Enjoyed a 2 hour tour with this company, it's a lovely introduction to Oxford. Each slice of beautiful architecture is served with a historical fact, humorous at times. Friendly tour guides with a range of knowledge.

This walking tour was just great. The guide was tall dark and handsome but also well spoken, knowledgeable and funny. I learned so much about the history of the Oxford University colleges and many stories about the rivalries and camaraderie of students in days some by. I would recommend this tour and I would do it again.

Thoroughly enjoyed free walking trip with our knowledgeable and highly entertaining town/gown guide Tom. He swirled us around this ancient site of learning like an enthusiastic professor showing us the many colleges, Bodleian library and up the spiral staircase of St Mary's college. We were shown the sites of some of the historic events throughout the centuries. We also enjoyed... More

Tim was a brilliant and highly enthusiastic guide who kept us interested throughout; with two teenagers that is quite a feat.

We loved our two hour Harry Potter walking tour of Oxford. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was great to be able to have access to a number of the colleges and see the superb buildings and grounds. Highly enjoyable.

When booking a tour in Oxford, I thought I would pay more than a regular free walking tour, for a more impactful experience. I do not feel like paying for a tour in Oxford was worth it compared to a free walking tour. Although the group size was smaller, I feel like this was the only large difference. We only... More

Really interesting 2 hour tour covering the main sights in Oxford. If you want to see inside some of the main attractions, make sure you allow an few extra hours afterwards (most of these places require an additional fee to enter so the tour guides stop outside instead). Our tour guide, Tom, was funny and interesting to listen to. He... More

The tour was interesting and informative. It passes next to many colleges but you don't enter any. I found it good because I got to see a lot of the town. Jacob was a great guide.

Oxford Colleges Tour done by Oxfordians. Doesn't get any better than that. Our guide Beth, currently an Oxfordian, gave us an insight into 1000 years of history, in depth. You transcend in a different era altogether with the visit to Trinity, New College (New College is around 700 year old :P), Bodleian Library and the city in itself. It's a... More
