I was an undergrad at Oxford but wanted to show my girlfriend the city I lived in for three years, and Tom's free tour was the perfect introduction for her. Really informative and there was never a dull moment - really liked that we were not inundated with dates but rather got to the more juicy stories of various people... More

Free Walking Tour with Tom was interesting as well as entertaining and funny. Definitely recommend it! University Tour with Beth was very factual and provided insight in a few colleges so I'd say 15 £ were quite worth it. Most stories of the two tours overlapped, which I didn't mind because I'm gonna remember easier and I like hearing stories... More

We joined for the Oxford University & City Tour for £15 per adult and an additional £10 for our 5yo child. A key selling point for us was the Footprints proud statement that entrance fees are included in their price unlike other tours in Oxford.... On the actual day our 'included entrances' was ONLY Balliol College which ordinarily costs a... More

Great tour with an insight into little know facts that you would only get from a tour like this. Good group of people on a cold day wandering around a busy city. Not sure how comfortable this would be in the height of summer. Wonderful historic city on a good walking tour.

The walking tour with Theo was a lot of fun and pretty informative. I had long wanted to take a tour of Oxford and especially the Bodleian Library. Unfortunately, I didn't realize that this tour wouldn't allow entrance to any building. As it was late November and I was on the 2:00 tour, there was no time to go back... More

The free walking tour with Tom as the guide is worth it! As a teacher, I can say that he definitely kept his learners engaged and entertained as we walked. The tour truly flew by and I enjoyed every last second of it 😁🇬🇧

Excellent, informative tour by Beth - I would highly recommend this tour - £15 was very good value for 2 hours and we discovered some interesting facts and saw other places to visit during our time in Oxford, such as the lovely Turf Tavern. A must for Harry Potter fans!!! My daughter is studying at Oxford Brookes and also really... More
