This private walking tour offers a more intimate experience as you discover the history behind landmarks such as the Bodleian Library, Bridge of Sighs, Sheldonian Theatre, and some lesser-known spots. You’ll also see some of the prestigious university colleges, and learn about the institution’s history.

We came on a private walking tour with Heidi as part of a charity auction fundraiser for Oxford's Restore Project. On a freezing cold, windy spring day, our guide Heidi gave a fascinating tour - despite living in Oxford, on and off, for most of my life, I certainly found out

Thank you! It is always a little nerve-wracking when we give tours for locals! However I guess that our 9 month of training paid off and I am so delighted you enjoyed the tour with me. It does mean a lot. I was thrilled to be able to contribute to the Restore project and help raise some funds. It is important to me to be able to 'give something back' Thank you again and with best wishes Heidi
