Amazing Harry Potter/Oxford experience - The Harry Potter tour was amazing! We got to see many interesting historic places and amazing movie sets. Our guide, Jake, I mean Gilderoy Lockhart, was phenomenal! He was dedicated, involving, professional, and he was extremely witty and charismatic! I would go on this tour again without a doubt! It was worth every penny!

Fantastic tour! - Our walking tour was excellent! Our guide was very informative, knowledgeable, and was very animated in his job! Would highly recommend this tour to not only HP fans, but anyone interested in film locations, and book inspirations around Oxford.

Jake is the best (his words and ours 😜) - Brilliant! Our guide (Jake I think) was the best guide ever! Our girls (the HP fans) were his shadows for the whole tour, lapping up everything he said. He totally brought everyone together and we had a great time. Thank you!

Great Tour! Thanks, Jake!! - So much fun!! First, let me say how amazing the tour was because of Jake. He made our day! So good at his job. We had kids on our tour who were huge Harry Potter fans and he indulged them in all the fun and magic of HP. But we also had a friend with us who knows almost nothing about Harry Potter and she had the best time! Jake covered interesting facts about the history of Oxford, CS Lewis, Tolkien and so much more than just the JK Rowling series. This was truly a highlight for us! Thanks again, Jake!

Enjoyable but not amazing - This tour was just Ok. It wasn't as interesting or fun as our Muggles walking tour in London. Still, it was nice to visit Oxford and walk around a few of the sites. Lovely area with lots of history. We had to purchase separate tickets for Christ Church (dining hall) and Bodleian Library.

Thank you! - We enjoyded the walking tour and the guide was really competent and nice. We liked that guide "took his audience", he was good group leader and easy-going. It was very special that we got scarves - a little thing made our tour magnificent.

Okay tour - This tour brings you around to the main areas of Oxford to see. It does have some aspect of Harry Potter but the tour was sort of in the middle of an Oxford tour and Harry Potter tour, felt like it couldn’t make up its mind. Oxford is lovely but I would opt for just a general Tour of the city
