There are very good tour guides in Oxford. David is not one of them - he is absolutely excellent. What makes David excellent is that he doesn't just have a profound knowledge about the town and university, but that he is truly passionate about it. I was a student at Oxford University and the tour with David has given me... More

Our family took the train to Oxford from London (about 1 hour on the fast train), and met guide David Gunnell in the center of town. Prior to our visit, we had corresponded with Oxford City Walk in detail via email. David greeted us warmly and proceeded to take us on a four hour tour that was filled with historic... More

We were so fortunate to have David, the owner, give us a tour of Oxford. His knowledge and passion for sharing it shine through. He is also very personable and entertaining so it is all a joy. Even our teen boys were mesmerized and said that day was a highlight of our two weeks in England. I will also add... More

My husband and I felt so lucky to have David G. as our guide for the Sheldonian Theatre and Snapshot of Oxford tour---he made the events during the talk about Oxford's history come alive for us. If you're booking a tour through this private tour company, be sure to ask for him.

Having stayed in Oxford for nearly one year in 1995/1996 for studies I thought having a individual guided tour will only brush up old memories. With this assumption I was completely wrong. On the morning of the 28th of May 2014 I met with my tour guide David in Oxford for a four hour tour. During this tour David really... More

This was a very fun and informative tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable about building and it's history both long past and relatively current. Plenty of time for photographs and never a full moment. I'd recommend to all my friends.

Thanks for great tours on Saturday. Our two groups really enjoyed themselves and were very complementary of the service you provided. We hope to offer another tour of Oxford and plan to use your services again!

We both found this tour extremely informative. My husband had been a student at the Queen's College, Oxford over 50 years ago, and so our recent tour was a trip down memory lane. David, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt a great deal about Oxford and the Sheldonian that we never knew before.

I found Oxford City Walk on TripAdvisor and was delighted at the possibility of a bespoke tour in Oxford as a part of mine & my sister's 2wk trip to England. I booked my date (July 30th) quite a few months in advance, and over those months went back and forth with the amazingly patient Laura, who tailored a whole... More

David greeted us as planned for our Oxford City tour and we were fortunate it was "Open Day" for Oxford University. This allowed us to visit several colleges of Oxford since normally tours are not possible. David is an extremely knowledgeable guide, both about the city of Oxford and historical points of interest. We all thoroughly enjoyed our tour and... More
