Super organized from the meeting point to the tickets. The tour guide made everything interesting, responded individually to each participant and gave many helpful tips for free time.

Well organized, nice bus, nice guides. Oxford is a great addition to the HP Tour, as a few scenes were filmed there and JK Rowling also incorporated impressions from Oxford into HP.
