The tour guide, Peter, was excellent. He is a native of Oxford and very knowledgeable.

This was a super tour for us. This tour costs more than the other pub tours on offer but it was worth it. The tour is configured for no more than six people unlike other pub tours and we were lucky as for us it turned out to be a private tour. Also, we were pleasantly surprised, although the description does not indicate this, our guide picked up the drinks tab so I got to taste test three different ciders as my wife tried three different ales.

Because it was graduation night, the pubs often attended by students were very busy -- so the guide chose a couple of 'town-locals'. When we encountered too much of a crowd at the third pub, our guide revised things and we went to the Oxford Union club -- since our guide is a masters student at Oxford. That got us into an entirely different environment and we quietly sipped our drinks the cider at the club is NOT as nice as the ciders at pubs though -- it isn't their forte, and chatted for quite a while about Oxford, our travels, his travels and things in general.

A very genial evening indeed.

At the end, our guide walked us back to our AirBNB apartment which was rather a nice touch.
