Really enjoyed the ghost walk. The guide was prompt and took us through quiet streets to the outside of university buildings. She told us some interesting ‘ghostly tales’ which she delivered in an engaging manner. We were absorbed in her retelling. It was well done.

Laura was an excellent tour guide. She took us around and explained very well and also went into the history of the place always linking it up with HP. The quiz throughout the tour was also a fun part.

She did a wonderful job telling us ghost stories on our walk about Oxford. And bonus we found some new pubs to try.

So lovely for a group family outing. Good to know a bit of history in a lovely simple way.

Great tour! Interesting Harry Potter stories and personal stories, very nice tour guide
