Qe went with our 12 year old son and 10nyear old daughter and had a blast. Bill is very good at moving from serious to silly, and then the hard part... back again. He captivated the crowd and kept us entertained. Well worth doing.

Bill puts on the flair and tells a great story of ghastly moments in oxford history. Walk is just over an hour so easy to fit in before heading out for the night

A great tour which weaves in the history of Oxford. We went with two eleve year olds who thought it was fantastic. For best atmosphere an Autumn evening would be perfect but we went in August and it was still great.

Thanks Mrs C! I have hardly any signage in Oxford and I'd be nowhere without positive feedback to guide people in my direction. Many thanks!

I've seen bill number of times around Oxford, not only do you understand the city a little bit better, and find out things that you've probably walked past and million times. He has a fantastic show.
