A fascinating wander around breathtakingly beautiful Oxford in glorious October sunshine. Tour guide Jim was incredibly knowledgable and engaging, my daughter (aged 8), is a huge Harry Potter fan and was in awe as we visited filming locations and sights which inspired those films and the likes of CS Lewis’s’ Narnia chronicles, but equally delighted to learn of the history of the college buildings themselves. A wonderful 90 minutes, thank you!

Our guide and his guide in training (current student) were terrific! They were knowledgeable, enthusiastic, funny and flexible -exactly the tour we were looking for. My daughter is a real Potter expert and she found the afternoon both entertaining and educating. Our highest recommendation.

Unsere Reiseführerin war Cloey, unsere Tour hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Wir haben viel über das Universitätsleben und die verschiedene Gebäudekomplexe erfahren. Highlights waren natürlich die Harry Potter Drehorte. Cloey hat uns mit ihrem Wissen zu den verschiedenen Universitäten und über Harry Potter überzeugt. Wir beneiden sie, ein toller Ort zum studieren. Immer wieder gerne :)
