Our guide Sabrina was excellent! She was extremely knowledgeable, engaging, personable and she was more than happy to answer all our questions and accommodate our needs. Overall , I think it’s a great idea to have current students or alumni do these tours as they have some interesting insights and stories about the university.

What a brilliant time we had with our guide Mary. Very clear informative facts about Oxford which were wonderfully dramatized bringing everything to life. No worries about asking questions our guide was genuinely passionate about her subject, having been borne in Oxford our guide was a true native, you could feel the love for the city. A must for Harry Potter fans as well as Narnia enthusiasts. It's a great way to get your bearings and is good for all age groups. The time just flew bye and it was well worth the money.

It had been a life long wish to see the buildings of Oxford University and the tour enabled us to do just that. Without the tour, we wouldn't have gained such an insight into the history of the university buildings along with delightful snippets of student life both past and present.
