My family did the Oxford Ghost tour with Visit Oxford Tours. It was Amazing! Our guide Magnus was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour so fun. One of my children got a bit scared by the ghost stories, so he turned the tour more into an evening city tour. I greatly appreciated his flexibility and way to make the private tour perfect for our family. Alasdair, the person who set up our tour, was also excellent. He had excellent, fast communication. I highly recommend Visit Oxford Tours!

Absolutely brilliant. My daughter and I met Peter giving out discounts in Blackwell's Bookshop and loved so much what he was saying and how wonderfully he was interacting with his tour group members that we joined the Harry Potter Oxford tour with him the following day - and it was brilliant. Peter not only knows loads, but he delivers everything with such care and enthusiasm that you cannot help but to be swept along in his stories - and he looks after his groups beautifully too, giving us time to ask questions, m walk slowly or whatever we need. We had many great insights into not just Harry Potter, the stories and the films, but also about Lewis Carrol, Tolkein and many other great Oxford personalities and landmarks along the way. I would hugely recommend these tours. Not only that, but you get chocolates (for answering Potter questions correctly - or just being there!), costumes to wear and wands to yield. This tour was fantastic - and I highly recommend it. (I'll certainly be hooking up with Peter again when I'm next in Oxford for his Morse tours and Pubs tour too...!)

Had a tour with Michiel - he was very information and great on the history of Oxford. Was a very easy going, interesting tour and one I would recommend if you want to explore the sight of Oxford you wouldn't know to find otherwise!

We had an excellent time with our tour guide, Peter. Not only is he a Harry Potter expert who showed us as many film locations and inspirational places as he could possibly jam into our tour time, he is also quite the Oxford history buff. Learning so much about the town made us regret we only planned for one short day there. We absolutely plan to return again and would love to do another tour and learn even more!

What a great tour. Peter was the ultimate guide. Very very knowledgeable and not just about Harry Potter. He gave me updates and kept in touch giving me tips on parking, eating out and other attractions. Highly recommended. Thanks Peter
