Trevor was great. He met us on time and was friendly and welcoming. He ensured enough time was provided for any late arrivals and once ready to start the tour, did so ensuring our safety explaining about social distancing.....and Oxford bicycle traffic! The rout was informative, upbeat, amusing and extremely interesting with Trevor providing ample photo opportunities. He made the tour like appear effortless and his storytelling was right on point with lots of interesting factual information - things we were not aware of before. We would highly recommend taking this tour with Trevor. You will not be disappointed. Interestingly, I overheard a couple of other tour guides when we were out and about and they weren’t a patch on Trevor. Trevor was incredibly respectful of others, those studying and those working in buildings we stopped outside of.

The guide was fantastic! Communication was brilliant from 2 days before the tour with a call From the guide to introduce himself to a call this evening to see if we enjoyed the experience. Lots of knowledge and facts on the tour which was great and we were well looked after. My father was 70 with limited mobility and the guide showed understanding and considered which was a nice touch. Thank you a great experience! Lisa, Haydn & Dad

Oxford: Making of Harry Potter Tour Reviewed by

Rainy day, but nice, as it was quiet. Edward, our guide was excellent. He paced the tour well, described what we saw and gave some ideas where to go after the tour. We went to The Turf Tavern for a beer, and had cup of coffee in the Congregation room. Edward answered all our questions, told us interesting anecdotes, and also included just enough personal information to make Oxford more interesting.

Walking Tour of Oxford and University Reviewed by

We were taken around Oxford and had buildings and areas explained to us. Our guide also told a few local tales and pointed out other points of interest you might not find if walking around on your own. Trevor our guide was also entertaing and knowledgeable of the area and colleges.

We had a great time. Michael was incredibly knowledgeable and had lots of stories to tell us as we walked around the city, varying from more historical to more recent. Though we weren't allowed into the buildings due to Coronavirus, we still had a great time and would recommend it.
