Wonderful day with our guide - Gill. I took my son to London for his Senior year spring break. He found this personal chauffeured tour thru TripAdvisor which had excellent reviews. The reviews were "spot on". It was a cool raining day but, we had an amazing time. Gill was very friendly and we felt safe the entire trip. I would highly recommend this day trip to any Harry Potter fan.

Last month, my boyfriend and I (both in our early 20s) took a week’s vacation to London from the US, and we are so glad we decided to book up one of our days with the Celebrity Planet Harry Potter Taxi Tour to London, Oxford, and Lacock. It was probably our favorite day of our whole visit! Will, our extremely knowledgeable guide, and Jill, a guide-in-training, were both so personable and helpful! We truly enjoyed our time with them. As huge Harry Potter fans, my boyfriend and I loved being able to see and learn about the locations that were used in the films or served as inspiration for the series. They even had movie clips on hand to show, helping the Potter experience come alive! A fan’s dream! Plus so many fun photo opportunities at each stop!
HP fan perspective aside, though, we really just loved being able to see places that were beautiful and historical on their own right, in London and out. Oxford was absolutely lovely, both when visiting the colleges and when lunching at a popular pedestrian area, and the tiny village and history-riddled Abbey of Lacock were beyond charming. Getting out of the city and into the English towns and countryside added a wonderful dimension! Although the tour was a little pricey and took nearly all day, it was worth every penny and minute. We would absolutely recommend this more personal tour to anyone and everyone who enjoys Harry Potter and who wants a fuller experience of sight-seeing, as well!

William did a wonderful job as our tour guide and really helped make the places we visit come to life in regards to the Harry Potter movies. He was very knowledgable and enthusiastic which helped make it all the more enjoyable. The places we visited were magnificent. I was very glad to see more of Britain than what is right in London. The architecture really is a must see experience, I hadn't ever seen anything like it before.

What a fabulous way for any true fan to get to see many of the sites featured in the Harry Potter film series. We had a wonderful guide, William Ashbey, who is a fan himself which makes it all the more enjoyable. My mate and I loved the fact that he brought along clips of the film sites on his ipad which was so key to completing the experience. We'd spent some time in London already, an knew it was a great city, but seeing Oxford and Lacock was incredible. It was really cool as tourists to see a big city, a college town, and a little town with an awesome cozy feel to it.
Definitely recommend this tour!

Two friends and I had a wonderful time being driven around to see so many filming location for the Harry Potter movies. Our lovely tour guide, George, was knowledgeable and entertaining as he showed us around Lacock, Oxford and London showing us places that I would never otherwise know about or recognise. I strongly recommend this tour, its a great way to spend a full day when visiting London. Now I just have to re-watch all the movies to pick out all the familiar locations!

What a very nice and unforgettable day with a professional guide called " James " , who also new where to have a perfect lunch in Oxford (for a very reasonable price).
We've started the day in London and our driver took us to Oxford and Lacock. You'll need a whole day from 9.00 AM till 07.30 PM but it is great!!! You don't have to hurry (you're on holiday) and the locations are so nice that you're like Harry himself! Thanks!

For my birthday, we made the "Harry Potter Tour, London, Oxford and Lacock." Our guide, James, picked us up at the hotel. First we visit London. At each location, we showed an excerpt from the film on his iPhone and then we saw the place! Rather convenient for the first films! We were able to take a max of photos, we even saw other places of films like Bridget Jones's house, the hotel of James Bond, etc.. In my Oxford is a must. Oxford = Hogward. For my boyfriend who was less a fan of Harry, he found his account with the architecture of Oxford. The campus is worth a look. When you know that JK Rowling has already been underway in this magical place, you feel closer than ever to the author. Finally the village of Lacock is a little gem of England. British series and several movies have been shot. We even had tea with the mother of James:) I must conclude by saying that our guide spoke enough French that put us in confidence. We preferred still try in English, but it was a nice touch to speak our language.
