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.

The story was told to you by a student with passion, immersing ourselves fully in history. We really liked it and we really enjoyed the tour. Highly recommended, with the competition we had some problems on the other hand with this tour everything went very well. Very polite and informing us of the changes.

although it was cold and raining, Trevor our guide gave us a very warm welcome. we have done many tours but Trevor was by far the best guide ever. even through the rain he managed to interest us and keep us listening to his stories - he is very knowledgeable about Oxford and i would thoroughly recommend this tour
