Edward was our guide today.
He was very informative in a light hearted way - including his audience in his tour.
Lots of good information and a very interesting guide.
Would thoroughly recommend- ask for Edward!

Jul 2021
Great way to get an overview of the Oxford Universities. We joined the walk and found it very informative and interesting. Stuart our guide was excellent - brought the universities to life and also gave very good recommendations for places to visit afterwards (Weston Library was a very good recommendation for a snack lunch and air conditioned environment!). Also opportunity to visit the Balliol Gardens after the walk was appreciated.

Literature tour was perfection!
Jul 2021 • Friends
Simon (Literature tour) was excellent! Extremely knowledgeable. Personalized it to fit our literary interests but also showed us around all of the major more general literary spots. We were blown away by his thorough knowledge. He had a lively and personable demeanor. We wish we had gone on this tour sooner! You never have any idea how entrenched and intertwined everything and everyone is until someone like Simon shows you.

Enjoyable Tour
Jul 2021
I have been to Oxford twice before, but decided to book a guided tour on this visit. We visited about 8 of the colleges from the outside. The distance between them is not great - a think it was just over a mile in total.
We didn't go inside any building, presumably due to COVID, but did go into college grounds / gardens at one the colleges.
The guide was knowledgeable and had a relaxed manner.
I would definitely recommend to friends and family.

The Tour though good was not as Advertised
This tour was advertised as being able to 'Go INSIDE Colleges seen in Harry Potter & Morse, and the Bodleian Iibrary with all ENTRY FEES ncluded.'
We did none of the above! I appreciate this was possibly due to covid restrictions but feel this should have been explained before the tour or a refund of some sort given. Stuart the guide was good and informative the tour was interesting but obviously not what we had expected.

Advertised as fee included entry into buildings, disappointed this didn't happen.

We paid for entry into buildings we visited, but didn't get into any of them. No explanation, sadly.
