This tour is a must for any Harry Potter fan, but also covers so much more. John not only connected scenes from the books/films to locations around Oxford, but he also explained how the culture at the University influenced the stories. This kind of depth is something that self-guided tours do not offer. Definite A+!

Our tour guide was Cloey, we really enjoyed our tour. We learned a lot about university life and the different building complexes. The highlights were of course the Harry Potter film locations. Cloey convinced us with her knowledge of the various universities and Harry Potter. We envy it, a great place to study. Always my pleasure :)

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!
