Great time and learned a lot

Our guides were students so they knew a lot about Oxford, Ms. Rowlings and Harry. We had gone to Warner Bros Studio the day before where we saw the sets so it was a perfect fit.

Hi Mary, Thanks for leaving such a super review. It does indeed help to share a passion for Oxford, when the guides are often themselves Oxford students. Thanks for choosing our tour!

The guide, Peter made the tour interesting as he is very knowledgeable as a scholar of oxford himself. He covered details which we would not have realised ourselves. Would recommend this tour with no doubt.
Very enjoyable

This tour was a wonderful way to get to know Oxford better. We spent a magical afternoon with Peter that both my 17 year old at six year old enjoyed. He was a fount of information on not just Harry Potter and JK Rowling but the wider literary life of Oxford past and present. He built in wonderful breaks and produced treats at all the right places. A must do!
Well paced

Sharon covered some nice anecdotes about the city as well as having great Harry Potter props and trivia. We didn’t stand too long in one place, didn’t walk long distances between hearing interesting stories, and there were things for the Potter expert (my son) as well as the parent (me).

Sharon was amazing! Her vast knowledge of the area, the history and many other things we asked about, along with her great sense of humor, made the tour one of our most memorable events of our trip!

I can't thank Peter the tour guide enough for such a wonderful walking tour of Oxford. It was both entertaining and informative and a great way to spend an afternoon wandering the streets and learning the history and folklore of Oxford. His knowledge of all things Harry Potter was second to none and it was fantastic to see the various novel and movie references and he also included much commentary on Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and so much more which took the tour to another level. All in all I would highly highly recommend this tour!!
