    Very nice tour! We definitely recommend! Small group, very professional, approachable, knowledgeable and funny guide. We learned a lot about the city, the university and academic traditions. Interesting from all points of view! We stoped in the most iconic city sites, inclusive some that appear/ inspired movies, like Narnia and Harry Potter.

    Our Guide, Trevor, gave us a fantastic tour. He made the whole tour fun, informative and very interesting due to his friendly manner and great sense of humour. Having very recently been a student at the University he made the whole place come alive. Despite the inevitable current restrictions re the colleges all being closed to visitors, we didn’t feel we had missed out in any way.

    John ( from Germany) was an excellent guide. He was so knowledgable, keep us interested with interesting facts and very nicely tied it Bbc all together from start to finish. This was my first visit to Oxford and taking the guided tour was was worth the two hours and the money. What a fabulous way to have the history of Oxford mapped onto our guided walk.
