While visiting Oxford on a tight schedule, it can be hard to decide which wonderful historic buildings to explore. Discover the Oxford you want to see, whether it’s the world of Harry Potter or the “city of dreaming spires,” on a walking tour that can be tailor-made to your interests. Enjoy plenty of time to ask your private guide questions, and choose from a morning or afternoon departure time.

What to Expect
After meeting your private guide in central Oxford, explain any particular interests you may have. Possible tour focuses include the worlds of Harry Potter or Lewis Carroll, or you can learn all about the history of Oxford. Your guide will discuss your options and arrange the best itinerary for the tour time and day of the week.

Then stroll Oxford’s streets as your guide illuminates the city, answering any questions you have. You might choose to visit the Bodleian Library, first opened in 1602, Sir Christopher Wren’s Sheldonian Theatre, or the Hertford Bridge, known as the “Bridge of Sighs.” Once your tour ends, your guide will bid you farewell in the city center.

Casual, personal walking tour

Great to have the element of personal experience from Emma as a student. Saw a range of colleges and a few key details of historical significance.

We did the 4-hour private tour and it was worth every penny. Our guide, Peter, is a recent Oxford graduate and was also raised in Oxford. He knew the city and the university inside out and we had 4 hours packed with sights, information and...More

Footprints Tours - Look no further, they are the best!

First review I have ever written so you truly know Footprints Tours must be good. And they are. Adam Towers was wonderfully helpful from start to finish and we thoroughly enjoyed his British humour and graciousness. Our student guide, Aoife, brought everything along the walk...More

They were flexible about tour durations so since it is a private tour, I would recommend asking them if you could start at 4pm.
