We were wandering around Oxford early one morning when we came across Lisa Maree, who was offering a 2hr guided walk around Oxford. The tour is free but you are free to tip and you will as this is a great tour. Informative, covering a lot of ground (at least our small group did). This is a great way to see and get your bearings around Oxford. Down narrow passage ways and cobblestones you cover the colleges, old pubs where famous people drank etc etc. Overall a brilliant tour with tips on what to explore in your own time. Well worth the tip and highly recommended.

This was one of the best walking tours we have taken.
Lisa is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about Oxford and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour. She gave us lots of information about things to do and places to visit after her tour had ended including a map with 2 further walks marked out.
Great way to see Oxford and highly recommended.

I knew I had enjoyed the Wander Oxford Walking Tour with Lisa, but I realised just how valuable it had been when, for the next week, I found myself recounting numerous fun facts I'd learned from her. Her tour provided a great overview of the city and its history. She also added so many fascinating stories that the history really came to life.

On the practical side, Lisa was very professional and organised throughout. The tour began promptly and was guided with care and attention. Her voice was suited for the stage--great projection, well articulated and well paced. She also provided useful tips on where to get the best photos, practical info for visiting various attractions, and even maps with additional routes for self-guided walking tours. And all with a never-ending smile. Highly recommended!

Lisa was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly and very accommodating. She explained the history of all the important landmarks, colleges and universities. She took us off the beaten track to some side streets and showed and told us about some interesting facts about the city Wall and a whole lot of other stuff. Most enjoyable couple of hours, I would highly recommend doing a tour with Lisa best way to learn about Oxford, its history and traditions. Thank you Lisa

Brilliant, amusing, engaging, educational and informative. Lisa's enthusiasm and love of the city shone throughout our tour. We would have enjoyed it if it had gone on all day. We loved the tour, came to love the city and Lisa was passionate about Oxford. You learnt so much even about doorways (the lion, the witch & the wardrobe). We didn't know about "sub fusc" until Lisa told us and realised we knew of it all the time. What an excellent way to spend a couple of hours, we can only recommend you join Lisa on one of her tours, she knows her stuff and her enthusiasm is infectious!

As a last minute idea, sitting on the train heading to Oxford, I decided to book a walking tour. So glad I did and that I chose Lisa to be my guide. She knows everything there is to know and more, showing us little hidden treasures on our 2 hour walk around the city.
Absolutely loved it and Lisa's energy and passion for Oxford made you want more than 2 hours as it felt like half that time.

Lisa doesn't charge its free but obviously tips are gratefully accepted and well worth offering. If your heading to Oxford do yourself a favor and book this tour as otherwise you just spend hours wondering around and missing out on history and secret alleyways :) Trust me you wont be sorry.

Make this the first thing you do in Oxford, a great way to get your bearings, see and learn about the city. Lisa was fantastic, enthusiastic, helpful, informative, funny and genuinely lovely. She made us feel as though we'd found oxford. Thank you

We had arrived in Oxford and were planning to walk around on our own. However as we were just looking at one of the many sites with no insight, we were fortunate to be invited to join Lisa Maree who was conducting her walking tour, this was the best thing we did all day. Lisa's knowledge, professionalism and passion for the history of this wonderful city was very apparent. Lisa was extremely accomodating and went out of her way to make sure that everyone in the group was catered for. Highly recommend Lisa. The tour is free but you can offer a tip at the end, this is well worth it.

We learned a lot on this tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. It really oriented us to the city and what it has to offer, its university and history. Lisa was friendly, clear, knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. Her map and suggestions for walks, pubs and museum visits were good choices. Overall, a great experience and a highly recommendable tour.

The tour was great. Lisa is an incredibly spontaneous guide and we were hooked from start to finish. She takes you from Oxford hotspots to places you would've never found with other tour guides. Next to that she also took into account that my mom has trouble walking because of a surgery and we couldn't be more thankful for that.

Finally she indirectly convinced us to visit Oxford two days in a row just to revisit and check out some of her recommendations in more detail and we have no regrets of doing so!
