Oxford came alive !
, Oct 2021
Brilliant tour. Our guide Peter had a wealth of knowledge and a great way of delivering it. Loved the tour, kept our children entertained. I doubt we would have learnt as much about the city had we toured it ourself. Would def use this company again and request Peter.
Magnificent and marvelous
, Sep 2021
The whole tour was so exciting from the beginning to the end. I would go one more time just to keep learning. I really enjoyed every part of it. Peter - our guide - was absolutely amazing. My best recommendations!!
Real nice experience
, Sep 2021
Nice experience, was educated about the history of Oxford and Harry Potter and shown some places I would’ve struggled to find by myself. Would recommend, highly knowledgeable tour guide

Hi Matthew, Thanks for recommending your tour with us. Sincerely, Alasdair
100 house points to our tour guide Peter, for going above and beyond to make it an unforgettable experience
, Sep 2021
The in depth knowledge that our guide, Peter, had of the Harry Potter story, its author and Oxford city made it very enjoyable. Our guide quizzed us along the way, making it fun for all in the group, stopping to point things out, tell funny stories and show us photos relevant to the tour
Easy day out
, Sep 2021
It was great walking round with Alasdair, he is incredibly knowledgeable in all things Oxford. It was pretty fun joking around and hearing all the great facts and stories. The Harry Potter references were an additional bonus. Would recommend!

Hi Sazia, Thanks for recommending your tour with me here and hopefully see you again next time you have visitors.
Not just for Harry Potter fans.
, Sep 2021
We attended the Harry Potter tour at the weekend and my daughter loved it. Peter was extremely knowledgeable and ensured it remained fun for all. Including myself who knows nothing about Harry Potter! Would recommend to all, regardless of your potter knowledge.
Must Do Tour
, Sep 2021
I highly recommend this tour. I’m not the biggest Harry Potter fan but it was really interesting and had a great mix of fun facts on all literary luminaries at Oxford. Peter was one of my favorite tour guides of all time. His knowledge and rapport were really impressive.
Fantastic tour
, Sep 2021
A fantastic tour, Peter was amazingly knowledgeable and very funny. Children and adults held enthralled. He went over and beyond to make sure everyone was happy and his enthusiasm for Oxford and HP shone through. If we ever come back to Oxford we will definitely be booking in to hi pub crawl tour!

Hi Katrina, Thanks for the super recommendation. We hope to see you again, as you suggested, for a pub tour or cycle tour etc. Sincerely, Alasdair
Interesting, entertaining and varied tour
, Aug 2021
We were fortunate to receive a recommendation from a past customer, and booked onto the Harry Potter walking tour last week (26th August). We were so pleased we did! Prior to the tour, the communication from the company was exemplary - clear and helpful information confirming the booking, and advising on allowing time to navigate the public transport system. Our tour guide, Peter, was fantastic. He was obviously so passionate and enthusiastic about Oxford, Harry Potter and the English language. He talked about JK Rowing, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Shakespeare and more. He easily held the attention of our two children (13 and 10) as well as us adults! He went to great lengths to involve everyone on the tour, asking questions and encouraging participation. He even thought to feed the children part-way round, which was a lovely touch. Peter was considerate and hugely knowledgeable. He easily answered any ad hoc questions about Oxford and the university. He also gave recommendations of what to do and where to go once the tour had finished. Despite my wife growing up in the area (and attending secondary school in Oxford) we all learned a lot and all visited sights we’d not been to before. Upon returning to the in-laws that evening, we were able to tell them a fair few things they didn’t know either! This tour - and this company - is highly recommended. We hope we will be able to book again for a similar tour in the future.
Best tour in Oxford
, Aug 2021
We had a fantastic tour yesterday with Peter! He was very knowledgeable and passionate about both Harry Potter and Oxford. We learnt a lot (despite thinking we were already massive Harry Potter fans!) Thank you for the many jokes and the delicious cake 🧁 We will definitely be returning to Oxford and look forward to another one of your delightful tours! Thank you so much, Dan and Jade
