My friend and I were browsing along Broad street when we happened to see this walking tour come along. We hadn't pre-booked or anything and just sort of tagged along onto the group and the tour guide was okay with that. It was a great decision for our short 2 hr visit in Oxford. The tour was amazing, we learned... More

I have tried this kind of tours also in other cities and find they are a very good way to visit a city. The cost is minimal (2 pounds + optional tip) and the tour lasts a couple of hours. It is worth to do it

Excellent tour, specially as it was a free one! Equivalent to as if I had paid for it :) Definitely recommend and please do understand that the tour guides are all volunteers who do a damn good job of it.

Been to Oxford on countless occasions but this my first organised tour. Luke was an extremely good guide who knew so much about the places we visited and was able to deliver facts and anecdotes perfectly. Worth every tip he got!

Our guide was passionate about what he was talking about and a great story teller. All the important highlights covered within 2 hours. No need to book really - we would have gladly give more than the booking fees but having paid the booking fees on line and walking with all others who did not have to pay made you... More

Theo our guide was brilliant - very knowledgeable and funny. A great insight into the city! Don't bother booking in advance! You don't need to, just turn up on the day!

Interesting two hour walking tour that took in a lot of sites around Oxford city centre. Our guide Luke was great at recounting lots of information about the various sites including the history, filming locations and funny anecdotes. It's a free tour but well worth giving a tip if you can.

We found the Footprints tour group on TripAdvisor then booked the City & University tour, which was easy to do online and reasonably priced. We were a family of 5 including an 8 year old, 13 year old, 16 year old and parents. We all loved this tour - the walking was pleasant, the colleges and university buildings that we... More

Would highly recommend if ever in Oxford. Tours are at 11.00am and 2pm at the bottom of Broad Street in Oxford City Centre. Found the tour by accident on the first... More
