I was so excited to see branded HP coach bus when it arrived at our meeting point. Later I was grateful to avoid busy traffic in London and outside, it took an hour to get to Studios. The tour in WBStudios is fabulous itself. Every HP fan would be satisfied with it. Good idea to divide tour with foodcourt and restrooms. I found out, that this was the best price for tour right way to studios, without changing at Waltford Junction. Audio guide is not necessary, only if you want to stay longer time at the display. If with kids forget it. Butterbeer is quite sweet, caramel and creamy, just prepare yourself. At the end is a HUGE branded superstore, very nice, but you should prepare to either waste tons of money or make an agreement with kids much sooner on how much you want to spend there.

A good and convenient way to get direct to/from London to the Harry Potter Tour on a reasonably comfortable bus. With tickets provided their is no need to queue for them.
Everything ran to time and without hitch but would preferred a bit more time (only 4hrs) at the studio particularly as our tour spanned lunchtime.
The sets, detail and production are amazing and let you understand why film credits are so lengthy. The audio guides available helped to keep you informed without having to read all the notices and also provided additional information. Well worth the £4.95
Food on site was good and reasonably priced and don't miss trying Butter Beer.

First time booking anything with National Holidays. This was a 2-day coach tour visiting Warner Bros Making of Harry Potter studio tour and a visit to London.

The organisation for the tour was easy and efficient. Simple online booking with prebooking of preferred choice of seating.

Our driver for the weekend was Ivan. He effectively and confidently guided the bus the whole route, which on occasions provided some obstacles, inclement weathr, and all manner of bad behaviour of other motorists and pedestrians, and kept the whole weekend's tour to time.

The visit to the studio tour was booked for Saturday afternoon, which offered us around 3.5 hours to do the studio tour and giftshop, before leaving to go to our hotel for the night. I really enjoyed the studio tour, but felt we had to rush the later part of the tour due to the limited time remaining for us. Additionally we didn't have much time in the extensive giftshop either. So many things we didn't get to see...

The whole purpose for us to do this tour was to visit the studio tour only. I was not interested in visiting London at all. We stayed on the coach for the optional london sightseeing tour Ivan provided, rather than wandering around a blustery and often rainy London streets. As such I thought the time spent in London was wasted time. The London tour was made worse for me by having to endure the unashamed abject racism (wrapped up as very bad jokes) spouting from the mouths of an older couple sitting behind me (who had joined the sightseeing tour from another coach trip). Not visiting London, for me would have improved this tour. Given the choice, I would rather have not gone to London for day 2, but either left earlier to return home, or if the option was made available a return to the studio tour to spend time just in the giftshop buying gifts and memorabilia.
How about this National Holidays?...

We booked the Golden Tours bus service (MGM's official partner for transportation to Harry Potter) to get to the studios. It turns out that we were restricted to returning on an 8:15pm bus, 5 hours after our arrival at the studio and a full 2 hours after we completed the tour. This information is buried deep in their web site. We decided not to wait 2 hours in the parking lot to return to London and took the free shuttle to Watford Junction followed by the express train to Euston. All in all, faster, cheaper and more efficient. We contacted Golden Tours for a refund for the return journey and were turned down. This is terrible service and we strongly recommend using the train service instead.

Needless to say, the Harry Potter tour itself is amazing and highly recommended!

Dear Michael S Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We are of course disappointed to hear your comments. Previously, we had a large number of customers that claimed that they wanted more time in the studio. As a result of this, we changed the timetable to ensure that the visit time was extended, as there is so much to see inside the Studio. Since doing this, the feedback that we have received has been very positive. We operate a timetable to ensure that everybody receives enough time in the Studio and that there are sufficient spaces on each bus so that everybody can get back to central London without having to wait for a long period of time. We also have a maximum amount of seats on each branded bus. There is a Golden Tours rep that is stationed at the Studio, to help all customers. If there is available space on a bus that is departing before your given return time you would be able to board that earlier bus. We also advise the return time of your bus before you enter the Studio, so that you can plan your visit and clearly display the full timetable on our website. Once again, we are sorry to hear that your experience was not as we would have hoped. Kind regards

This company sells incredibly expensive tickets and is very unreliable. Here is my story:

I tried to book tickets to Harry Potter tour in London. The company failed to give me any booking confirmation about my purchase but they still charged my credit card. After multiple contacts with their customer service and multiple refund requests over three weeks, Golden tours still has not given my money back.
Luckily I used my credit card company and I have asked them to decline the money transfer to Golden Tours. I highly disrecommend this service provider.

(Note: The Warner Bros Harry Potter studio tour experience was very nice, just try to buy the tickets from Warner Bros studio's official websites not from Golden Tours)

N.B. This review covers the transport provided by Golden Tours only.

The busses are well appointed and clean, with adequate legroom for even me at 6, 4” and various seats with a little more room for taller guests.

Our driver Elvio was charming and professional at both ends of the day checking the guest list whilst making us feel welcome.

That said and done, at circa £20 for a round trip each, the supplied AV equipment is a little lacking. Before the bus pulled away some fault with the AV sound system prevented all of the passengers from hearing the movie (we were all given multiple sets of complimentary headphones, but these were not at fault). When the audio did begin working the quality was comparable to a poor pirate copy you could source from a dodgy website. As an experience bracketing the studio tour it was a bit of a letdown on an otherwise excellent day, and could probably be rectified by an engineer quite quickly. Also, playing a different movie at the end of the day would be nice too, rather than a double dose of the Philosophers Stone.

All in all a nice experience getting to the studio that could be made better with a little time and money.

I reserved through Golden Tours due to it being the only place where I could get a last-minute harry potter tour ticket. Although I was worried due to the reviews, the company gives you what's promised.
The buses are okay, nothing out of the ordinary, although the sound of the TVs is probably the worst quality I've ever heard, there's no way you can watch the movie with that.
On that same note, finding the bus was extremely tough and there were no instructions on the confirmation email, if it wasn't for google maps I would've definitely missed my bus since you have to go through a maze to get there.
The tour is incredible and worth 100% of your money, and if you can't get your tickets from another page or the official page, then buy them here. However, the return bus is a complete scam.
I finished the tour at around 14:00, but for some reason, my return was programmed at 16:30, and there's no way I was staying around for 2 and a half hours. I don't get why they do the return this long, but I tried getting into an earlier return bus and they wouldn't let me get in, so I had to get an Uber to the nearest train station and take a train back to central London. This is extremely inconvenient, especially since I had already paid my way back, but what can I say...
I'm still glad I went to the tour, and if you're a HP fan you definitely won't be disappointed.

The actual Harry Potter tour was amazing. We saw and learned so much. However, I would not use golden tours for it. Customer service was awful and the communication between team members is horrific. We finished our tour early and so we called the office and they told us we could ride back on an earlier bus. We waited at the stop for 30 minutes past when we were told it would arrive. When we asked the associate of golden tours at the studio about the bus he rudely told us their was no bus coming for another 2 hours because it was a slow day so they didn’t have as many running. So we had to take a bus and multiple trains home. I asked for a partial refund since we had to find our own transportation but they would not give it because their manager said they always have buses coming within an hour or so of each other. The communication between members is AWFUL. Don’t recommend using them.

Highly recommended.
We booked the Golden Tours for our family's visit to the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio tour. I was a bit nervous that the bus ride would be cancelled due to lack of riders; however, it was not.

The bus stop was easy to find. You won't miss it with all of the Harry Potter decorated buses and travelers in Harry Potter gear.

The ride was about 45 minutes or so, but it seemed like the majority of it was spent trying to navigate through London.

Tip: by the time we finished the tour, we still had another 90 minutes for our return ride. Therefore, we went to the designated Golden Tours stop and asked to get on one of the earlier buses instead of having to wait another 90 minutes.
