Visit the medieval Divinity School — the University’s oldest classroom (and the location of scenes in 3 Harry Potter movies!) Get to know the City's own unique history and often stormy relationships with the University. All our internationally acclaimed guides are Oxford graduates and/or published Oxford authors, known (and celebrated!) for their delight in sharing their expertise, enthusiasm and love of storytelling.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We are two couples in our 60s who wanted a proper historical tour of Oxford (without Harry Potter stuff!) Chris was a mine of information. He explained the origins of Oxford and why it became the leading centre of teaching. We adored our trip around the Bodleian, Trinity and New College - without a guide we would never have found all the treasures. We would all recommend Chris highly!

Just returned from UK and Tour of Oxford was one of the highlights of our trip. Tour guide was so very knowledgeable and having lived in Oxford as part of the University could give some great insight into the school. He wanted to know what we were interested in and tailored the tour accordingly. He was on no time schedule and really gave us a wonderful tour of so much of the university. Highly recommend this tour to get a feeling of what Oxford is all about.

Chris was an amazing tour guide. His knowledge of history and the university was incredible, and his personality and passion shine through in every tour he gives.

My wife and I only had a few hours in Oxford, and we didn’t realize we were traveling there right in the middle of hundreds of graduation ceremonies and parties. Even though it was a very busy day and many locations were closed, it didn’t phase Chris. He still gave us a wonderful tour and found additional stops where we could go inside and look around, allowing us to make the most of our time.

While we spent 2 hours with him, I think we could have spent days chatting about British history and seeing the sites. He gave us great recommendations for dining and shopping while we were in town as well. This is a 5 star tour company, and Chris was a 5 star guide!

So pleased you enjoyed yourselves so much and many many thanks for your truly wonderful review which is very much appreciated. It was fun though amid the hustle and bustle of graduation to explore Oxford together and find places far from the madding crowd. Needless to say you were perfect company and made my afternoon. And thanks too for the positive feedback on my dining and shopping recommendations. And, yes, I could have gladly spent days chatting British history with you. Next time!

Thank you so much for your 5 star review and to hear that your guide was good company and provided an enjoyable and worthwhile tour: he too much enjoyed his time with you. Thanks as well for your appreciation that a private, exclusive tour is by far the best way to explore this fascinating City and University, and thus why we only offer such tours.

Chris took my husband and I on a walk around some of the very interesting University spots in Oxford. His knowledge was wide and varied and obviously he had personal experience of being a student which made the tour so interesting. Lots of stories and details you would miss out on if you simply walked about yourselves. We had some laughs along the way and saw inside buildings we never would have entered otherwise. Definitely worth doing and highly recommended

Chris Peters is a gem full of knowledge. He kept my teen sons entertained for hours with his wealth of historical data, personal experiences, entertaining stories and anecdotal quips. Chris brought Oxford to life for our family.... a highlight of England for us! If you are going to Oxford, hire this treasure of a guide to answer all your questions and highlight all this area has to offer.

This is a very good tour and we got to see really cool things in Oxford that we would not have experienced on our own. Our tour guide was very fun and he even took the time to look up additional things that we were interested in seeing.

Our guide Chris contacted us ahead of the tour to check on what our interests are to make sure the tour was tailored specifically for us.
The children were delighted to see places where some Harry Potter scenes were filmed.
Without our guide Chris, there was no way we would have seen the parts of the colleges that we did.
Our guide was highly knowledgeable in local history and able to answer any questions we asked. Highly recommend. Thank you again Chris.
