Inclusions
  • Entry included to either Wadham, Exeter, Balliol or St Johns college- unless all are closed

Exclusions
  • GRADUATION DATES: we cannot always guarantee entry inside any colleges or venues
  • 2024 Graduation dates includes....
  • 20 January, 24 February, March, 11 + 18 May of 2024
  • Colleges are usually all closed at Christmas from about December 21 until about January 2
  • Wheelchair accessible
  • Group size will be kept to max 15 persons but is rarely more than 5 persons
  • Stroller accessible
  • Please arrive 5 minutes early for your tour at our meeting point. If you arrive more than 5 minutes later than the scheduled tour, then you will likely forfeit and lose your booking as it interrupts the guide and other customers, if we are trying to find you after a guide has started and left the meeting point.
  • INFO FOR DRIVERS AND PARKING:
  • Service animals allowed
  • Near public transportation
  • If you are driving, then please allow extra 30-60 minutes over whatever time you think it will take you to get here. Oxford is NOT car friendly and it is congested roads and hard to find parking spaces....unless you park at the sign posted 'park and rides' on edge of town on any major road into the city and hop on their buses into city centre. The park and ride buses leave every 15 or every 30 minutes and take anything from 10 min to 30 min (depending on traffic) to reach city centre. So if you are going to drive, then please assume you should be aiming to park your car about one hour before your tour starts.
  • PUBLIC TRANSPORT:
  • We actually recommend instead using the much faster and reliable train services but again please aim to arrive about an hour or earlier before your tour starts as trains can be delayed and the train and coach station are about 15 minutes walk from our meeting point. There is also the coach service from London called the Oxford Tube which leaves every half hour or more but it can take much longer than its advertised 105 minute journey time. It drops you off either at High street Oxford or Gloucester Green coach station. It's quicker to ask to get off on High street near Carfax tower, then it's a 10 minutes walk to Broad street.
  • Our marginally higher ticket price reflects the special quality of typically having smaller groups than our competitors- average numbers is 2-4 persons only.
  • Transportation is wheelchair accessible
  • Surfaces are wheelchair accessible
  • Infants 5 and under can go on this tour free of charge but this tour is NOT aimed at children
  • During Xmas holiday period or on dates of university graduation dates, we may propose changing slightly the tour start time to 1pm or to 11am, if we think it will make it easier to get into colleges, during restricted opening times. We will advise at time of booking and seek your approval to make any changes to the start time.
  • Please note that as the university colleges are private institutions, we can't always guarantee entry to colleges but it is very rare that we cannot get entry into at least 1 or 2 colleges on the tour. Please take note of any advertised university graduation dates mentioned below, as those dates can have less options of colleges to visit.
  • GRADUATION DATES + XMAS + UNIVERSITY OPEN DAYS:
  • We cannot guarantee entry into colleges on graduation dates or during Xmas vacation period, so please consult 'Exclusions' section for details of any such dates.
  • Most travelers can participate
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 15 travelers
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking, unless booked within 1 day of travel. In this case confirmation will be received as soon as possible, subject to availability

We loved Oxford and Peter was a wonderful tour guide. As a family, traveling with teenagers, he made sure to hit a few spots that everyone would enjoy! He even provides some tasty snacks!

What a great day with Tom our tour guide. He made our day in Oxford come alive with his extensive commentary on Oxford history. We selected the Morse/Endeavor/Lewis tour but got so much more. Can’t recommend Tom and Visig Oxford Tours enough. Well done!

Tom was excellent. Steeped in the culture of Oxford he narrated tidbits of Morse,Lewis and Endeavour with tie ins to Oxford architecture and English history. Turns out he had met a number of the stars on various occasions! A lot to absorb. I thought I knew the series but I did not. His easy way and respect for the institution gave us a little more leeway in peering in to the squares and quads for instance. To see where Cranmer was burned at the stake and to view Wren’s sundial (largest in the world) were highlights. Ending with an Ale (how Morsean!) at the Bear ,oldest pub in Oxford ,was just lovely. Highly recommend this tour.

We came to Oxford and really wanted to do the Morse Walking Tour as we'd heard so many good reports about it! We were not disappointed! Alistair was fun and very informative! His knowledge of Oxford is brilliant. We saw so much and learnt a lot that we couldn't have by ourselves. We highly recommend this Tour and thank Alistair for his brilliant talks.

The tour with Tom was spot on. The small group (five of us) was ideal for seeing all the locations and sites. Tom's knowledge of Oxford went way beyond just Morse, giving us a good insight into the University and College histories. He tailored the tour to suit my mother's slow pace and limited mobility on the day. Can't praise him highly enough.
