We did an Oxford University tour with Gabrielle and it was awesome! He was super friendly and made the tour interesting for our teens. We saw lots of marvellous sites and even managed to get into the Divinity School with Gabrielle. This was a highlight. Gabrielle explained about how the university system worked, how to get differences between the colleges. He explained the university's history and showed us some famous sites. He shared some funny stories about the various colleges too. Very entertaining for everyone.

Very great tour. It is a great way to learn more about the city, its history and its beautiful buildings. Our guide James was super friendly and knowledgeable. Really enjoyed it and will recommend it and join some of the other tour they offer next time I come to Oxford.
