Overview

Oxford Official Walking Tours are fun and informative. The best way to explore Oxford’s history, University, and what lies hidden behind the College gates is on foot with a professional Green Badge Guide. There is a tour for all interests including the popular City and University Tour (as an introduction) and tours for fans of Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland and Inspector Morse, as well as CS Lewis and Tolkien and Philip Pullman. Your tour will be conducted by a professionally trained guide who holds Green Badge awarded by the national Institute of Tourist Guiding. Your guide will also be a member of the Oxford Guild of Tour Guides, and able to answer any questions you may have and make suggestions of where else to see after your tour.

Very informative walking tour. I've been with my wife and a friend to Oxford and decided to take this tour. Christine was a great guide and she shared really interesting facts about Oxford, the University and the colleges. Highly recommended.

It is not free, but it is sooooo good. Two hours full of stories, anecdotes and info about the history, myths and everyday life at Oxford. Best 15GBP we spent in the whole trip. Kudos to CHILLA, our superguide!
