I have lived in Oxford for many years but learnt all kinds of fascinating facts on a wonderful general tour of Oxford, taking in the main sights and some out-of-the-way places too. The guide was well versed in the history, informative and entertaining. Highly recommended!

Dear Marianne, Thanks for recommending us here on tripadvisor about how our tours combine the magic of Hogwarts with the city of dreaming spires. Most appreciated. Sincerely, Alasdair

The tour guide was funny and knows Oxford and Harry Potter very well. It was enjoyable to walk through Oxford and see many locations connected to the Harry Potter stories while listening to all kinds of stories.

Maria was a very lovely and enthousiastic guide during the tour. However, I think the tour could be improved by adding more sights to the tour (especially related on HP, as the tour is related to HP as well!) It is better to see Oxford...More
