I recently had the pleasure of taking the Oxford University walking tour with Kiara, and it was a truly wonderful experience. Kiara was an excellent guide, who was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing her love for the city and its history. The tour took us through some of the most iconic landmarks of Oxford, including the Bodleian Library, the Radcliffe Camera, and the Sheldonian Theatre. Kiara provided detailed information about each location, sharing fascinating stories and anecdotes that really brought the history to life. I highly recommend the Oxford University walking tour with Kiara to anyone interested in learning more about this beautiful city and its rich history.

The tour was good, Short and precise. Richard answered all questions promptly and patiently. He did take us around to important sites and mentioned about them. its a good tour for the time spent, a bit expensive though, as we felt , more could have been covered

Terrific! Hannah was spectacular, so knowledgeable, witty, and enthusiastic. Learned and saw so much. The highest compliment I can give is to say that though we have never been people who signed up for tours, preferring to explore on our own, this tour - and Hannah - has completely changed our perspective. I think we’ll be signing up for many more walking tours in our travel future!
