    Our guide, Karen, and our driver Nono (not sure of the spelling of his name, I'm sorry!) did a fantastic job. They were so accommodating and compassionate and the trip was really fun. We did Oxford, Bampton (village), and Highclere Castle. Karen was so witty and charming and genuinely seemed to love checking in with us and the other passengers. Nono was also very witty and fun. All in all, a great trip that I would heartily recommend.

    This guided tour made the whole process very easy, starting with the online booking, then meeting Grace at the train station, who took us via train and bus to the Wizarding World and had lots of info to share, and our private, personalized tour with Kevin M., who gave us a the behind the scenes tour of the movie magic. Observing the other visitors, we felt really fortunate to have the guidance and insight a professional guide provided. Kevin M. had a deep knowledge of the movies and production details, and found details of interest for our tween boy and teen girl. The City Wonders tour guide was able to enter the sets to point details out to us, and other visitors would try to listen in to the presentations.

    Note that once you arrive at the Wizarding World, the tour takes about 3 hours, with a cafe break in the middle. Because this is focused on the making of the movies, it is still fresh and different if you have been to the Universal HP experiences. The gift shop is also tremendous.

    Our Tour for Muggles was an amazing experience! Our guide Alex Scamander lead us to locations where we'd never have been on our own and gave us a lot of fun facts about the Harry Potter films.
    We especially enjoyed Knockturn Alley and the Leaky Cauldron. Definitively a must-do in London! Thank you Alex ☺️

    Eva was an absolutely great guide.
    Very funny and entertaining and due to the smaller group, inquired about origin and names and thus made the tour a bit more personal.
    She did a great job of entertaining us on the ride.
    Bampton, was immediately recognizable if you are a Downton fan, absolutely recommended is the small store here (in the film, Hospital) here locals offer a small merchandise for small money.
    Unfortunately we didn't have that much time there and could only explore this for 20 minutes.
    Downton Abbey was absolutely breathtakingly beautiful, just as you always imagined and absolutely recommended!

    We would still recommend doing the tour on your own as there is no entrance fee at Bampton and Downton Abbey costs £21 and there is no guided tour inside.
    So considering we paid £300 for two people. Absolutely overpriced!
    We have done so many tours. There would be £80 of which £21 entrance fee is more than appropriate.

    Tony, our tour guide, was fantastic. He knew all the details about Cogges Manor Farm, Bampton, and Highclere and because of that the tour seemed very personalized. He had a great sense of humor. The small group was the way to go.

    We went on this tour on a Saturday, so we went to Warner studios first and then we went to Oxford in the afternoon.
    It was a medium size group, I think we were around 15 people. A tour like this one is good if you have a tight schedule because you can see both locations in one day, but if I had the chance I'd rather go by myself so I can spend more time in Warner studios.
    Once we got there, the guide gave us the ticket but still we had to join a long cue to get in (it is quick, but still needs time). The visit to Warner studios is free-range, the guide doesn't get in. Still you need a minimum of 3.5 hours. We stayed in the shop (amazing shop) for almost one hour, so we had to rush a little bit for the visit (if you take the audio-guides and you stop at every point, you will not have time for eating or shopping then). The studio visit was great! It is REALLY WORTH IT. There is a cafeteria where we could have a drink and something to eat but after the cafeteria you still have quite a long way to go before it ends.
    Then we had around one more hour drive to Oxford. Once in Oxford, we had a walking tour where the guide explained some history and some anecdotes, but the filming locations of Harry Potter are indoors, so you can only go in during your free time. We had like 2.5 hours free in Oxford, which was enough for us because we did not go inside any of the buildings. However, Oxford is a beautiful town and it is worth a visit. The driving was safe and both the drived and the guide were very kind. We left London at 9am and arrived back at around 20pm. It is a long day.

    I really resented not being able to book tickets to the Harry Potter/ Warner Bros Studios directly through them and instead being forced to book these more expensive tickets through Golden Tours. That is on Warner Bros, though. They deliberately only sell a small portion of tickets, which sell out immediately, and pass most of their tickets off to tour companies, doubling the cost to consumers. Shame on Warner Bros for this. Customers really don't have a choice.

    After reading reviews here, I was extremely worried about booking through Golden Tours. We spent approximately a zillion pounds for our 6 family members to visit the studios, and I really did not want to deal with transportation issues. Fortunately, all went smoothly, and it will for you too, if you read the details ahead of time, get where you are supposed to be early, and plan your day appropriately. Tips:

    1- This is an ALL DAY excursion. I thought this was a reasonably quick in/out situation. No. It's 90 min each way to/from the studios, and the space at the studios is vast. We were in there for 4 hours enjoying the exhibits, and that was without a ton of time in the gift shop. We left our hotel in London at 9:30am and were not back until 6:30pm. Plan to be gone all day.

    2- Google map the pick-up location and be there early. For the Bulleid Way pick-up, you will leave Victoria Station and walk a couple blocks to the pick-up spot. The bus leaves on time, and it will leave without you if you are late.

    3- Yes, the TVs are fairly terrible on board. The sound goes in/out. My kids did not care whatsoever. They would watch Harry Potter on mute all day. Adults, plan to look out the window or spend time on your phone.

    4- I was surprised at the number of families with little kids (like way too little to have read/watched Harry Potter). Invariably, the little ones were uninterested and cranky, thus leading to cranky parents and tears all around. I would say that the studios are great for ages 7+, and if your kids are younger than that, give it a miss.

    5- For kids of the appropriate age and all the Harry Potter adults (guilty!), the experience is magical. The tour is so much better than I was expecting. I loved it. I could not believe all there was to see and do.

    6- The food situation is not great, however. There is only one dining area, about 2/3 of the way through the tour. My elderly parents were very hungry and thirsty by the time we arrived there, and then we had to wait in a 30 min line to order. Bring water and snacks to tide you over. The food was pretty uninspired and the serving staff were 100% over it all. I don't know what they pay those poor food workers, but it's not enough.

    7- If you somehow race through the tour and are done before your assigned return bus time, you can wait in the standby line for an earlier bus. It just depends on how full your bus is as to whether you can get on. Our bus, on a Saturday, had some extra spaces, but you never know. We were honestly more worried about finishing everything in time to make our assigned bus-- there was so much to see and do in the time we had.

    8- There is a lot of upselling inside the studios, in the form of photos. Do you want photos/video of your kid riding a broom with a green-screened Hogwarts in the background? Yes, you definitely do. That'll be 50 pounds. Bring your credit card.

    My family loved this whole experience, which was good because we spent an absurd amount of money doing it. Come prepared and you'll have a great time, too!

    Our tour was great. Richard helped us plan it and Steve, our driver, was very helpful and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better tour experience.

    Simone on the Golden Tours Hop on Hop off Bus was brilliant. He went out of his way to get us back to our hotel and while we were on the bus with him he organized our Harry Potter Tour. Everything was so easy. The bus trip there was prompt and organized. They did drop the ball forgetting to enclose our tickets with our return bus voucher. Lost half an hour of our time at Warner Studios sorting it out , but help wasn’t far away and we got inside and we made it in time for our tour. Would recommend the tour even for the non Harry fans, the technical details of the whole movie making process was fascinating.
    A truly magical adventure

    I attended this with my daughter who had bought the experience for my Christmas present. We met our host Peter outside the Civil Service and three other participants. After a fortifying brunch we explored parts of Whitehall associated with Ian Fleming, then were chauffeured to Camden where we had great fun with airsoft pistols and rifles. Then we were driven back to explore Mayfair and St James, including Fleming's birth place and Floris perfumery. We finished off the day with cocktails at St Ermin's Hotel, frequented by Fleming and Churchill during the war, and where SOE was set up.

    Peter was very knowledgeable about Fleming and Bond and also other London matters. The other three participants were great company and helped to create an excellent day.

    I was attending the trip Downton Abbey and Village Small Group Tour on Thursday, July 28 2022.
    I did enjoy the trip very much. The bus was comfortable and the driver drives nice.
    I must say that the guide on the tour did a very good job. He did speak very clearly so even though I’m hearing impaired I had no trouble hearing what he said.
    He told us he grew up not far from Bampton, the village from Downton Abbey, so he knew the area.
    First we drove to Bampton and he showed us the church and other buildings used in Downton Abbey.
    Then we drove to Highclere Castle. We had 3 hours to spend at the castle and that was enough.
    We could eat some lunch there and take the trip trough the castle to see the rooms famous from the series.
    Then we had good time to walk around in the park around the castle, and that was very nice.
    I will highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves Downton Abbey!
