Superbly entertaining and informative tour.

Our guide Laura was an excellent source of fascinating tidbits. As she took us around the various spots in Oxford that were used as inspiration for JK Rowling, as well as in the filming of the Harry Potter films, Laura kept up a constant witty commentary. Ticket prices for a couple of the sites were included in the tour price and entering as a group was smooth. At certain spots, Laura offered to take photos of the families, couples and individuals, ensuring that everyone had a memory to take home. The places were beautiful, the company delightful, and the overall tour was well worth the price. I highly recommend it.

Our guide was inspiring and inspired. Great tour.

I had no particular expectations of the tour. However when I turned up 35 minutes early I was greeted ny two very welcoming m e mbers of staff who assured me that my guide was going to ne the best ever. In addition, They were ha ppy to recommend the best cafe in the vicinity in which to spend my 25 minutes. The guide was an approachable and enthusiastic person who was able to present dry historical facts with verve and humour .

Really enjoyable tour of oxford with Harry Potter highlights

We were a group of 3 adults and 2 children. Peter the guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable of oxford and Harry Potter. Due to busyness the adults didn’t get into the divinity school but he made sure all the kids did and they got their pictures which is the main thing. Really enjoyed Christ Church and the tour was definitely worth the cost and time. Recommend

Very informed tour covering the majority of Oxfords uni heritage

A very good tour in a small group covering most of the university on a very hot August bank holiday weekend. Our Guide (Marie) was very knowledgeable and pleasant. We paid extra for entrance into Balliol and Divinity school but could have done with a bit extra time to explore.

Great overview of Oxford University history in a nutshell

Bonnie did a great job showing us quite a bit of history in a very entertaining and educational way, even though the group was rather large (24) it was easy to follow and hear her speak.
