As part of a Harry Potter themed hen party we booked a private Harry Potter tour. Heidi was fantastic. She took us to lots of places across the city, included information about other authors and she did her best to me sure we could see some inside sights despite covid. Heidi was friendly and knowledgeable and would definitely book her again if I came back to Oxford.
Thank you!

Thank you very much indeed for this lovely 5 star review for your private Harry Potter tour. I was apprehensive as, due to covid, it had been a little while since I had connected with Harry in Oxford! So your 5 star review means a lot! So delighted that you enjoyed for the special weekend and I greatly appreciate you taking the time to review. With very best wishes Heidi

Great tour! Elizabeth, our guide was very knowledgeable about all things University of Oxford, the organization, college process, etc. She was delightful and was able to take us into one of the colleges and provided tips on which other colleges to visit during our time off. Highly recommend this walking tour. If you’re able to, I recommend booking a 30-60 minute tour of the Bodleian Libraries (Divinity School and Humphreys), which can only be booked directly through the university website, and is a good idea to work around the private guided walking tour of Oxford.

Thank you for taking the time to review. I do try and match the client with the guide and felt that Elizabeth would be the perfect fit for your group although to be able to do that - people need to book in advance like yourselves. I agree, to me - the perfect day in Oxford to discover it fully is a Bodleian Library Tour followed by a walking tour with us (or VV!). With very best wishes Heidi

Heidi was a great guide for us, very knowledgeable and informative and with a good sense of humour too. Despite not being able to enter the colleges, she gave us a very good overview from the outside, lots of history, famous former students, architecture etc. We did go into the Divinity School and the University Church which were so interesting, and also gave us a chance to shelter from the pouring rain.......

I would highly recommend Oxford Walking tours, and would hope to use them again in the future.
Thanks again Heidi!

Thank you very much - your recommendation is much appreciated. I so enjoy meeting people and showing them Oxford - we all do! We are so fortunate as qualified guides to have access to places that other guides might not be able to get into - such as The Church and The Divinity School. Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, it was my pleasure to guide you around Oxford and hope to see you again. With warmest wishes Heidi

Heidi, our guide, was very knowledgeable, caring, thoughtful and responsive to our needs. She moved at our pace and found places to sit in the shade when we needed them. Just the right amount of time to find ourselves well informed but not overwhelmed. Highly recommend.

Thank you very much! I am so delighted you enjoyed the tour with us. All our guides are used to adapting to the weather (come rain or shine) and any closures on the day. You are so right - a tour with a qualified guide is the best way to maximise your time in Oxford and to give you an orientation so that you can enjoy exploring independently afterwards. I hope you enjoyed the Westgate! Thank you again for taking the time to leave this review which means a lot to us here at Walking Tours of Oxford. With very best wishes Heidi and team

Thank you for this lovely review. I am so glad that it all worked out and I thought Alastair would be a perfect guide for your group and interests. He has years of knowledge and is an alumni of Oxford university. I do agree, a private tour is the best way to truly discover Oxford and allows for an interaction with your guide which is missing on many group tours - I have seen groups recently with over 50 people! It is best to book direct on our website so that I can discuss options. Thank you again for taking the time to review. With best wishes Heidi

We did a private walking tour with Heidi (there were just two of us) and she was a wonderful guide. We had mentioned that we were fans of Lewis Carroll and C.S. Lewis as well as Morse, Lewis and Endeavor and she gave us information on all of those as well as Harry Potter and an overall general knowledge of the colleges etc. As we toured throughout the city inspirations of our authors were revealed and she made it obvious she had taken the time to brush up on our interests before we came. Heidi gave me a couple of C.S. Lewis moments I will not give away but they made my day!! A great way to see the city and learn so much more than we could have on our own. I would highly recommend Heidi and a private walking tour of Oxford!!
