This was a fantastic tour and a great way to discover a bit more about Oxford if you don't have a lot of time in town. I've greatly enjoyed seeing some of the historical buildings and finding out about their history and usage. Our guide, Richard, was very knowledgeable and engaging, enriching the tour with curious info and interesting facts. I would absolutely recommend this!

Loved the Oxford University Alumni tour. Our guide Libby was amazing - crystal clear, funny, knowledgeable and totally charming, So many interesting facts about Oxford and plenty of funny stories. My dad and I really enjoyed ourselves. I have returned home today and probably bored my hubby and kids with my facts about Bishop Cranmer and the college tortoise race and the missing champion Rosa and the following revenge. Would definitely recommend the tour. Thanks Libby.

The tour was great. Our guide Richard told us a lot of interesting facts about the city itself and the university. With so much information, unfortunately you can't remember everything, so a summary sheet (i.e. handout, brochure, or else) of the most important facts would be a nice goodie to go with the paid tour. The group size was fine and the organisation worked well. I can really recommend the tour and our guide.
