Enjoyable tour with knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide - lots of incredible history. Note, that the tour guide is reliant on tips from the attendees - so please be prepared to pay the guide.
Fantastic tour with wonderfully interesting and informed guide.
A well organised walk . Chloe gave a fascinating talk and had a great knowledge of the history of the colleges. As the group was small she was able to answer all questions in depth. A fantastic introduction to Oxford.
The tour guides showed us the gems that I would not notice a typical oxford tour., and showed his passion in leading a great tour as well. They were polite and welcoming. If you loves learning about the local cultures and a book lover, you must go to this tour.

This tour was the highlight of our first trip to Oxford. Our guide, Tom, is a student at Oxford and shared a wide range of stories, anecdotes and history about the city, the university and its many colleges. We were able to enter several of the colleges to walk through courtyards and see some selected building interiors. We were also able to learn the background of so many of the buildings and historical figures of Oxford. Tom was knowledgeable and entertaining he provided tips about seeing different colleges and reveled in helping us to get a sense of the glorious, although sometimes violent, sometimes silly aspects of the university and the city over the centuries. We covered a lot of ground...sometimes very quickly. We'd pause briefly for photographs to be taken, but there was so much to take in. Like us, you may find that you'll need to allow time to retrace your steps to take more photographs. This is a tour we'd do again in a heartbeat. And will, on our next visit to Oxford!
The tour was extremely enjoyable . Our guide was a student from one of the universities and she was very knowledgeable on the history of Oxford . We saw some amazing buildings and we were kept informed at all times about the history of one. I would highly recommend this trip
My mother and I really enjoyed this walking tour. I'm rubbish at remembering names but I think our guide may have been called Tom. He was very knowledgeable and funny, peppering the talk with amusing jokes and anecdotes. Every site we visited was stunningly beautiful. Our guide was obviously very passionate about the area and the university and he was very helpful he even stayed behind after the official end time to chat to people about what else there was to do in Oxford and to provide insider tips about where else to visit. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Oxford.
Our tour guide Fred was excellent. Knowledge and cantor were beyond reproach. The pace of the tour was very good and too fast or slow. Time was allowed for questions from the participants. We very much enjoyed our experience and will gladly recommend it to others.
Our student led tour of Oxford couldn't have been better. We had a wonderful tour guide named Alicia who was incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. She knew so much about the history of the University and the town itself. Alicia answered all of our questions, even when we asked about people, places, and the architecture that may not have been part of the standard tour. She never rushed us through nor did she imply by her demeanor that she was on a set schedule. She even pointed us to the pub where Tolkien and C.S. Lewis spent much time. As we had spent the earlier part of the day wandering on our own, having a professional guide made the experience so much better. Without Alicia the experience could have been overwhelming and we would have missed a great deal. Thank you, Alicia, and best of luck as you continue your studies.
