Wonderful Harry Potter Film Locations Tour of Oxford!

Peter gave me and my family a great Harry Potter tour of Oxford, including Christchurch. We saw some very interesting buildings and objects, and learned not just about Harry Potter filming locations, but also about the history of Oxford. Peter gave us a lot of great information and was very patient with my highly inquisitive 9 year old son, as well as with my 3 and 6 year olds. We got extra time on our tour and then Peter offered everyone a 15% discount at a great bookshop (largest one in Europe). He walked my family to an amazing pizzeria afterwards and then waited for us to finish so that he could walk us to the closest Oxford Tube stop. Peter was very generous with his time and knowledge with everybody. Oxford is a beautiful town and I highly recommend visiting it and booking a tour with this tour operator (I believe it's called Visit Oxford Tours).

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.

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

Fantastic tour (professional, informative, friendly, culture and film)

Peter was a wonderful guide. He added to a tour about Harry Potter films and books lots of extras: about Oxford's history and culture, other authors and their books (e.g. Narnia). I could not have seen so much in such a short time by myself. Definitely, we will recommend the tour and Peter to other visitors, and we might return to take other tours ourselves.

A great afternoon of fantasy and history!

Guide Mikhail was competent, knowledgeable on Harry Potter and other fantasy literature, as well as on British history with an Oxonian perspective. A learned person, he blended the two with good humor and suspense. The "tests" applied to the group during the tour added interest. A great experience! We strongly recommend.
