Our Harry Potter tour with Gordon was perfect and sooo much more than we expected. It was so relaxing to have someone else looking after all the details. Gordon's knowlege of the Harry Potter movies, books and filming was amazingly extensive. He made us feel completely comfortable and also was easy to talk to about English life and ways. We loved how he revealed each site by 'quizzing' us about the movies and giving us clues. He was spot-on in taking multiple pictures of us at each site. He also shared interesting historical information on all the different sites we visited. The day was so well-planned and organized, we knew we were in good hands. Lunch at the George at Lacock was delicious and fun, can't believe we ate in a 14th century pub! So glad we included Lacock in our tour because so many areas were used in filming. We even got to take pictures in front of a street used in filming BBC's Pride and Prejudice. In Oxford, we learned a lot about the University and colleges. Gordon showed us a traditional dining hall as well as the one that the Hogwarts hall was based on, as well as many other filming sites. In London, we visited both Leaky Cauldron sites, King's Cross and several other sites. Gordon also made great recommendations for restaurants and attractions. We ate at Giraffe (by our hotel) based on his recommendation and loved it! Gordon was so much more than a tour guide for us, because we felt like we got to know a real Londoner during our time with him, which was just as great as the tour itself. The pictures turned out wonderfully and we are having fun putting together a slide show of them whilst watching the movies and finding the right scenes!
Whether you are a Harry Potter fan or not, Gordon is a true professional and gives a wonderful tour, and makes sure you have a fun and informative day! Cannot recommend him enough!!!!!
