Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Loved the tour with Vara Raturi! Her enthusiasm for the Harry Potter book/films matched our own and we thoroughly enjoyed all the added ephemera of the university itself. She was incredibly kind and patient and even provided additional requested information after the tour. Thanks so much, Vara for an unforgettable experience!

If I could give zero green circles to rate our 'experience' I would! We specifically travelled over 4 hours from our home on the Friday night to be local for our private punting tour. We arrived a good 30 minutes early to make sure we were in the correct place. We waited until 11:15, which was 15 mins after our tour was meant to start. No-one turned up and no email or phone call to say cancelled. We paid over £22 to park in Oxford city centre and all a complete waste of our time and money. Thankfully Viator were quick to answer the phone as the boat house telephone number just rang and rang. Really disappointed. Common courtesy is to let people know. Has now made me wary for any experience we book if the provider can just not show up! Hopefully someone will get to enjoy the experience one day but make sure they will actually show up before travelling for miles!

The tour was fantastic. Led by a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable Oxford University student. We learnt a lot about Harry Potter connections to Oxford as well as about Oxford University culture and traditions.

What can I say? Great, wonderful, amazing? Any word seems to be un understatement for the walking tour we made with guide Alec. We went to several of the filming locations (Divinity College, New College), but he showed and told us so much more. About Oxford, its colleges, the ceremonies, student life, other filming locations, literally too much to remember. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in Harry Potter or Oxford. It is very much worth its value.

Alec was a fantastic tour guide and we learned so much about the city we live in. Alec was funny as well as informative, we had access to otherwise closed areas of the university and the 1.5 hrs flew by. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour!

We had a fantastic time, thoroughly enjoying our tour of the Oxford Campus. Our guide was Merton College PhD candidate & absolutely made the tour the success that it was, due to her personal insights around the University, her bubbly personality and ability to tell stories. Throughout our 2-1/2hr tour, she kept a good pace, was conscientious in allowing for interactive questions, while also making sure that we covered the considerable amount of walking that was necessary to see everything. We also took the optional Christ Church entry which is a must for a more detailed view of the largest college in Oxford. Top marks to our student tour guide and to the program that hired her.

Wow! I learned so much about this beautiful city! Our tour guide, Alec, had so much information to share, which he did in an engaging way. It was a fascinating tour that I would thoroughly recommend.
