Overall rating

4.8 / 5

based on 56 reviews

You can experience changing of the guard without a guide, and we met several people that did, but without a guide you will miss 90% of the experience. Changing of the guard includes movements of the guards between locations, so it is important to know exactly where to be and when to be there. Our guide (Alan) has done this tour hundreds of times, so he had the locations exactly right, and timed the group's location at each stop right to the minute.

We had a nice day, learned and saw a lot. The guide was also super fun, the man knew a lot and also told it in a nice way. You also have a lot of freedom.

Excellent activity especially the Harry Potter studios, 4 hours goes by in the blink of an eye. Activity in Oxford is full of stories.

While we missed part of the show due to change of plans with the rainy weather, it was so beautiful and an informative tour

It was wonderful. Simon was a perfect guide for us!
