Amazing tour!

Kate (the guide) was amazing! The tour was really nice, we had a wonderful time, did the city tour in about 90 minutes and learned really interesting things about Oxford and its history! We were alone with Kate and got answers to all our questions!

Really good value for the money!

Great tour with Magnus
May 2021 • Friends
We had an excellent 2 hour tour with Magnus and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide! His enthusiasm and knowledge was really engaging and he kept us all informed and entertained throughout. If you really want to get a sense of Oxford and learn a lot about the university then this tour is for you!

Iain was a fantastic guide around the libraries and colleges.
His sense of timing was apparent in not only his comprehensive tour but also humor. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting, and wouldn't mind doing it again myself in the future.
