If possible, I would give David a five star plus rating. I had to cancel the first tour reservation I made with David because of a death in my family, and his response was most compassionate. When my husband and I rescheduled our trip to England, rescheduling a tour with David was a must. As many reviewers have shared,David is... More

I hired Oxford City Walk to give my boyfriend, a massive Tolkien fan, a Tolkien-focused tour of Oxford. What we got was a magical two hours, and memories that will last a lifetime. Our tour guide was prompt, knowledgeable, warm, and funny. Easily one of of the very best parts of our trip.

Having visited Oxford several times over the last few years we wanted to understand more of the history and visit some of the ancient colleges. We booked online for a 1.5 hour guided tour for a Tuesday afternoon in January. There was no need to book in advance as there were only 4 people on this tour. Jeff was waiting... More

We arranged a stop in Oxford having spent a couple of days in the Wye Valley to break up our journey home. On previous visits to other cities we have enjoyed guided walks & this one certainly did not disappoint. Our guide David gave us useful information on parking prior to our arrival. We asked for a general tour &... More

We first met David when we did his Stratford-upon-Avon walking tour. After that adventure we took the opportunity to do a walking tour of Oxford with him. We found David to be a most conjenial host whose subject knowledge was impressive. His ability to tailor the experience to his clients' needs is peerless. Being a a bit of a history... More

I enjoyed my tour so much that I wanted my friends to come with me on another. We combined it with some Christmas shopping and the guide added some festive elements, even singing the oldest carol in print! My friends really enjoyed it too, despite the cold, it was thoroughly entertaining.

I attended a tour of the Sheldonian theatre which was simply excellent. Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and funny. I would recommend the tours to people of all ages, as well as those who live in Oxford. I've lived here for nearly 10 years and barely knew any of the guides stories!

I have lived in Oxford for ten years and have learned a lot about its history during this time. I love my adopted home town and enjoy showing visitors around. However, I recently had a very special visit from some dear friends and their 9 and 11-year old daughters. The girls are serious Harry Potter fans and I wanted to... More

I found this tour through the internet, and am I glad I did. My son and I had an afternoon free in Oxford, and the literary tour we wanted was a different day. I splurged on this tour, and was so glad I did. David was an excellent, generous guide, with lots of information on our interests (Tolkien, CS Lewis,... More
