We had booked the Student Life tour with the objective of getting a more in-depth insight to the university in a group of no more than six. It turned out that it was just my wife and I and our guide Iain proved to be the perfect companion and guide for the next three hours. This tour fulfilled our objectives and some. We had access to three colleges, often finding ourselves as the only people, let alone tourists, in the building. Iain was a constant source of information about the history, traditions, current practices and future of Oxford University, as well as a great conversationalist, and we left with a much deeper understanding of the place and its people. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough.
