    Truly Unforgettable Experience
    We went on this small group tour of the studios last week and it was honestly amazing!!! We have been to the studios before and absolutely loved it then, but this evening option is truly something special! On ‘normal’ studio tours there’s always a long queue to start the tour and you are grouped with probably 200 people. On this experience we were whisked straight through to start the tour with just our small group from International Friends. It does give you a feel of being a VIP! Entering The Great Hall with so few other people really gives you the wow factor - then to add to it you get champagne and fireworks!! There are studio staff in the great hall, who are really engaging and happy to share all their Harry Potter knowledge. After leaving the Great Hall you begin to explore the sets. This is where this tour really feels magical - there’s no queuing to see sets or see demos. No waiting for lots of people to move out of the way to get photos. I even managed to get a video walking through the forbidden forest with absolutely no one else in it!! The studios really is an amazing experience - Harry Potter fan or not. Is this semi-private option more expensive than a standard tour? Yes. Is it worth the money? Absolutely!! Thank you International Friends for a truly unforgettable tour!

    Great Day Tour to Harry Potter Studios
    Our family of four had a wonderful day tour with Rachael of International Friends. Everything was simple and planned accordingly, and it was the perfect mix of free time to wander and information. Started the day with a short drive, then 4 hours of independent time to explore the Harry Potter Studios as a family and enjoy lunch. Around 1pm we made our way to Oxford and enjoyed a nice tour of the village and also had an hour to explore the university town on our own. The transportation provided was nice, safe, and relaxing so we could all nap in between our stops. Our guide, Rachael, was very lovely and was fantastic with kids. She offered fun trivia and awarded Hogwarts House Points which my family really enjoyed.

    Best Experience Ever
    If you’re a Harry Potter fan you need to do this tour!! You could stay here for hours with the amount of things that you see. I would recommend this company, they are super friendly and care about your experience! Plus you get to drink a glass of champagne in the great hall! 10/10 would recommend to any Harry Potter fans!

    Whole family loved it
    Our family of 4 (ages 12-52) went on this trip last night and we loved it. 2 mad Harry Potter fans, 1 film industry wannabe, 1 shopaholic, there was something for everyone. Being a small group made it all the more special and relaxed as well. Really good time and massive thanks to the team at International Friends.

    A night we will never forget!!
    Wow!!! What an evening! I took my 9 year old daughter on the private Harry Potter studio tour. We had been 2 years ago on the normal tour and had wanted to go back. A group of only 50 people, drinks in the Great Hall, fireworks and special effects, private wand lessons, broomstick rides with no queues, a 1-2-1 tutorial to make a howler, every interactive section to ourselves. It really was magical (we felt like celebrities!!). A night we won’t forget xx

    A VERY special experience.
    I’ve just had the most amazing evening thanks to the special access these guys have. Valentina the guide was wonderful, creating magic before we even entered the studios. The studios are excellent and worth visiting BUT on this tour it was just our group for the intro and the Great Hall. It was so special with a glass of Champagne (or non-alcoholic option). We were then free to visit the rest of the tour at our own pace and even in that part there was hardly anyone else around. I saw everything, no queues. It felt like the WB staff were there just for us! This is a great tour, International Friends. Worth the money for such a special experience. Thank you!

    Don't miss this private tour with champagne, an absolute must-do for any Harry Potter fan
    This exclusive private tour of the studios was an incredible experience! As the very last tour of the night, there was no one in front of us or behind us, so the whole evening felt completely private and our photos are amazing as there are no people in the background! The glass of champagne was such a treat too. The Studios themselves are completely magical and an absolute must-do for any Harry Potter (or film) fan. Seeing the real Great Hall, the real Herbology Greenhouse, hundreds of props and costumes and sets is such an exciting and surreal experience, and the amazing staff are on hand to give out all sorts of behind-the-scenes knowledge to bring the sets to life. We spent over three hours there and could have easily spent even longer, there's so much to see. Highly recommend!

    Great tour
    Was looking for tickets to Harry Potter studios last minute and booked the Studios/Oxford tour. Spent about 5 hours at the studios, which was the perfect amount of time, then over to Oxford for a short walking tour. Amber was great, very friendly and knowledgeable!

    Harry Potter champagne tour with International Friends review.
    As a devoted Harry Potter fan, the Champagne Reception and Late Night Warner Bros Studio Tour surpassed all expectations. The moment I entered the studio I was immediately drawn into the magical world of Harry Potter. The exceptional service provided by the company organizing the event was outstanding. Booking the event was effortless thanks to the user-friendly online platform. They were friendly and accommodating, ensuring everyone had a seamless experience, even when faced with delays. The tour begins in a room where cell phones and cameras are not allowed, which enhanced the feel of the experience and making it even more exclusive to the guests. The Champagne Reception set the perfect tone with its unique and enjoyable experience just before the tour. The pre-tour champagne was a delightful addition to the late night experience. Once the tour began, it felt like stepping into J.K. Rowling's books and the iconic films. Taking pictures behind the scenes and seeing real props from the movies was surreal. The late-night tour added an extra level of excitement, offering an unforgettable experience without the usual crowds. It was amazing being able to take pictures without several people in them as well as looking around at your own pace without feeling rushed  by others. For any Harry Potter enthusiast, this event is a must-attend, offering a truly unreal experience. Without a doubt, it is worth the money. Regardless of the price, I would pay extra for this experience rather than going when it's busy.

    Simple but easy
    Very easy way to fill up a day and see the most out of Harry Potter origins. The bus is very comfortable and our guide was great. I do wish we got to see more and with more variety in Oxford, but otherwise it was an easy way to see a lot without having to organize too much. Definitely bring a cold lunch! There’s not enough time for you to get food throughout the day and you will be happy to have a sandwich on the bus.

    A fun day out even if you’re not a Harry Potter fan
    I took this day trip as I had a spare day in London on a business trip and I’d never been to either Oxford or Warner Brothers Studios. Overall it was decent. The coach was comfortable and the host did a decent job. It wasn’t as entertaining as I’d hoped but it was reasonable. Oxford was dreary and the winter weather didn’t help - it was difficult to enjoy whilst standing in the rain (no fault of the tour). Compared to Harvard, it felt less lively and more dated. We weren’t there for long before heading to Warner Bros for a full 4 hours. I’m not a massive Harry Potter fan but I’ve seen the films and appreciate the world building and effort that was put into the studio. The park was busy but it was easy to see everything in about 2-3 hours with time to spare for the gift shop and cafe. Word of advice - the food and drink there is appalling so do yourself a favour and eat at Oxford. The tour ended around 6:30pm back in London.

    A lovely evening at Warner Bros. Studio!
    This was amazing! We were the last group on the tour so got to see the studios without the crowds and with plenty of time to see everything. Enjoying a glass of Champagne in the Great Hall of Hogwarts was pretty special!

My wife and I booked this tour in order to spend time between a cruise disembarkation in Southampton and a hotel stay at Heathrow airport.
Our tour guide was Steve. He was friendly, knowledgeable and incredibly customer service oriented.
It was Friday 13th. An ominous sign for assorted unexpected "happenings". Cruise terminal chaos, flower show closing Salisbury cathedral and requiring routing due to an unexpected traffic accident. The addition of a coach to assist with more rapid transport of passengers and luggage to various hotels in Heathrow added some more stress with baggage location and transfer for a number of customers.
Through it all, Steve was cool, calm and collected.
Then, I discovered I'd left my Kindle in the seat pocket of the original bus and incredibly after a few texts and a phone call, Steve located it and even personally delivered it to my hotel!
This was all most capably coordinated through Louise.
Highly recommend this tour!

A busy day and you do keep moving, but if you want to cram this much into a day, it is what you should expect! Love our guide and driver, very efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. They made it happen, which is not easy given potential crowds and heavy traffic. They were right there where and when they said they would be, dealt with the luggage hassle so we could forget it for the day, and made everything pretty seamless. A great choice post-cruise if you have the energy to keep rolling. Don’t whine if you’re tired; you should have picked a quieter activity! Delivered promptly to our Heathrow hotel no muss no fuss. Would book with them again in a heartbeat. Thank you, International Friends!

What a fantastic tour! Sean was a wonderful tour guide taking us to Salsbury Cathedral, Stonehenge and Windor Castle. We would have loved to see the Magna Carta as well, but the exhibition was under reconstruction. Sean escorted us to our hotel at the end of the tour. Thank you! :-)

I have to agree with Familytraveler69’s review. Rushed and minimal guidance. Salisbury was a waste of time - very rushed. Stonehenge was perfect - the amount of time here allowed us to enjoy the attraction and not feel rushed. Windsor was just strange. Our guide was either guiding, talking on his cell (apparently there was an issue with the feeder vehicles that we are split up into for drop off) or reminding us that we could explore on our own. We eventually left the “tour” and just had lunch. The drop off was awful. We were dropped off approximately 2 miles from our Airbnb. The company had communicated with me about the location and we were aware that they were not able to drop us off on the actual street that the Airbnb was located by that they would get us as close as possible. Two miles was not what I would consider close. Especially as the cross street less than a block from the Airbnb was where we were picked up and dropped off by all other drivers during our London stay. If you are staying in a hotel on their list or going to the airport you should be fine.

Excellent customer service. Upon exiting the cruise terminal, we were greeted by our tour guide (Andrew). From there, we went to three tourist landmarks such as the Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge and Winsor Castle. Andrew was very knowledgeable of the historical facts regarding these three landmarks and the surrounding areas. As per our booking, we were transported to our London Hotel and arrived in front of our hotel at 5:30 p.m.

Highly recommended for exceptional service based from our own experienced.

This tour isn't for the faint of heart, because everything (and everyone!) moves so fast. You stop at 3 locations: Salisbury, Stonehenge, and Windsor Castle, and you get a certain amount of time at each (not nearly enough, but that's a given with all group tours, not just this company). We felt a little rushed at Windsor and we felt like we had too much time at Stonehenge. Our tour guide, Jake(?), was energetic and full of facts about our locations.

The real value of this tour is the transfer directly to your hotel. International Friends arranged for 2 private taxis to take 10 out of their 34 passengers into central London, directly to our respective hotel doorsteps; this service alone was worth the cost of the day, given how much luggage we had and how stressful it would have been to transfer into London from the Heathrow tube with our huge suitcases during rush hour. We also had an excellent cab driver, I think his name was Eric?

My husband and I took this post-cruise tour. We highly recommend it! Our tour guide, Andrew, was on time at the port pickup as well as each tour exit time. Andrew was extremely knowledgeable about the tour sights, surroundings countryside, and history. We were dropped off at Heathrow perfectly on time. Just can't say enough about Andrew and this tour! Spectacular!

We waited outside the Queen Mary terminal as told. We did not leave there for over 2 hours. Very poor communication . Did not know where the transportation nor guide were. Due to delay at start we we were rushed through the places we visited.
Very frustrating.
Very poorly organized.

Good ,well-paced tour. Could have spent less time in Salisbury (castle not open) and more in Windsor for lunch and "on your own " time. Great service with hotel drop off. Just right for a post cruise trip. Niguel (guide) and Chris (driver) were great. Pick up at Heathrow very easy

AMAZING time with Mike and Keith on May 13th after an amazing Trans Atlantic cruise!

Our first time in England and this was a great "sampler" of destinations. Made us want to come back to explore the English countryside. Loved Salisbury.

Would definitely use this tour company again!
