couple of nuts and bolts...
 
There's a 3 galleon*** charge for kids for the very good reason that the Harry Potter Walks are for all ages! ***Oh, okay – if you must put it that way – £3. But not for tinies – under 8s. They go free. It's the normal £9 for adults, £7 for concs.
