We went to meeting point as documented on booking form but there was no one there and there was no phone number to call La Vacanza Travel. Won’t never book anything with you again.

The walking tour doesn't take much time, yet provides interesting information in a form of a dialogue. Distance is not long and can walk in your pace. Can pause anytime you like. New experience, but def will try it again.

He told me very interesting stories. Thank you very much. I am impressed by the facts and places he showed me in details throughout the history of Oxford.

We walked in heavy rain and found a taxi to return us to our hotel before the tour’s end. My main interest was the Thomas Cranmer sites, so I returned the next day to finish seeing the sites after listening to the dialog the day before. It was good to have this flexibility.

Really difficult web site to understand and not until you book do you get all the information. Have asked for a refund. Took my money immediately however none of the contact information worked. No response to messages. Didn’t end up going as couldn’t work out start place. None of the links worked. Despite lots of messages asking about my experience no contact about refund. DO NOT USE
