Oxford We begin our day travelling across the Chiltern Hills to Oxford, the 'City of Dreaming Spires,' whose hushed courtyards have inspired generations of scholars including Bill Clinton and writers, Lewis Carroll who wrote 'Alice in Wonderland', C.S.

On the walking tour you'll visit Christ Church college, where Harry Potter scenes were filmed, see the Bodleian Library and the picture-perfect college courtyards for which Oxford is justifiably famous.

It was amazing, kinda wish it was more private- we assumed booking for 3 meant we wouldn't have to share but we still did with other groups It was still super fun, we're not really the type to usually opt-in for guided tours, but this one is a must for everyone. Our tour guide, Leaf was funny, he was interactive and wasn't the boring guided tour, instead made it quite fun sharing some exciting facts, that I surpringly still remember.

The tour was amazing! I went with my parents and we had a great time. Our guide was super cute and funny, he told us a lot of interesting stories behind the Cambridge University which made the tour even more awesome. Would recommend 100% and will definitely do the punting tour again!

Young Alex was our Punt and he was amazing. Definitely recommended this to my friends & family& anyone reading this.

Staff looked after the wheelchair for us to go around. Guide was friendly.

Perfectly timed. The guide was quite knowledgeable and courteous
