Our guide Jamie was a performance in itself....fun, interesting, full of knowledge and stories. We enjoyed the walk so much that we will be back for another guided tour of colleges. Thanks for a really enjoyable Sunday afternoon in sun drenched Oxford...we will be back ...10/10 :-)

Picture the scene. Five friends uniting from across England for the day in Oxford. We walk past these tours we didn't know existed and were enthralled by the 'Free' sign. Ended up joining the tour knowing we could leave at any point if it wasn't for us. It was led by a man who some may say has hair equivalent... More

Tom was energetic and entertaining from the first introduction. He included everyone, was very knowledgeable and could answer any question. Highly recommend his tour, especially The Turf Tavern!

We wanted to have a look around Oxford and opted for a 2 hour guided walking tour as the best way to see and hear about this beautiful city. Our guide, Fred was a mine of information, full of energy with a great sense of humour. The weather was freezing so we were glad of the brisk pace. We were... More

On Tuesday we joined the Footprints Tour and spent the most fantastic 2 hours walking round the beautiful streets of Oxford. Tom, was amazing with all his facts and figures and made the whole experience interesting and highly amusing. We couldn't have had a better guide. To sum it up we had A Whale of a Time. Good luck with... More

Enjoyed seeing some of the wonderful highlights of Oxford. Particularly enjoyed the display room at the library. I would highly recommend. It was a nice stroll and never felt rushed. Lots of fun information and our guide was lovely. We arrived late and they went to so much trouble to track down our tour and get us on. Highly recommend.

This was exactly what it says on the tin - a walking tour of the university. Note that you will not get in to any of the halls this is not included but that's fine you get all the information from your tour guide. The only negative point is that they suggest you book online for a free tour (at... More

I've used TripAdvisor fairly often to look through reviews, but this is actually the first one I've written. Tom was delightful! He not only gave history about the sights, but also told interesting stories related to various historical figures and authors related to each place we visited. As a solo traveler, I really appreciated his affable attitude and his ability... More
