This was an excellent walking tour given by a postgraduate who had a clear love for the city and for the stories she was telling. We stopped at just the right number of spots and as well as learning about buildings etc there were loads of great tales about Oxford people and rituals. We (parents and tween kids) loved it.

We had a great time learning about life at Oxford Uni and interesting stories on the famous people who graduated from the school from our guide, Patrick. Patrick was witty and really knowledgeable. Although The Divinity School was closed on our walking tour day, we were able to go into Magdalen College which was really beautiful with its beautiful flowers, herds of deer and enormous grounds. We had so much fun during the tour! Highly recommend anyone who’s visiting Oxford for the first time to join this tour!

There is a lot packed into this two hour tour. My guide, Alison, had a wealth of information and some fun stories about Oxford University. It’s a great way to get an overview of Collegiate University set up and life. A potted history of Oxford was given at the start of the tour.
