      Outstanding Tour Guide
      Billy_S, Aug 2023
      Our tour guide was so patient and kind. She made this a wonderful experience for us and our granddaughter. We are so grateful!!
      Had a great time!
      Romina_B, July 2023
      Harry Potter Studios are a must see for HP fans! Also loved the visit to Oxford. I took away one star because: 1) studios are visited at your own place and by yourself, the “professional guide” was not included for the studios, only for Oxford, which was a quick tour, 2) the location of the map is confusing and almost thought we were not going to make it.
      Great time at Harry Potter and Oxford!
      Brenda_L, July 2023
      We had such a great time on the tour! It was just the right combination of group / independent time, which we loved! Our guide made sure that everyone, including the people not overly familiar with Harry Potter were included and felt welcome. We would highly recommend!
      Accessible tour option 👌
      Eoin_O, July 2023
      Worth every cents! Our daughter was on wheelchair and transportation with Peter was better than any travel experience we had thus far. Plenty of room in bus's trunk for chair and not having to fold it was great. Our tour guide, Amber was hilarious and fun. Harry Porter Studio blow our minds. More than we expected. Oxford city stop was perfect to end our tour. Love and with every penny spent!
      The most amazing tour for Harry Potter fans
      Betty_K, May 2023
      The most amazing tour for a Harry Potter fan. So much to see and so thoughtfully laid out. I am so impressed with the science and art behind the making of this movie. There was plenty of time to see everything. There is a variety of food options, even with food allergies. We really enjoyed Oxford as well.
      Well worth it including seeing Oxford.

      Everything was good. the tour guide was very good. The set up was very interesting. Loved the way the exhibition was telling the story.
      Fun day at Warner...

      Fun day at Warner Brothers studios and interesting walking tour in Oxford. Catherine was a great guide.
      Good depending on weather
      christinasdeasy, Dec 2022
      I mostly just booked this tour because regular tickets to the Harry Potter studios were already sold out far in advance when I tried to buy them. I also wanted to see Oxford anyway. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and an Oxford alumni. We went to Oxford first and did a walking tour, then had about an hour of free time before heading to the Harry Potter studios. I thought the walking tour of Oxford was longer than it needed to be for the average person. If you love history then you will probably love the tour, but I found it a little boring. Options for buying lunch are limited. Some of the souvenir shops were closed too. The Harry Potter studios were really fun. The tour gives you 4 hours and we were done in 3. At the end, there is a little cafe you can eat and sit in until your tour group leaves. There was no WiFi in the coach and our tour start/end time was pushed back 2 hours. I was notified in advance of this and it didn’t affect me personally, but that is something to consider if your plans aren’t flexible because there are no refunds offered. Also consider the weather - you will spend a lot of time outside in Oxford. Part of the Harry Potter studio tour is outside as well. I was lucky that the only good weather day during my week long trip to London was the day I did this tour. If the weather is bad, it may ruin your day. Overall, I would recommend this tour but if you’re not interested in Oxford and history, I would skip it and book a tour with just the Harry Potter studios if you can.

      We are a family with older and younger children. This tour was perfect!!!! There was something for everyone. We loved it!!!!
      Definitely a must
      Miguel_P, Nov 2019
      Despite not being a big fan of Harry Potter, it was an amazing experience. Our guide, Edward, was very professional and enlightened us about Oxford history, and how the culture and history of England help create an imaginarium called Harry Potter. And the Warner Brother studios are most definitely a must. Huge production, and an inspiring philosophy of work. Price/quality well balanced. I absolutely recommend it.
      An excellent trip. Warner Bros...
      Anne S, Aug 2017
      An excellent trip. Warner Bros Studio London is quite hard to get to, so it simplified things going on a tour and having a bus take you there. By the time we got our ticket and got into the studio we only had just over 3 hours, which was a little bit short, as we did need to rush at the end, didn't have time to eat during the visit tricky if you are there with children and we had to constantly keep track of the time. I think 4 hours in the actual studio would have been better. The studio itself is fantastic and we really enjoyed the visit. The walking tour and time in Oxford was excellent - the tour guide was very informative, friendly and helpful. A long day, but would highly recommend this combined tour.
      Booked this tour since the family...
      Andrew, July 2017
      Booked this tour since the family was interested in seeing the Harry Potter tour and overall it was okay. Pickup was on-time, however, some others in the group were not notified of the later pickup time so they waited an additional hour. Unlike the description here, the tour contained more than 9 people and we were transported in a mini-bus. The mini-bus itself did not seem to have a functional AC, so we were all kept warm in the bus, though the fans themselves were working. When you arrive to the studio/tour for Harry Potter, the tour guide leaves since it is self-guided. They give you a good amount of time to go through and see everything and grab a bite to eat at the studio and do some gift shopping. Afterwards, they take you to Oxford and give a small walking tour followed by an hour of free time to see the sites. Oxford itself was a really nice town with a lot of small shops an hour isn't enough to explore the whole town since it is fairly large, but it is enough to give thoughts about returning to see what else is around. Our tour guide was pretty great he was knowledgable in the area of Harry Potter and Oxford and was accommodating to the needs of the group and tried to talk to the driver to fix the air. Overall, this tour is okay, for the most part, you are paying for is the transportation and the entrance fees.

      Magnifique, mieux que a quoi je m'attendais. Une visite à ne pas manquer pour les fans et même pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas tant Harry Potter. Beaucoup de surprise...
      Tolles HP - Erlebnis !
      Silke_S, May 2023
      Harry Potter Studios für jeden Harry Potter Fan ein muss. Die Oxford Tour war ok (haben diese Tour allerdings nur gebucht, da andere HP Tickets nicht mehr verfügbar waren) Leider kam der Bus 45 Minuten zu spät, ärgerlich wenn man pünktlich bereit steht. Super netter Reiseführer !
      Belle journée chez Harry
      Jessie_F, Dec 2019
