What to Expect
After meeting your private guide in central Oxford, explain any particular interests you may have.

Your guide will discuss your options and arrange the best itinerary for the tour time and day of the week. Then stroll Oxford’s streets as your guide illuminates the city, answering any questions you have. You might choose to visit the Bodleian Library, first opened in 1602, Sir Christopher Wren’s Sheldonian Theatre, or the Hertford Bridge, known as the “Bridge of Sighs.” Once your tour ends, your guide will bid you farewell in the city center.

We had an absolutely amazing walking tour with Marianne. Her knowledge of Oxford is quite remarkable. We were really impressed with the way she told us a story rather than just didactically feeding us the information. We would thoroughly recommend these tours.

Georgie met us at the train station on a rainy Tuesday and guided us through the city and the campus. She was fantastic and sensitive to the unique needs of our group of 5. We left Oxford with a deeper understanding of how the college works and a few fun stories to share.
