Alasdair's walking tour was very informative and interesting and well worth the cost. The tour went for about 1hr 5mins and Alasdair was very entertaining throughout. His stories bought Oxford alive for us.

We took over 100 students to Oxford in October and had a wonderful tour through Oxford lead by Alasdair who was very accommodating. The group thoroughly enjoyed the tour and we were very pleased with the excellent price. It wasn't too long and boring and...More
