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

I accompanied a small part of German university lecturers on an afternoon's tour of the medieval heart of Oxford and St John's college and library. Our guide, David, was hugely engaging and extremely knowledgeable and informative. He was also a charming companion for the duration of the tour and very deft at judging just the right mix of information, anecdote... More

We have enjoyed the pleasure of David's company and been the recipients of his encyclopaedic knowledge of Oxford on three occasions in the past. This latest meeting was a complete surprise after a birthday dinner the night before, David appeared with some of my friends and relatives on a perfect October day. David's tours are always tailor made for each... More

An Oxford experience with a difference, courtesy of David, despite almost continuous rain. Having met us at the junction of Keble Road with Banbury Road, he escorted us to the ultra-modern building that houses the Mathematical Institute, where we enjoyed a most interesting tour. This is not a building to be underestimated. From there we walked to Jericho and the... More

We did the Oxford City Walk end of Oktober with David. Thank you very much from Marion, Daniel, Anton and me for the wonderfully entertaining and very informative walk last weak in Oxford. For the boys it opened up a special insight into Oxford college life and what might await them should they choose to persue studies there. For my... More

We had an awesome day. David provided us with a very thorough overview of Oxford, showed us the major sights, provided reservations at an excellent restaurant. Customized our tour to include a brief time in the Pitt Rivers Museum, a must see for everyone. I highly recommend this company.

Thank you Oxford City Walk and tour guide Heidi. My husband and I were visiting the UK from Chicago. We have a special interest in JRR Tolkien and wanted to visit Oxford. Setting up the tour was seamless. We were able to do everything online and it was affordable. We expressed our interest in Tolkien and his Oxford haunts. Heidi... More

We had a FANTASTIC tour with David. I found it here on Tripadvisor & it did not disappoint!! We booked it in advance and David met us at our hotel. My daughter (20 years old) & I communicated via email on what we were interested in. We wanted to see Harry Potter, Inspector Lewis, Inspector Morse & Endeavour filming locations.... More
