We had booked a tour with Stuart and he was very organised and efficent with the arrangements. Maybe it was because it was late afternoon & he was tired, or we were an uninteresting group of middle aged people, but we all thought the tour...More

We were a group of 6 with our guide, Paula, a PhD history student. Paula brought this city to life. Her knowledge, and ability to impart it, made our visit extra special. We went to sites and had points of interest pointed out to us,...More

We were lucky to have Nina as our tour guide who combined ghost stories, history and information on how the university and colleges work. It was great 90 minute tour. At the end when others had left she spent an extra 15-20 minutes talking with...More

This walking tour took us through Baillol College, Bodleian Libraries, Oxford School of Divinity, and by famous pubs and side streets. The guide was informative and good-humored. As an educational professional, I enjoyed hearing about the university systems, famous alumni, and incredible events of the...More

Edward fluently and seamlessly shepherded his flock around and inside a variety of colleges, The Sheldonian, and the Bodleian. It was a very cold day and he did what he could to get us out of the wind and into the weak October sun. We...More

Superb tour by Edward. The poor reviews recently posted were obviously for a different tour, because there was absolutely nothing to complain about with this tour. Edward made the tour informative and enjoyable, showing us the inside of the colleges. Yes, a short tour, but...More

We got into ONE college and NOT the Bodleian as promised on the literature. Shame I had to give it one star, it deserves none. The guide was ill-informed - he needs a very basic history lesson about the reformation instead of announcing to credulous...More
