    Our guide Katie was very knowledgeable, took time to answer questions, and never hurried us along. She obviously has a passion for Oxford and had some gems of inf

    Very knowledgeable tour guide, the kind of tour with curious facts that I like. It’s 2 hours long. You won’t get into places, but you’ll see them from outside and decide whether you want to return later. I had only one day in Oxford, and I think this tour gave me a true feel of the city. We were able to walk into alleys and wider streets, see some univeristies and understand the spirit of Oxford pretty well. If you only have a day or two in Oxford, take this tour.

    Superb tour of the city, colleges and notable buildings. Very enjoyable despite the cold! With some interesting British history as well as more local flavour. Our guide Kenny was both informative and entertaining. Highly recommend.
