What started out as a search for sold-out Harry Potter Tour tickets turned out to be a very welcome day-trip! We were welcomed at the bus by our very energetic guide Rachel. While driving towards our first stop Rachel already started providing small insights into both Oxford and Harry Potter, which was perfect to get into the day's mindset. At the center of Oxford itself we got both historical and current facts about Oxford nicely mixed with fun Harry Potter facts ... 10 Points to <insert HP House here>! The second part of the day was what my sister and I originally signed up for, the Warner Bros HP Studio Tour. Since I was last here, a lot of new set pieces and props have been added, making it a new and refreshing experience once again. If you're a Potterhead, this is a place to visit! Original sets, props, green-screen interactivity, screens everywhere explaining what you are seeing. (not spoiling all the info) All in all a long but very fun and enjoyable day! Kudos to guide Rachel!

This was the best tour I have been on in a long time. They took you around London on a bus and showed you some of the most famous sites, but added a Harry Potter twist to it all. Richard (Ron) brought magic to life on this tour not only did we get to drive around a see everything, but we also got off the bus for some close up photos and stories highly recommend

Just super good and a must for every Potterhead. Interesting exhibition with very nice photos and other things related to HP. The staff was very friendly and helpful. You can take photos of everything in the exhibition. For an extra charge you can buy photos of yourself eg on the broom and a magician&#39;s license.

Enjoyable tour. Our tour guide Tom was very knowledgeable and funny!!

Amazing time! Very professional and polite tour guide.
