After REALLY looking at my work/tour/moving schedule, it's clear I can't add any additional tours before I leave. I encourage ALL OF YOU to come to the picnic on August 1st @ 3PM in Central Park. It will be very nerdy and I will have self-guided HP Met handouts for your own exploration. Thanks for all of the support!

We reached 200 likes! Thanks Joseph for getting us there and for coming on a tour :D

Dearest HP fans,

It is with a heavy heart that I tell you the last Groupon Deal is live! It's already sold so many in the less than 24hrs after being alerted to its existence by Groupon staff. You can hopefully still buy tickets here: https://www.groupon.com/deals/gl-emily-turner-8

I am moving to Seattle and thus will no longer be doing Harry Potter tours of the Met. The last day will be Harry's Birthday, July 31. I can't thank all of you enough for all of the support and excitement you've shown over the past year. This has truly been one of the best experiences of my life.

To celebrate the end, I will be hosting a picnic in Central Park August 1st at 3pm for Harry's Birthday. There will be treats, games, and a costume contest! Details can be found on the event page posted below.

Thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart! Hope to see you all there :)

Emily

One tour today then a brief holiday pause! Don't you fret - new dates are up for 2015. Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has helped me make this possible - whether through words of encouragement, getting experimental with me on a test tour, or coming on a tour and spreading the word! It's been a wonderful time and I can't wait for next year :)

I'm excited to announce that HP Tours of the Met will be happening through SideTours, a website that offers users unique ways to experience their city. This will help us reach more HP fans across NYC and will provide us a ton of logistical support.

What this means moving forward:
*We will be charging! Tickets will be $40 a person. Most of this goes to the cost of producing the tours - chiefly the ticket price, which is a fixed rate for third party tours as opposed to the Met's regular pay-what-you-wish policy for individuals.
*All tickets will be sold via SideTours (and SideTours on Groupon).
*The official launch will be August 30th, with tickets going on sale hopefully within a week.
*We will have at least one more test tour before the official launch: Sat Aug 23 3-4:30PM!

Thanks so much to everyone who has come on test tours so far! They have been so helpful in making this the best tour possible and I couldn't have done all of this without you.
