Very happy with the tour overall and Peter was great with the kids. They enjoyed the spotting list and Peter's delivery was great, catering for the younger kids. The only drawback was that due to COVID all the colleges were closed to visitors so we couldn't do a complete tour, but still paid full price anyway.

Hi Stoil, glad you enjoyed the tour. I always offer an alternative of either a walk round Christ Church meadow or a visit to one of the colleges (if possible), and vary the length of the tour to each family's needs. Best wishes, Peter
