Very thorough tour and wonderful fun hearing about the University and town from a students perspective. Our guide (Gwendy) was an enthusiastic story teller. Very impressive.
Fun little excursion into Oxford’s past

This was a great tour! I love that they split the tour up into small groups-they were the only company that did that (8 people per group or so). Our guide, Kian, was knowledgeable and witty, and I loved learning about Oxford (as well as a little bit about the university system, which is pretty different from the states!). We were able to go inside the Divinity School, walk the grounds of Balliol, and throughout, learn a little of the city’s and it’s university’s interesting history. It was a lot to absorb in only two hours, but the pace was great. Highly recommend!

Great tour of the different colleges in Oxford. Ollie was our tour guide and he was funny and knowledgeable. The tour was just right and gave us ample time to tour around the town.

Jessica was knowledgeable and passionate about the University's history. Her ending speech of the execution of Thomas Cranmer by Queen Mary was awe-inspiring and worth all the applauses.
Sign up for a couple different tours
Debbie_W, May 2022
This was a nice tour with an energized and informative guide, a doctorate student from the university. I would definitely do it again. The one thing I would share is that it didn’t cover enough ground. In two hours I felt like we only saw three buildings. I expected to see more of the university.
