      Great 2 hour walking tour!
      Really excellent couple of hours led by Richard, a very knowledgeable PhD student. The stories, as well as the history, make the wonderful buildings come alive. Highly reccomended. Cannot exhaustive as there is so much to see, but great experience and useful pointers along the way to focus our future exploring.

      Once located very infrequently
      Let’s start with the negative Meet location is vague as in you wait there but are not told to register in the building itself and it’s not very well advertised Once the tour started our guide Noah was very approachable and had a good sense of humour His knowledge was pretty good and threw in many facts A very interesting tour

      Fun theatrical ghost tour
      We throughly enjoyed the ghost tour. Our guide, Tilly, was very knowledgeable and had made a lot of effort with her costume. The tour took us down some fabulous streets in Oxford, and really allowed us to take in the beautiful architecture around us. The ghost stories were very interesting and entertaining. We would highly recommend this tour.

      Excellent informative tour with Ben
      This isn’t the cheapest tour but it’s worth every penny. Ben, our guide, was excellent. Fantastic detail of the timelines around Oxford University and its founding. Also very informative and fascinating as we went around the different parts of the college for 3 hours. We asked loads of questions and Ben answered them and encouraged conversation rather than just talk at us. Lovely guy, excellent guide and I’d thoroughly recommend the tour

      Brilliant potted history of Oxford in 2 hours
      This free tour, with Freya as our guide, was a fantastic introduction to Oxford. We were a family of 4 plus a dog, and she had us rapt for the full 2 hours! Soooo much information, lovely anecdotes, and a really enjoyable experience overall. Freya is a font of knowledge, thank you so much.

      Great tour for kids
      Our kids and we had a fantastic time. The group was only 10 so it gave kids the chance to ask many questions. Our guide was a lovely theatre student who interacted with kids.

      Excellent your guide
      We had a brilliant time today full of laughter and fun. Our tour guide was enthusiastic and had an expansive knowledge of both the history of Oxford and the Harry Potter filming locations. Our guide made a big effort to make sure everyone was engaged and having fun throughout. Even if you’re not a Harry Potter fan the tour has jaw dropping scenery that anyone can appreciate. Unfortunately we had to leave 15 minutes before the end to avoid a parking fine but we still felt like we’d had more than our moneys worth by that time.

      Harry Potter Walking Tour - Excellent
      The Harry Potter walking tour was excellent. Jake, our guide, was very well informed with lots of fun and interesting facts, about the buildings, statues and Harry Potter. The quiz was fun too! I would highly recommend Jake and this tour for Harry Potter fans. Excellent value for money, and Jake is very personable and great with kids .

      Money and time well spent
      Our guide was an Oxford student called Max on 14.02.24. He was very knowledgeable about the history of Oxford City and also explained to us the entrance process to Oxford university and his own experience in Oxford university. We really enjoyed the tour. We highly recommend this tour!

    We had a great tour with Amy. She spoke enthusiastically about what it is like to study at Oxford University and the difference between the colleges. She knows a lot about the history. We visited Exeter college and the Divinity School. Highly recommended!
