An excellent 2hr tour around the Colleges and other historic buildings. Our guide was very good and she had lots of interesting stories - I particularly liked the one about the stolen tortoise!

Jack was a great guide and gave our small group all sorts of interesting colo(u)r on what's happened and happening in Oxford. A student of history, he told great stories and was on point in the details. Highly recommend this tour.
