Peter was the most phenomenal tour guide we've encountered during our travels around the world. He seamlessly integrated nuanced history of the founding of Oxford to the many interesting personalities that have inhabited the city, and he catered the amount of information provided based off our interest in the topic at hand. While we signed up for a 'Harry Potter'... More

Our tour guide Peter, was hugely knowledgeable and very entertaining as he lead us around the various Harry Potter filming locations in Oxford. We also learnt about some of Oxfords other great authors C S Lewis, Tolkien and Lewis Carroll and took in the sights of the Bodleian library, New College and enjoyed a cheeky quip about Magpie Lane. Thoroughly... More

We were running very late as parking in Oxford is extremely difficult! However, we were guided where to park by Peter and he came out to meet us even though we were way behind schedule. Peter was so kind, informative and professional. He has great knowledge of Oxford and he delivers the tour in an interesting and fun way. He... More

Our guide Peter Thorn did an outstanding job! He was quite informative VERY accommodating and was extremely thorough ... the tour lasted close to 2 1/2 hours and was supposed to be 90 minutes! We were a little disappointed that most of the Harry Potter sites were unavailable. Due to the time of year and the University holiday. We were... More

Our tour guide Tom was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. A couple of highlights were the exposed cobbles on Broad Street which signified where a story of martyrdom took place and the... More

We had a great tour with Peter last Monday. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. We had dreadful weather, but he was able to smile and carry on showing us the buildings both inside and out. He didn't rush us, and encouraged us to ask questions about anything we saw. We would definitely recommend this tour. Ann and Roger Wallworth
